June 25, 1930= i finaly set a speed record.  i set the womens speed record for 100 killometers  and no load,  ive been setting many records now.  not only are they womens but many mens as well. ive been working on my speed and my times and they are turning out really well.  going far is a big thing for me because im trying to set goals for myself and be a bigger impact on the women and let them know they can do whatever they set thier mind to no matter what. all it takes is trying and hard work,   oh and maybe a little practice.

May 20-21, 1932= i accieved the most important record.  I was the first woman to fly accross the atlantic solo. it took me 14 hours and 56 minutes. i got awarded the distinguished flying cross. that was a great achievement and i got an award for something i love doing.  later on i also set a record from flying coast to coast. the record was 17 hours. i was exstatic when i found out that i finally did it.

I was born July 24 in 1897.  i'm from ATchinson kansas. Im all about flying airplpanes and bing an independent woman and having fun.  the danger of it is what gives me a kick.  i love being thrilled and tring things most women wouldn't before.  For example im the first woman to fly an airplane.  I love flying its great. i have quiet a number of siblings and my family  is very close. me and my sister muriel went to private schools.  Even when i was little i was very interested in flying airlplanes and the way they work. My first major accomplishment was when i was the first woman to fly across the atlantic ocean. I set many records in my life time . my biggest goal was to fly  accross  the red sae to india. at the end of world war 1 i attended college to become a doctor.

it takes patience and work and you pulled it off great.  you risked so much.  it's also great to hear the amount of awards you have recived and how many records you set and broke. all froma woman.
