Many people do not know that Maria Montessori was actually the first female doctor in Italy. Maria is an inspiring role model for girls as she had to overcome some prejudice to achieve her dream of becoming a doctor. When her first application at medical school was refused, Maria stayed firm in her belief and told the interviewing professor, “I know I shall become a doctor”.
