What makes someone innovative? That depends on what you think. I think an innovative person helps the world by leaving something positive behind. Some innovative people are: Martin Luther King, Bill Gates, Thomas Edison, and Alexander Graham Bell. All of these people left behind something that helped change the world for the better, whether it be technology, or a legacy that helped change the way a people was treated.
Two of my favorite innovators are the Wright brothers. They pioneered flight, showed that anyone can change the world, and that even if you don't succeed the first couple times you can eventually get it right. Their friends and families even considered them crazy but sometimes in order to innovative you have to be a little crazy. The Wright brothers left a enormous impact on the world, and that's why they're my favorite innovators.
