Being a pilot has been my ambition since i was very young . Having a chance to fly was such an exhilarating experience for me , but what about steering an airplane ? Wow , it would be too exciting !!!
I believe everyone can fly ,and why not me ? I believe as long as we have the spirit, then we can work hard to achieve our dream , and that’s what I am doing . Since I was very young , I have always admired those who have a chance to be up in air in an airplane , but air fare is so expensive ! Thanks to Air Asia , its low air fare gained me a chance to be up in the air . I believe that everyone can fly , as what Air Asia said , and what I want is not just to fly in an airplane as a passenger sitting in a fuselage , but is to fly in an airplane as a pilot ! I believe when there is a dream , there is an opportunity . Every time when I saw an airplane flying in the air on the top of my head , I will start to imagine how the feeling is like if I am in the cockpit now .
Learning that to be a pilot must be excellent in English , Physics , and Maths , I strive hard in those subjects . I entered Science stream since form 4 and that is when I started to exposed myself to Physics . Frankly speaking , I was not good in Physics in my early form 4 , however finally I managed to perform as times went by .Having great enthusiasm in Physics , I put my heart and soul not only in every lesson , but also in every question . I was so fortunate that I had a very responsible teacher during my form 4 and form 5 . She was very willing to help me to solve any problems that I don’t understand and she always gave me courage and confidence to hold on and continually give a try when I stumbled and fell .It was too fortunate for me to have her as my teacher . She was my Physics teacher , and now still she is my teacher in my heart , and she will be my teacher forever in my heart . Not only that she taught me Physics , but she also taught me many other things . Being a senior teacher who have so much loving and caring for her students , she gave me so much courage whenever I failed . Thankfully after so much hard works , I managed to score A1 in Physics in my SPM which I sat on 2007 . I was on cloud nine when I got my result and the first person I would like to send my appreciations to is my teacher . From this , I strongly believe that when we have a dream to fly , then we can fly . Even though through tough times , courage , hardwork , determination , and a lot of love , can give us wings to fly .
Besides that , my father also inspire me a lot in my way to realize my dream . As the station head of Johore in Air Asia , my father Jackson Lee inspired me a lot where I learned more about this career through him . My father gave me a lot of courage in chasing my dream . Moreover , I got a chance to know more about the qualifications and many questions about a pilot .
Apart from that , Air Asia is a rapid growing listed company . AirAsia has been expanding rapidly since 2001, to become an award winning and the largest low cost carrier in Asia. It started on two used Boeing 737 until today it has 72 brand new airbus A320 and flies to over 61 domestic and international destinations with 108 routes, and operates over 400 flights daily from hubs located in Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. It creates the greatest working environment and opportunity .
Last but not least , having a chance to study with Air Asia will help me to solve my financial problem also . Studying pilot need a lot of money and my family is unable to support me to private flying school . Although we are not considered very poor , but to support my education fees is impossible as my parents need to pay for my grandma’s medical fees . My grandma is handicapped and she need to depend on wheelchair in order to move around .My parents always remind us the importance of filial-piety and that’s what they are practicing now . Moreover , my parents want us to be independent and that’s why my parents told me that I need to settle my education fees after I finish my form six . I strongly agree that filial-piety is important and it is good that my parents train me to be independent so that I need to be responsible for all my actions and its consequences .
Finally , I hope that Air Asia can give me a chance to fly with them and to realize my dream . And before I forgot , thanks to Air Asia for holding such a meaningful competition . Thank you !!!
# For your kind information , I am studying in upper six now and I will be taking STPM by the end of 2009.
