Bessie Coleman - First Black Woman Pilot
Bessie Coleman wanted to fly, and she wouldn't take no for an answer. As the first Black Woman with a pilot's license, she proved her skill as a stunt pilot.
She manage to get her pilot license despite the fact that she was a woman, black, and no instructor in the United States including the black ones would train her. But that didn't stop Bessie she continued to work as manicurist by day saving her money and by night she taught herself French. You see France was the only country at the time more open to training black pilots. Most people come up with every excuse in the book for they don't pursue their dreams. When I read this story even I felt ashamed, ashamed that I'm not working hard enough to achieve my goals. This story have motivated me to no longer complain about the hardships of building a business. What's your excuse? Are you pursuing your dreams?
