Amelia Earhart was never afraid to try new things. She built her own roller coaster in the backyard when she was only seven years old. During the winter she loved to speed down the hills on her sled—lying on her belly like the boys. When she saw her first air show in 1920, she was hooked and soon began taking flying lessons. During her aviation career she set many world records and became a well-known and well-respected aviator. She disappeared while attempting a flight around the world in 1937.
