Hypatia of Alexandria was a mathematician from the country of Egypt whom is well known for her contributions in the bases of algebra and geometry.

It started when she won her first election and became the President of the Student Conservative Association at Oxford; she was able to meet helpful supporters at an early age that she would use later (Margaret Thatcher Foundation). After Oxford, she ran twice to be a Member of Parliament for a town in the outskirts of London in Dartford, Kent; did not even come close in both races but it made her the youngest woman to run in the country. In the 1952 Thatcher took a break from politics and trained to be a lawyer, who specialized in taxation. She tried to find other places in Parliament however; it was difficult at that time because of how the Conservatives felt about women with young children should not have a career. After years of trying she was chosen to be the Member of Parliament as Conservative candidate for Finchley in northern London on October 1959.

She had my little sister at 31, only after dating my step-father for some odd months and becoming engaged.
“I would rather be a beggar and single, than a Queen and married.” Elizabeth was born on September 7, 1533 in Greenwich, England. She was the last heir of the Tudor Dynasty. In this essay, I will be talking about how Queen Elizabeth I was one of the greatest Queens in history and, possibly, the greatest Queen of the Renaissance time period. When Elizabeth was a child, she was often forgotten; first, because she was a girl, and second because she was the youngest girl in the family. She had a rough and dark childhood because of this and many other things; however, Elizabeth overcame the dark parts of her childhood and accomplished many great feats while she was Queen.
