In 1928, Amelia Earhart was the first woman to fly non-stop across the Atlantic Ocean.
She also broke a number of other world records for flying.
She was also a successful writer who wrote best-selling books about her flying experiences.
However, she is most famous for her attempt to fly around the world in 1937.
Before she could finish her trip, she suddenly disappeared somewhere over the Pacific Ocean.
No one ever heard from her again.
Hundreds of articles and books have been written about Amelia Earhart.
Her adventurous life shows that women can do whatever they want.
Still today, many young girls are motivated when they read Earhart’s story.
