Pros: traveling the world, meeting new people, cultural awareness, discussions with people, taking care of others, responsible for safety, an education
Cons: irate passengers, delays, unknown destinations, upset children flying alone, scared passengers
I became a Flight Attendant after graduating from College. My vast travels as a child helped me with this decision. My family insisted each year that we experience a variety of destinations for our family vacations. My mother a Flight Attendant of past years, looked at this as an education all in its own.
I enjoyed the idea of traveling to destinations – more... new to me. I have a genuine knack to communicate with people from all walks of life, and enjoy getting to know their ideas and thoughts on many subjects. I enjoyed the many cultures I came into contact with and also enjoyed learning about different life styles.
I enjoy helping people, and was ready and prepared to help and assist passengers regardless of their age or background if an emergency were to arise. I am level headed and can think and perform well under pressure. I was not afraid of this scenario. The overall experience is one I shall never forget. – less
