“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” Whenever I start to feel doubtful, nervous and even downright freaked out about where this new life-changing future may take me, Eleanor Roosevelt’s iconic words give me strength. As… Continue reading My Emirates Journey, Part 4: Hello Tomorrow!
Hiii again! I figured I’d break up the AD process and FI (Final Interview, or F2F for U.S.-based airlines) in two separate posts so it doesn’t become an unbearably long essay, even though my FI was the day after my AD. Please forgive my peabrain memory if I gloss over some details since this all… Continue reading My Emirates Journey, Part 3: FI, IC + OH
