The first flight is exciting for everyone…but not just the first one. Today withover 3 000 flight hours I still get excited. I remember my first flight as a passenger to Copenhagen, Denmark when I was at the age of 11 and I had to travel as unaccompanied minor (alone). I was very scared beacuse I had never experienced the feeling of flying high into the skies and actually that was the time I realized that this was the best feeling in the world! As a child, I used to get so excited each time when a plane was passing by and I remember the goosebumps all over my body because of the loud noise! If I have to be honest it has never been a dream of mine to become a flight attendant when I grow up…but I guess destiny knows better. I used to work as a flight attendant for 4 years and a half, I am 25 years old from Sofia, Bulgaria. I started my career at the age of 19 and it was a little bit stressful for me as it was my first job! A lot of stories – some of them funny, оther confusing, daily contact with different people has helped me to grow up and thanks to my current job today I am who I am – a person who can react adequately in different situations and solve problems easily. Aviation is something amazing, something incredible that can’t be explained just in words, all I know for sure is – anyone who tastes the pleasure of flying once won’t give up on it that easily!
