Martin Lawrence Cooper

by Amber from Kaohsiung in Taiwan

My hero is Martin Lawrence Cooper. He was born on December 26, 1928, in Chicago. He studied at the Illinois Institute of Technology. In 1973, Cooper successfully invented the world's first mobile phone. He changed people's communication habits at the time.

Cooper’s success created a new era of wireless communication. On April 3rd, 1973, Martin Cooper took the cellular phone technology to New York to demonstrate it to reports and the public, where a call was made while standing on Sixth Avenue. In 1973, He and his team produced Motorola DynaTAC . From 1973 to 1983, he and his team made five changes to the phone. The current mobile phone, after his previous improvements, has become lighter, more convenient, and more common.

I learned from him that it is very important to stick to your dreams. Even if you are not recognized by everyone at the beginning, you can't give up. If you don't give up, you will succeed.
