Spotlight: Amelia Earhart

 "Please know I am quite aware of the hazards. I want to do it because I want to do it. Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be but a challenge to others." 
--Amelia Earhart

Amelia Earhart was the first female pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic ocean. Truly inspirational, she was an active women's rights supporter and she wrote captivating books about her experiences. Fun fact: she also created her own fashion line. She is remembered today for her remarkable determination, courage, groundbreaking achievements, and adventurous spirit.

Nice post for Amelia! If you have never read the older book "I was Amelia Earhart" I highly recommend it. It's a fictional account on what COULD have happened to her. But it captures the real Amelia well people say.

She was an amazing woman. So inspiring for her independent spirt and go getter mindset.
