Training College: Graduation Day!

Today is the day I’ve been waiting for ever since I accepted my position with Emirates- Graduation Day! This means that I have successfully completed my probationary period with the airline and am now officially Cabin Crew.

The past six months have been quite the adventure. In November, I made the life-changing decision to follow my heart and move to the business hub of the Middle East- Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

In doing so, I gained some new friends, lost a few friends, learned some hard lessons and have travelled to several countries I never thought I’d ever step foot in. Despite the whirlwind of emotion I experienced, I wouldn’t change a thing!

Life is too short to live with regrets. Although I often wonder what my life would be like if I were back home in Toronto, Ontario, I keep telling myself that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes you must give up the life you planned in order to have the life that is waiting for you. Right now, at this moment, I’m supposed to be here.

Adventure awaits, and I couldn’t be happier.

      Hi Tracy,

      Congratulations to your daughter! Graduation is an exciting time. Dress code for the ceremony from what I can remember is smart casual; this information should be emailed to her shortly. I’m not quite sure about the ticket situation, but she can contact staff travel with any inquiries. Hope that helps!
