Initially posted by People and In Contention. The real Amelia Earhart was so egoistic that she had her initials painted on her aviator jumpsuit, like some present-day bling-bling football player? Find me the photograph that proves this because I don’t believe it. The Earhart I’ve read about didn’t see herself as a rock star. She was brave, dedicated, modest, hardcore, etc. Yes, I could be wrong.
