As I sat on my study table that evening, mom called me and told me about my sister's interview.
Yes it was about emilia-the youngest among 3 of us. She has this dream you see-to be an air stewardess.
She is a very high spirited person(all of us are), though she is not very good academically, but she is a person who works really hard and i think the kindest of us all.
After finishing her form 5 in a vocasional school(learning bout IT), she voiced out her desire to become what she always wanted, to be an air stewardess. I dont know why, but she seems to prefer Malaysia Airlines.
Mom said she needed to further till Pre-university or atleast get a diploma. Yet she refused. She said she rather work than going for another year with books.
She loves being beautiful, she likes to groom. While my twin(Emily) is with her books and the television, me with my computer games, Emilia will go and play with my mom's makeup. She gets scolded all the time when my mom noticed that her make up is finishing too fast.
Since the age of 11, she used to participate in beauty pageant during Harvest Festival at my village. She used to get prizes for her beauty, but not brains(lol). Hope she is not upset reading this. hehehe.
Her climax was in the year 2013, before she went to KL, she decided to participate in District's Beauty Pageant. Mom was not confident you know.. seeing the other contestants. All were tall and really beautiful. You know... the skinny legs and body shaped like violin..
Emilia was like "I believe that I am beautiful, mom. I have your looks and I promised I will that this is my last participation. No more after this."
Mom was stunned. Emilia did organized her sentence really well.
However, she didnt make it to finals. She was just too short compared to the others. lol.
After that, she tried in a walk-in interview in Promenade Hotel in Kota Kinabalu for Malaysia Airlines. Suprisingly, she got to the final stage. She passed all 6 stages and finally made it to the final one. She was really suitable and they would have hired her if not for one reason alone... She was still under aged. She was like persuading those people telling them that her birthday was just within that week, yet she was rejected.
I know she had that potential.
Hence I googled out a private academy that trains people and opening chances for them to their airline dream. Since this is what she wanted, she gladly accept the plan. Then she was sent to KL for that academy. She went through various interview while she was there but still she was with no luck.
She took part-time job to cover up expenses and I am really amazed with her being so independent. She finally graduated after 6 months of training.
Today she went for a walk-in interview again with MAS. This time it was in Kelana Jaya(if im not mistaken). She was really excited and nervous at that time. The details were...
600 candidate, only few will be selected. 9am till 6pm.
I was like "What??!!"
She made it to the final stage, again, this time she was prepared.
Sadly, she didnt get the place.
"They checked my grooming for three times and asked a lot of questions. I couldn't help but to think that they are trying really hard to find my mistake"
"I was not chosen because, I had small pimple behind my back."
That is what she told me. She came home tired, a bit sad.
All I can tell her is that, "You will get your prize next time. Be motivated, there is always next time."
Don't get demotivated my sister, I will see you serving customer on a plane sometime soon.
