Motivational Keynote Speaker Amelia Rose Earhart is a celebrated pilot and philanthropist who is best recognized as one of the youngest woman ever to fly around the globe in a single engine aircraft. From June 24 to July 11th 2014, Amelia and her co-pilot Shane Jordan flew a Pilatus PC-12 NG around the world through 14 countries, crossing the equator 6 times. The trip totaled over 28,000 grueling miles. With such a famous namesake, Amelia’s journey to finding her own identity has become a source of inspiration as she flies around the globe delivering keynote speeches at leadership summits, corporate conferences and university speakers’ series among other keynote speaking opportunities.
For many years, Amelia had been told she was related to the famous Amelia Mary Earhart. Following a genealogical search in 2013, she found out there was no traceable evidence linking the two. For so long she had found her identity in this seemingly possible family tie but now she was forced to reinvent herself. Her comeback story of personal growth and perseverance through life’s unexpected obstacles has made her one of the most compelling Motivational Speakers for hire today.
Amelia didn’t take her first flight lesson until she was 21 years old. While training to become a certified pilot, she spent over 8 years working as a TV news anchor for NBC affiliates in Denver and Los Angeles. In November of 2013, Amelia was invited to be a featured keynote speaker at a TEDX event held in Denver.
Motivational Keynote Speaker Amelia Rose Earhart is the president and founder of the Fly With Amelia Foundation, founded in 2013. Her non-profit organization provides scholarships for flight training to young women aged 16-18 and works with other non-profit organizations to promote/advance the aviation and aerospace industry.
