Do what you were born to do. You have to trust yourself. They Did It First: 50 Icons, Luminaries and Legends Who Changed the World featres fifty trailblazing cultural icons who were not afraid to dream big and be the FIRST. Written by Megan Reid and a vibrantly illustrated by Jess Cruickshank, discover the incredible people who defied the boundaries of possibility and went on to revolutionize the world. You may know that J.K. Rowling was the first ever billionaire author, or that Pele was the first professional footballer to score 1,000 goals. You may also know that Stephen Hawking was the first person to explain black holes in space. But did you know that RuPaul Charles was the first drag queen to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? Or that Ang Lee was the first person of colour to win the Academy Award for best director? These iconic visionaries are all well-known; but their journeys and their stories are not. They came from all walks of life and faced different challenges, but all of them went on to achieve great things and make outstanding contributions to history, paving the way for others who came after them.
