Biography:

Amelia Mary Earhart was born at July 24th 1897 at Atchison, Kansas, USA. Her parents' names were Edwin and Amy, while Amelia was born her mother died and she was named after her. In her life Amelia flew all over the world and mainly in the USA area. Amelia's place of death is unknown; she decided to fly alone- all over the world and her whereabouts are unknown. . Obviously, she got famous for being the first woman that learned how to fly and helped the universe.

In 1919, Amelia thought that in the future she will be a doctor and she even started to learn at Colombia University. Amelia went with her father to an exhibition about airplanes and fell madly in love with it and from that day she participated in ten minute flights. Right then she decided that she wanted to be a pilot. Amelia's lessons took place in Kinner Airstar, she loved the lessons and her teacher Neta Snook. During her hard training Amelia had supporting parents that filled her with love, believed in her success and pushed her further.

In her private life Amelia was engaged to Shmuel Cheffman, a lawyer from Boston, but in November 1928 she decided to break the engagement. Later, she married Putnam but they agreed to have an "open marriage".
Amelia's first flight took place in her first lessoned, and after many years she decided to be the first pilot to circle the world at the equator. She chose to fly with Fred Noonan who was a very talented navigator, with the experience both in the air and in the sea. Her first trial failed and she was doing nicely on her second try. Amelia and Noonan had 8,000 kilometers left, where they were supposed to get guidance from a ship which would let them land on a small island in the Pacific Ocean called Howland Island. Unfortunately, they could not understand the signals from the ship and they were running low on gas. The end of this story is unknown and there are lots of versions to the tragedy.

We have lost a great woman. We have lost a brave pilot. We have lost a person who dared to dream. Amelia was a practical person; she planned her way to victory carefully. She made trip after trip learning each from the other. She made mistakes but she was well loved. She was impulsive and a dreamer and yet had two feet on the ground.
Today we lost her, but we have great inspiration from a great daring woman. What more can be said about her?
She is a woman how contributed and changed the world's attitude, especially the woman. She had opened up a window of opportunity for woman to dream, hope and dare. Thanks to her, we woman dare to take significant steps to better the country, mankind and the world.

Her last flight is a mystery-why did she fly alone? How and when did she crash? There are many versions for her tragic ending which show how the world loved and respected her. Today we have lost a wonderful, brave woman. The more we learn about her life and death the more we grow in respect her.

We want to give hope to men, children and especially for women who wants to dare and dream.. We want to encourage everyone to continue her wonderful way of giving, helping, daring and just dreaming.
