Upgrading Her Seat Assignment

Dear Boeing, I have been in and out of your aircraft almost every day. I have been working for an airline for nine years and still counting.

My best moment was when I was working in one of them as a flight attendant, and one day I realized that I am not supposed to be at the back, but rather at the front, flying these massive aircraft. That's when I decided to train and become a pilot. Currently training for my CPL [commercial pilot license] and I own the only pilot shop in Kenya.

Thank you for being my inspiration.

My first solo flight.
