Amelia Earhart was born on July 24th 1897 in Kansas. Amelia did not have a fatherly figure in her life so she and her sister were raised by their single mother. Amelia graduated high school at Hyde Park High School in 1915. Amelia flew planes for a living and never stopped showing a love for being in the air. Amelia Earhart was 14 when she saw her first plane and instantly knew she wanted to fly a plane. Amelia took her first plane ride when she was 20 and flew her first airplane in 1920.
