Just a few days ago, many people especially flight attendants were moved by the story of a Saudia flight attendant named Man. As she says, "My name is Man but I'm a woman." She is one of those rare stories we get to read about someone who went through the toughest of times in her life, ending up to be a flight attendant travelling the world. The whole story of F/A Man can be found here.
If the TV series "Maalala Mo Kaya" was to feature the life of F/A Man, we are sure this would not only bring tears down everyone's eyes, it will definitely serve as an inspiration for everyone about strength and courage in the toughest monents of our lives.
To give you an idea, before Man became a flight attendant, she went through a lot of trials in her life. Her mother passed away at a young age, her father left her and her sibblings after a nervous breakdown that she was forced to work as a saleslady in a mall and at the same time, sell vegetables and fish in the streets just to be able to feed them. When she saw a poster about a flight attendant job, she recalled her mom's wish for her and then she applied at a local airline wearing a 5-Peso top she bought just around. All her hard work and prayers paid off, she became a flight attendant and then became an international flight attendant.
Behind everything are very important life lessons we can learn from the story of F/A Man, and here they are:
From sleeping in the streets of Manila selling vegetables and fish to walking the streets of Paris and tasting the best cuisine around the world, F/A Man indeed deserves her place in the world right now.
