A woman with down syndrome finally saw her dream turn into a reality as she became a flight attendant for a day aboard a Southwest Airlines flight. Tracy Sharp, from Sacramento CA, wore her uniform and wings for a day as she greeted and helped other flight attendants serve passengers. Thanks to one of their cabin crew named Vicki Heath, who really made sure that Sharp's lifelong dream would finally become a reality.
The two met aboard a different Southwest flight where they had a brief conversation. Sharp then told F/A Vicki Heath that it had long been her dream to one day become a flight attendant.
This prompted Heath to do something different. She coordinated with Southwest Airlines, to bring Tracy Sharp aboard a flight not as a passenger, but as a flight attendant for a day! With everything well coordinated, Sharp flew on a Southwest flight from Sacramento to Seattle sporting her uniform and wings. She worked as an assistant to the regular flight attendants.
"You're going to make me cry!" Heath replied when asked about bringing the whole thing together by a reporter. "I feel like I'm living my purpose-driven life. And that's huge."
