Sally Ride

This essay is on Sally k. Ride. She should be on the Honor Roll of Notable Women because she also controlled the arm thingy for the firs time! The only way she was able to be who she is was because she refused to quit college and join a pro tennis player, thatís a smart thing to do.
My personal feeling about her achievement is that she was the first woman to be in space and that she showed to women everywhere that they could do anything they want, as long as they really try and do what they need to do. Just the fact that she was chosen at all to join the team to be in space is amazing enough alone!
