“At 18 when I graduated, I already knew what I wanted to do and I had already learned to fly, and had encountered any obstacle you could find about not being able to fly. I found out my eyes were weak and I also found out that I had nausea air sickness every time I got off the ground. My first flight, that was devastating to me because I dreamed of nothing else and I decided that I was not going to accept that I could not do what I really wanted to do, and it was to become a pilot.”
