Amelia Earhart

“The most difficult thing is the decision to act. The rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control the procedure. The process is its own reward.”

—Amelia Earhart

Amelia Earhart Pilot (1897- 1939) was an American pilot who made several flight records, including being the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. A fierce advocate for women, she helped form the The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female aviators. She also acted as a university aeronautical engineer advisor and acted as a career counsellor to female students.  Amelia’s bright life was cut short when she disappeared over the Pacific Ocean in her attempt to become the first woman pilot to circumnavigate the earth.
