An airplane aisle that is! Yes, I am indeed to see you, our future flight attendants, walk down the aircraft aisle, assisting passengers, ensuring everyone are following the safety procedures, you doing safety demos, greeting passengers and all. In other words, I am excited to see you live your dreams.
Whenever I would attend cabin crew graduations at PAL, PAL Express, Cebu Pacific, and CebGo, some newly winged cabin crew would approach me and say "Mond, follower ako ng Flyhigh Manila dati pa. Lagi ko tinitignan ang pictures ng mga FA at iniimagine ko sarili ko. Binabasa ko ren mga writeup at pinanonood ko mga video." Then they would follow with a "ngayon nandito na ako." Wow, everytime I would hear those words, I felt like I just won the lotto jackpot!
Hearing these stories would always remind me that nothing is impossible in this world and our goals are always within our reach. We just have to have faith in God, always pray, work hard, humble ourselves, accept our mistakes, and never give-up. Never forget that God hears our prayers.
As I go by my everyday work here in Flyhigh Manila, I always pray for all of you aspirants that you would soon walk down that aircraft aisle, that you all live your dreams, and that I become your passenger in all my flights.
All these are also a reminder to our future flight attendants that our present cabin crew were once in your shoes, dreamers, and those who would always check our website, our social media accounts, and who would watch our videos on our YouTube channel, Flyhigh Manila TV. If you feel that things are getting hard, always remember that these present cabin crew went through the same process. If they did, you can too!
