#WomenAtWork – A captain
I am a captain.
Flying from one destination to the other,
the best life lessons came from my father and mother.
When studying psychology, I found my passion.
One day like a light fills the heart, I knew I was meant to be in aviation.
A flight school in Florida taught me my lessons
and steered my career into the right direction.
I went up the air first with GoAir
and now in IndiGo, in the cockpit is my chair.
Supportive family and friends are my strength,
with their support I can go any length.
If I take a break from flying, like my mother I will be a teacher,
nothing else but a Simulator Instructor.
There is no substitute for hard work and following our goals,
that’s the thing making happy souls.
I am Akriti Sharan and I am a captain.
Today is edition #9 of #WomenAtWork, a regular photo feature on this blog. If you are interested in participating, please read the inaugural post and join by adding your linky below. I would love to see your take on the tag.
When I was flying to Chennai in July, Akriti was leading us to our destination. Though I was too shy to meet her and say hello, she was friendly enough to share her mail id. Since then, we have been in touch and I am happy to have her on this blog today.
How to link?
- You can only join with a blog post.
- It would be great to see a picture of a woman at work and a few words about her. If you cannot share a picture, you can share a picture of her workspace. With a real picture, I would still be able to call this a photo post.
- Use the linky to add your post.
- Visit others and show some love.
