Every present aspirant may or may not be a future flight attendant, but every present flight attendant was a former aspirant. When you see a flight attendant, thoughts of "how to be like them" or "how did they do it" may come to your head. Guess what, way back, they were just like you, an aspirant, who also had dreams of becoming a flight attendant one day.
So come to think of it, as an aspirant, you too may be in the shoes of those flight attendants you look up to, for as long as you work hard for it.
Every present flight attendant has their own story as a former aspirant. They are all different from one another but with a common goal. Some endured more than 20 rejections, some went through many life challenges just to make their flight attendant dream come true, and some had to endure so much negativity from others. All their stories were unique but they all had one common goal, which was to be a flight attendant.
We have shared plenty of flight attendant stories on our inspirational section and from there, you will see that all these former aspirants had took different roads toward one single mountain, and that is to climb the peak to be a cabin crew. They never got to their destinations all at the same time, but regardless, they still made it.
So if you are still an aspirant right now and you know deep in your heart that you are a future flight attendant, do not feel intimidated if others get there first. Becoming a flight attendant is not a competition between you and others. The only competitor you have is yourself.
So be proud to say that you are a future flight attendant, because every present cabin crew once said those very same words. Dream it, and work hard for it.
Good luck future flight attendant!
