“Windows of opportunities open & close all the time. That’s why it’s important to seize these moments because they’re the keys to altering your present and creating a more positive future.”
* 1st & 2nd Edition of Q’ways Magazine“
Pardon me for not updating my blogsite lately this is my excuse! When I was still new my flying hrs each month were just around 65-80hrs. Lately, I’ve been getting 100 something, this month (October) I have 153 hours flying time!
Another thing that keeps me busy besides from flying & being a homebody was the recently launched Qatar Airways Magazine for the Cabin Crew. I was a part of the magazine committee long before the title has been given. We’re around 12-13 people busy brain-storming new ideas for the next layout, articles & new features from cover to cover. We are given Office duty indicated in our roster from 7-3 pm and it’s being consumed productively.
How did I became a part of the committee? All forms of media has always been close to my heart. Communication Arts is my major, have advertising background because of my mom & sister’s travel agency & general merchandise, exposed to marketing industries because my family is entrepreneur and I got my certificate for OJT (On-the-Job-Training) as Public Relations Trainee in the U.S and became one of the campaign speaker during candidacy of Congresswoman Annie Susano in Quezon City dist II, list goes on.
I was hired as Flight Attendant 2 months after my graduation, so I never had the chance to really apply my chosen field. Q’ways – is such a good opportunity for me to practice what I’ve learned. I’m glad out of many who volunteered I’ve been chosen to be part of the team.

I still enjoy flying but being a part of the print media makes me more fulfilled. I’m enjoying the brain storming, comments, email updates, deadlines, follow ups, re-writes, disapprovals, interviews, photo shoots, editing, pictorial and the pressures because it keeps me busy & occupied. I believed our potentials as a human are limitless therefore we should not just settled for anything we already have but still continue to aim for greater developments for our own satisfaction & for the future!
