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.

"Wow! 5 Airlines!" "You're so good!" These are some of the enormous compliments, among many others, I would often get from people when they find out I have been with 5 airlines as a Flight Attendant. To be honest, I feel both proud and shy at the same time. Proud because who wouldn't be? Shy because first, I understand it's a dream of many, yet not all are able to make it and I don't want anyone feeling sad or down that they are unable to, while others, including me, can. Second, shy because I wasted the time and privileges all laid down for me to enjoy to the fullest. I took 5 chances for granted.
We have attended numerous cabin crew graduations and there is one thing common among all, TEARS! Yes training can be hard and challenging that sometimes, you just want to give up. Well think about it, the best things in life are never easy and that includes travelling. Other people works hard to be able to pay to travel. As a cabin crew, you are paid to travel!

December 8, 2010. I was already nervous that night because I didn't know what to do, what I will say, if I will make it or not. Nevertheless, I told myself, "it's okay if I do not get accepted, for as long as I tried".
