Woman of Flight – Amelia Earhart
By Tammy Scarbrough
  

1     Amelia Earhart was born in Atchison, Kansas, on July 24, 1897. She was a tomboy –she enjoyed climbing trees, hunting, and sledding in deep snow. When she was about ten years old, she saw her first airplane but wasn't really interested at the time. Ten years later, she took her first ride in an airplane. From that moment, she knew that she was going to fly.
 
2     Amelia began taking flight lessons and set out to fulfill her dream of flying. She spent many hours and worked hard at learning to fly because this was not something that she was naturally good at. In 1922, she broke the record for highest altitude ever reached by a woman.
 
3     She became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic in 1928. Then she set her sights on being the first woman to fly around the world.
