My father is already 60 years old but ye,t he never looked like it. He never forgets to post his "OOTD" everyday because he’s really into fashion.. He shops for my clothes, shoes, bags, and accessories which is really unusual because some fathers don’t do things like that. Everytime I’m in Davao, my parents would always surprised me with new stuff .

I have always wanted to be a flight attendant since I was 7 years old. The guys in our family are all seamen and I do not know of any relatives of ours who works for the airline. So here I am who wants to for the airline, despite my clan who are mostly in the medical field and some relatives who are overseas Filipino workers. Even if I graduated from a nursing couse, I did not pursue a nurse career as I really did not see myself in it.

I just graduated last September 19, 2017 as a Qatar Airways cabin crew and until now, I still can't believe that I am here. I got used to a simple life with mama, papa, my nephews and nieces doing charity works in the barangay. I never considered to be a flight attentand as my sister is one already. I am not as smart and pretty as my sister. We are always being compared and I admit that she's really smart. So it's a big no no for me to even try to be a flight attendant.

7 years in. Was all that flying worth it? That is the question I’m asking myself right now.
As I’m writing this. I’m sitting beside my 84 year old grandmother who’s battling dementia, as she stares at me blankly wondering who I was. A lot of emotions was triggered inside of me when my grandfather passed away a week ago. Regrets, if maybe I could have spent a lil' (or probably a lot) more quality time with him before he passed. An opportunity I really didn't have at hand since our lifestyle consists of a lot of flying.

“It only takes a person 12seconds to look at your whole image once you come into a room.” is one of the best tips I got during my Personality Development class a few years back. Once someone walks in a room, it will only take you 12 seconds to “check him/her out”.

Mother. Mama. First Teacher. Inspiration. Old Lady. Inay. Ina. Mudra. Mudrabelles. Mudrakels. Inangshiwa. Whatever you wish to call this person, the essence stays the same. A popular English saying is that it takes the whole village to raise a child. True, we all owe our upbringing to our parents and other significant individuals (and events) which shaped us. Today, we turn the spotlight to our mothers.

Before giving up on your current job, you might want to consider these things.
Don’t quit just because you’re tired.
Remember: all other jobs in the world can make you exhausted.
Go get some good sleep, good food, and stretch out a little in the gym or do some simple exercises to energize yourself. (Not unless it’s something serious concerning your health but still consider it as the last option for you would need financial assistance in this case)
Also, just try to look back and recall what you’ve been through just to be where you are now. Imagine the struggles of those who would want to be in your place now.
Every cabin crew today was a dreamer before. They were like you, who had that dream to be a flight attendant. They were like you who wanted to turn their dreams into reality. Moreso, they were once like you, an aspirant who went through many directions and challenges. We understand many of you our readers also want to become cabin crew members one day and we are here to help you out realize that dream.
We usually receive inspiring stories from cabin crew members about their journey to earn their much coveted wings.

Dacubor shares us that his daughter, Keena, has always wanted to be a flight attendant since the tender age of 4 and now, she is indeed living her dream.

I have plans for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
This is what I have been holding on to during the days that I keep on having nothing but rejections from the airlines that I have applied at. Six rejections to be exact. I was about to give up but God keeps on reminding me of the plans that He had promised so I continued dreaming. One day, this open day hiring came and of all the applications I had, this is the one where I didn't feel any pressure of getting in.
