"I love the Universe, and I love exploring and experiencing it. Whether it be caring for animals, nurturing a garden, or venturing out to forests and lakes, listening to a good old Geography or Physics lecture.. or simply looking up at the stars to discover our Earth's past. But what better way is there to experience such a glorious creation than being in the greatest creation of all.. our Sky!
Since I was a child, I've always looked up towards the sky. My earliest memory is lying impatiently on my Dad's lap in the hustle and bustle of an airport, looking out of the giant windows, watching, searching. I can still remember the strange scent of the building, a mixture of leather and coffee, and the most vast, diverse amount of people than Europe and Australasia collided. Never had I visited a noisier place, which at the same time seemed in itself to create a hollow silence. Yet, I blended in with everyone else. I was just another passenger ready to embrace the skies. Another passenger with no special significance, fading into the background.
It was unfamiliar territory for me. And since then, I've been forever searching for the answer to the question: why do we travel? We travel because life itself is a journey. Although few people stop to consider it. The majority of people I know consider travel a hassle, an inconvenience, a headache. But not me, and especially not when it's air travel. Being in the air is an exhilarating experience, and humans have mastered the skill of flight. I want to be one of those masters, and posses that skill. I want to help people along their journeys, and so help them throughout life. Besides, life isn't about the destination, where you suddenly end up, it's about the journey and the connections and achievements you make along the way.
Thinking about this, I've always considered flying a plane as a metaphor for controlling your life. I see it very similar to taking off against the wind and being in control of something so huge and important, that you simply cannot just give up. I want to be the Captain of my life. If I master the skill of flight, I master my own life. An ambition cannot simply be ignored"
Jennifer you are the Captain of your life and can do anything you want. Flying is the perfect metaphor for life. Keep your dreams alive and one day, you too, will be spreading your wings and soaring to new heights and far off destinations.
Enjoy the Journey!
