I started out at the age of 18 wanting to be a career flight attendant. I got my first job at 19 years old as a Customer Service Agent at Westjet where I worked for 18 months. I then applied internally as a flight attendant and got the position. After 6 months I realized I didn't want to be a career flight attendant but didn’t know what else to do. I was then talking to a pilot about how to get a pilot license and heard there was a familiarization flight (also known as Fam-Flight) you could go take with an instructor to see if you liked it. I was hooked instantly as it felt so free.
