Being a pilot has always been considered a work for man. It was a stereotype that even the kids had in their heads. This explains why Anne Divya’s comrades and friends laughed at her when she shared her dream of becoming a pilot.
Anne Divya, a 30-year-old Indian, has always dreamed of flying a plane. Despite the stereotypes and difficulties she encountered during her school career, she never stopped dreaming.
Divya is now recognized as the youngest pilot of Boeing 777. She began her journey in the world of aeronautics to Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Uran Akademy, a flight school in Uttar Pradesh, India.
Although her friends and relatives did not accept her choice of career, she had the support of her father Murahari and her mother Padmini. “My parents gave me confidence. They were always there to guide me towards my goal, “she said.
After graduation, Divya found a job with Air India. She was then sent to Spain for in-depth training. When she returned, she found another job at Boeing, starting with the Boeing 737 before joining the Boeing 777 after another series of training.
Captain Divya is a model for young girls who dream of becoming pilots but are discouraged by stereotypes.
