    I can't recall when I have aimed to be a pilot.

    It is a very cool job that allows me to travel around the world. Hope that I can successfully enrol in the Cadet Program of Cathay Pacific after finishing the degree.

    Childhood Dream

    I have never flown but ever since I was a kid I wanted to become a pilot. It looks so free to be able to fly here or there. And looks like such a rush. I hope one day to save my money and learn to fly.
