    This week, I present my connections to people that were the first in their field to
    accomplish something famous.

    Here they are:

    Amelia Earhart, first woman to make a solo Trans-Atlantic flight
    Roald Amundsen, first to visit both the South and North Poles
    Clara Washington Burrill, first woman to be editor of the Boston Review
    Leif Erikkson, first European to land in North America
    Margaret Thatcher, first female British Prime Minister
    Alexandra David-N˙el, first European woman to visit Tibet
    Harold Melville Clark, first person to deliver mail between Hawaiian Islands Neil Armstrong, first man on the moon
    Sir Edmund Hillary, first person to reach the top of Mt. Everest
    Bert Hinkler, first person to fly solo from England to Australia

    I am:

    18 degrees from Amelia Earhart
    39 degrees from Leifur Eir˙ksson
