Amelia Earhart
By: Irma N.
New York, Grade 5



The first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean, she opened the skies to other women. In 1937 while attempting to become the first person to fly around the world, Earhart’s plane disappeared over the Pacific Ocean. Amelia Earhart was a very confident and brave women. She was very well educated. She went to two different schools, Columbia and Harvard Universities. She was determined to prove that women can do the same things men can do. In 1932 she proved that and she flew across the Alantic Ocean. She made the excruciating trip in 20 hours and 40 minutes. She made this trip all by herself and made lots of men jealous I'm sure! Amelia Earhart will be recognized for decades to come!
