Amelia Earhart...flew planes and broke records, taught at Purdue University ( where they built her her own runway!) and guess what she taught?...women's studies! WAY before anyone else had even thought of it! Kudos to Purdue University for their forward thinking!, She wrote numerous books about her flights thst were published by her husband M. Putnam of Putnam Books, designed clothing for Abercrombie and Fitch! She was an adventurer in every sense of the word!
I admire her, and my admiration for her has grown every year. While I do not always agree with her decision as Secretary of State, it is wonderful to see a woman that is proud of her intelligence and unapologetic about her ambition.
Bill Cosby--he is a funny guy and I have always enjoyed that. However, I admire him because of his bold stand on family and right and wrong. Of late he has said things that need to be said to young all people, especially black kids. I also admire him for continuing his education AFTER he was a superstar. There is much to admire about Dr. Cosby!
