Flight attendant at Emirates
Karla Bayson, the flight attendant at Emirates, shares her thoughts over her career in the aviation industry and tells what lesson she has learned during 7 years in the airline.
What’s it really like living in the city of the future?
I remember the day I landed in Dubai 7 years ago – one of the most innovative cities in the world. I was amazed at how everything is wider, larger, bigger, and taller. I call it the gigantic city within the desert. Dubai is such a beautiful city – a huge melting pot and land filled with opportunities.
But why did I choose to live in Dubai? The answer is simple…I landed my dream job as a flight attendant for one of the best airlines in the world. It has changed my life in so many ways. As I love exploring, meeting new people, and living life outside of a hotel room. I live for the solitude of long train rides, the rush of taking that perfect photo, hearing the stories of the people I meet along the way.
I’ve learned a lot over the past 7 years of flying. I learned about what truly makes me happy in life, I learned how to connect with all different kinds of people all over the world and learning about their culture.
