British Airways launched a new Cabin Crew Apprenticeship Scheme and among the successful applicants is Dallas Chapman.
Dallas, who is 46 years old and a mother of four, joined British Airways because of her daughter Molly who is also cabin crew of the same airline.
Read more about their story below.
Daughter Encourages Mother To Become Cabin Crew
Dallas always wanted to be cabin crew but didn’t have the courage to apply until her daughter gave her a little push to pursue her lifelong dream.
“Molly convinced me to apply. She said ‘Mum, there are so many more mature people becoming cabin crew now.’”
A Dream Come True
Now that Dallas has successfully realized her dream she feels so proud every time she puts on the uniform.
“It sounds like a cliché but I’ve always wanted to be cabin crew. I have four children, so I’ve always had to be near home, but now is my time.”
British Airways already has some mother and daughter or mother and son cabin crew duos.
In fact, the airline had an entire flight to Abu Dhabi attended by mothers and their sons or daughters in celebration of Mother’s Day.
Age Is Just A Number
Dallas is a living proof that no matter what your age is, you can still pursue and fulfill your dreams.
“I’m so proud of my mum. She has always wanted to be cabin crew and she is proof that it’s never too late to follow your dreams.”
So to anyone of you who thinks you are too old for something, just simply brush that thought away.
There is no such thing as “too late” if you act on it now.
