Amelia Earhart

by Maggie from Cincinnati

Amelia Earhart is my hero because she was the first female pilot...and I knew about her. She was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic...alone. She was the first woman to receive a pilot's license. It was her, I tell you, her! She is my hero! She even showed the world another air force could fly. They were called the Tuskegee Airmen. When she died all I know is her plane got lost over the Pacific Ocean. I love how Amelia showed the world anyone could fly! Back then they thought girls couldn't do as much as boys. Amelia is super great to be a pilot. That is why Amelia is my hero.
