I’ve always dreamed of being a flight attendant. I’ve always wanted to work on an airplane and travel the world. But my height, and the fact that I had children at an early age, prevented me from pursuing it. I was heartbroken. Now, I’m a housewife. My dreams and plans are a distant memory. But I find happiness in my family because I’m able to see them grow up. As a mother, I will pass my hope to my children and guide them in fulfilling their dreams.
