Wow. Where do I start. Where do I begin. A little over a year ago I would have never imagined being in the place I am in on today. As of 3:00pm on 28 April I have earned my wings as a Flight Attendant with Southwest Airlines. There were many nights I cried more than I slept. Questioned God and myself and wanted to give up during the process. But when GOD has a plan for you, no one can separate you from that and for this I am grateful. I am truly honored to be in such a place and space as this. It's a great feeling when he honors your dreams, goals and your vision. I can't thank him enough for being who he is to me.
To my instructors and classmates: Class 360, WE DID IT. The long nights and the tears as well as much needed prayers were necessary for our growth. We've learned to trust even when we can't trace and that right there alone is a blessing in and of itself. Millions didn't make it. But we are SOME of the ones who did.
To my Fly Girl / Sister Deena : Thanks to you for believing in me and trusting me with your name during the process. You are a GEM. You have NO IDEA how much you motivated me to keep pushing. I can't wait to see you in the skies.
To that little girl who always dreamt of reaching for that goal, here is my advice: TAKE THE LEAP, the reward is worth the risk.
