Where I’ve been: I’m now on the Emirates Business Promotions team!

It’s hard to believe that almost a year ago I applied for a Cabin Crew position with Emirates. When I received my golden call and accepted the opportunity, I decided to set a few goals for myself within the company.

Today, I am happy to share with you that I have achieved one of these goals. You are looking at one of the newest members of the Emirates Business Promotions team!

This means that I will be representing the airline at numerous events around the world (such as tennis matches, baseball games etc.) and speaking to media. I may also be selected to appear on television and participate in Emirates official photo shoots and commercials. I’m not sure when my first event will be, but I’m really looking forward to this new adventure!

As I’ve said before in my previous posts, I applied for a Cabin Crew position with Emirates twice before being selected. Even though being turned down the first time was discouraging, I picked myself up and tried again. Now look what I’ve managed to accomplish! The moral of this story and why I’m sharing all of this with you is because I believe that..

…to be successful you must maintain a positive attitude no matter what is going on around you. Focus on your previous successes rather than your failures, and use this energy to plan the next steps you need to take to fulfil your goals. Do not linger on the distractions that may be thrown your way, and always remember that anything is possible”

Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout this crazy journey. I hope I’m making you proud! <3

My first month in Dubai

crewHey everyone!

I’ve been living in Dubai for over a month now, and I am glad that I made the decision to come here. It was tough, and the first few days were the hardest, but I’m thankful I have been able to make the friends that I have.

The first two weeks were challenging. When I first arrived in Dubai, I was taken right to my accommodation. I had two days to myself before I started “induction”– an introductory week prior to training. This gave me the opportunity to check out the area I was placed in, and to get to know my “flatmate” –a fancy term for roommate.

On the first day of induction, you are divided into “batches” –groups of people.  Those in your batch are referred to as your “batch mates”, and you train together for the two months you are at the Emirates Aviation College for. We ended up becoming the best of friends in my case, and have done so much together since joining!

The actual training commences during your second week. Classes can be difficult, but the support you receive from your teachers and your peers is incredible. I’m now in my fifth week, and will be receiving my full uniform soon- red hat and all!

I could go on and on about training, but if you have any specific questions you’d like me to try and answer for you, shoot me a comment either here or through social media! I’m going to do as best I can to answer them all, and update the blog every week.

Cheers!
