Pay it Forward!

Good day, cabin crew aspirants! First of all, from the very bottom of my heart, thank you so much for giving me your time in reading and visiting my blog! You guys are all wonderful.

I started blogging last September 2015 and since then I noticed that my site is getting numerous attentions and increasing visitor counts. This means a lot to me because I have never done any serious blogging in my life until my journey to becoming an Emirates Airline cabin crew took off.

My main reason for putting up this blog is to help. I am not doing this for the sake of becoming popular or whatsoever since I am really not an expert in blogging. I want to inspire people. My wish is for you to look at me and say, “because of you, I didn’t give up.” Weeks before I went to my Assessment Day, I scoured the internet and read every blogs to get more tips and pieces of advice in getting through the selection process. Like a student, I did my homework and came to class prepared. 

Everybody has their own journey and story. Mine was a mix of every cabin crew bloggers’ dreams, and experiences. Those blogs I have checked were a huge part of my success as an applicant. Big thanks to those people who delightfully and generously shared their ideas and own experiences as a cabin crew of Emirates Airline, especially to Lupè Love from the beautiful USA, – who inspired me the most to put up my own blog. And now, I would like to pay it forward. 

Thank You So Much!” – really, these four words are not enough to show how grateful I am to everyone who helped me along the way.

Every day, I am receiving messages from my readers asking for tips, pieces of information, and “thank you” emails. You guys have no idea of how much happiness it brings me every time I see you writing back at me. It really touches my heart knowing that I am able to inspire other people and make them believe that dreams do come true, and yes it really does! Patience and resilience is the key.

It would be my pleasure to help every aspiring Emirates cabin crew applicants because I was once like you. My wish is for everybody to get into Emirates. The whole process was not a walk in the park. I also failed at one point but all I can say is to never give up when you know that your dream is on the line. I wish you guys all the best. Enjoy the process and the journey. Because that is the part where you can actually say that every hardship you endure is all worth it. So ladies and gents, you are also welcome in advance.

Now, I am embarking on a new journey as I will start my Cabin Crew Ab initio training in few days time and I promise to keep this blog running – probably with quick and shorter updates as things might get very busy. I would also like to take this opportunity to promote my Instagram since this is the only social media platform that I am constantly connected with. Please follow me at (@ichikun25). Anyway, I hope you will still continue to drop by and join my adventure in the Land of Emirs and Sheikhs! Once again, thank you from the depths of my heart for reading my blog.
