Why I want to become a pilot:  

I want to be a pilot because I have found a career that I absolutely love. Being in the air is an amazing experience; from looking down at how beautifully green the earth is, to soaring towards the horizon. The experience is amazing! I think it's safe for me to say that I have found my passion in life and I know where I belong - off into the wild blue yonder! 

Flying also challenges me because every day is a new obstacle. It is truly an adrenaline rush and having the responsibility to fly must be respected. It’s a blessing to have this opportunity so I can accomplish my dream.  

Hobbies and Interests: 

I enjoy hanging out with my family, friends, watching sports and all things aviation.
