Ellie is a schoolgirl who flies planes in her spare time.
I flew solo on my 14th birthday
My teacher put me into isolation. We had to write about my weekend and I explained I flew a 1943 aircraft and spoke to an astronaut.
I play electric guitar
I am a high achieving STEM student during the school day and the youngest female solo pilot at the weekend. I also do some media/TV work.
I have always had a calling to fly. As soon as I could talk I wanted to be a pilot.
I started at age 9.
I have several mentors and would love to become one to other girls like me .
I have so many inspirations. I will mention my dad though.
My dad never expected me to wear pink. But he did an amazing dad thing by writing me 2 85,000 word novels about amazing girls in 1918. Those girls could achieve anything. It was a pretty special thing to do.
That there are bursaries and scholarships to support girls.
Making a difference. Oh, and the assumptions that people make because I am a girl are often funny.
Never let being different feel wrong. It's great to be unique.
