Dear Mayor Johnson,
I would like to suggest that you name the park after the famous physicist and chemist Marie Curie.
She was born on 7th November, 1867 in Warsaw. After boarding school, she became a governess to help pay for her sister’s education. Later, she went to university in Paris and got degrees in Physics and Maths. Marie and her husband, Pierre, discovered Polonium and Radium and Marie developed a theory of radioactivity. She won the Nobel Prizes in Physics and Chemistry.
Marie Curie was a scientific pioneer and an inspirational woman. I think she is a very good choice to name the park after.
Yours sincerely,
Anna Smith.
