These pictures remind me of all the tears, rejections and struggles I went through in the past 2 years of trying to achieve my dream job. I have received 7 rejections from different airlines and I even came to the point where I started doubting myself and thought that maybe this job is really not meant for me.
Then February this year, Qatar Airways happened. I was in the middle of "should I go" or "not to go" because I was terrified of being rejected again, but, I still went despite of having doubts. Luckily with God's grace, after the long process of hiring, medical and expensive skin and dental care requirements, I made it. Doha was where the training started. Almost 2 months of sleepless nights of reviewing and also waking up early in the morning to come to our training, passing all our written exams and the nerve-wracking practical exams, everything has finally paid off despite all the hardships, sacrifices and the homesickness. God has really planned something big for me. God is really good.
To everyone, most especially to my family and friends, my AB 1338 batchmates, and my instructors who didn't stop believing in me, supporting me and pushed me on to achieving my dream, thank you! To those people who were very understanding when I didn't have enough time to answer all your calls and messages because of my busy schedule, thank you and I'm sorry, you know who you are and I am beyond grateful to have you in my life. To Mama and Papa, thank you for always accompanying me before whenever I would attend Open Days and Mass Hirings in Manila and Clark. You have seen all my struggles and sadness whenever I get rejected and now, Mama and Papa, may Flight Attendant na po kayo.
This is all for you! I love and miss you all! I miss home. See you all very soon
