On June 18th of last year, I walked into a “business update” meeting that resulted in my redundancy at Emirates. When I first heard this news I was devastated. I felt as though I had given so much of myself to the airline, and that my entire world was crashing down. I didn’t get my last flight… I wasn’t leaving on my own terms…I didn’t have a backup plan…! Yet still, I tried to hold onto hope that in a year’s time things would get better.
