In her advice to aspiring cabin crew, she said, “Please, if you are an aspiring Cabin Crew, read this book. Do not dabble into what you don’t know. The role of a Cabin Crew transcends serving coffee onboard and looking all glammed up. Do not take that step if you haven’t read this book please. I am thinking of going for a guidance and counseling course as many of you have turned me into a counselor in addition to what I do. I know how many times some call me crying, some are becoming depressed. I have had to do a lot of talking, encouragement and all that. They had thought that after their course a job would fall automatically on their laps. Nothing is automatic. You have to be ready to pay the price”.
