“i’ve wanted to be a pilot ever since i was a little kid, and i’ve had that passion since i can remember. i was born in nepal but coming to canada when i was 15 helped make my dream come true. i’m the only one in my family who flies (except for my fiancé who is also a pilot), so while they may not quite understand everything i do when i tell them about my job, they still support what i’m doing. my fiancé has been the biggest supporter of my pilot career and is a big motivator for me to be able to pursue this path in aviation.
as a woman in aviation, my advice for young females looking to get into the industry is if you have a passion to do something, go for it. and don't give up, because if you have the passion, the right attitude, and the right support, you will go a very long way. if you have that motivation, keep going and you'll be able to pursue anything you want.
flying for me, it feels like a sanctuary. it's very peaceful up there, it's a bird's eye view that you get to see, and pictures do not do justice to what you get to see with the human eyes. it could be as simple as flying around the grand canyon or flying above the mountains near calgary. it's beautiful. even the sight of our home right here, being able to fly over the cn tower and the view of downtown toronto at night time is an exhilarating feeling and not everybody gets to see that view.”
