Why is she a hero?
I think Amelia is a hero because she did so many great things. For one when she was growing up, she chose to wear bloomers, and was aware that no other girls in her village did. She was always different, one of the first to break the tradition. She did not care that it was only the males who flew planes and things. And, as well, she flew solo across the Atlantic ocean, which is quite an achievement!
