A Pilot by Heart Amelia Earhart was the first female pilot, she was not interested in flying until after college. She was the first women to acutely fly along over any ocean. I admire her strength, determination, and the way she loved flying. Amelia Earhart is a famous person with a bad childhood that wasn 't the way someone would like to remember but it taught her some great things in life. She was born on July 24, 1897 in Aitchison Kansas.
Amelia as a nurse probably could have done many things, but with her being a pilot she achieved so much more. Amelia set a record time across the Atlantic Ocean, was the first woman to ever cross the Atlantic and opened her own organization of female pilots. Amelia worked hard for her job as a pilot and as they needed many nurses back in the 1900s she wouldn’t have had to work that hard. Amelia went to visit her sister only to find that World War 1 soldiers were badly wounded, therefore making this point stronger. Overall, Amelia should have never even thought about becoming a nurse as she wouldn’t have had the opportunities she did as a
Being a woman made Amelia’s accomplishments shine brighter because “the future for women then was limited- not much more to aspire to beyond motherhood and being a homemaker” (Masters). According to Biography.com, ”she strove to be an example of courage, intelligence and self-reliance. She hoped her influence would help topple negative stereotypes about women and open doors for them in every field”. Amelia’s love for flying and challenging the world’s ideas of what women could do inspired other women to do the same. Unlike Amelia Earhart, many female pilots had their sights set on flying in the Army although “there were no women ferry pilots in 1937: that classification didn’t surface until World War II, when women were enlisted to fly new aircraft from factories to army airfields” (Masters).
Amelia Earhart was an inspiration to many young women and many future generations to come. She flew therefore to “prove that women can do the same things as men” (wixsite). Furthemore Earhart believed that “the more women fly, the more who become pilots, the quicker we will be recognized” (amelia earhart museum). She encouraged other women to learn to fly, to illustrate “Earhart urged mothers to allow their daughters to take lessons” (amelia earhart museum). She strongly “believed women needed to step forward together and open doors for one another” (wix site).
She opened up so many opportunities for women all over the world. She caused medical schools to open up and accept women. She helped women accomplish things that were thought to be impossible just years before. “As a pioneer for women into a field dominated by men, she has become a role model for young women everywhere” (newworldencyclopedia.org). Elizabeth persevered and became a great doctor.
In addition to gaining rewards, Malala Yousafzai took them and impacted everyone. November 10th is now the day of global action; this day was made to promote education for girls around the world. Also, Malala Yousafzai created the Malala fund which is a charity for schools everywhere. She later wrote "an autobiography, I am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban,"(Biography in Context). Malala Yousafzai is a hero because she "is recognized as a voice for children, education, and womens ' rights,"(Biography in Context).
This study is important for me to include in my research because it establishes the importance of creating a STEM track in all high schools and promoting students to go into STEM careers, as opposed to the other articles written by Lace, Newin and Cohen, who focus primarily on humanities. BTHS is a STEM high school that is mentioned in this study; so, BTHS can focus on humanities in addition to the STEM subjects and not detract from students’ performance in the maths and
Amelia Earhart was and still is an inspiration to so many people by influencing women’s rights and by being the first aviatrix that inspired so many other women to not only to be a pilot but they can be whoever they want to be. “Amelia Earhart (July 24, 1897 disappeared July 2, 1937), fondly known as ‘Lady Lindy’ was an American activator who mysteriously disappeared in 1937 while trying to circumnavigate the globe from the equator.” https://www.biography.com/people/amelia-earhart-9283280 A plane Earhart was flying disappeared somewhere near Holland Island in the Pacific Ocean.
