The no escaped from tellers

Before-and-after comparisons have the advantage that you can tell stories without words. For example, those of Chezka Garrido from the Philippines. The Before picture: Garrido sits on a pilot seat (after you had asked the pilots permission). She is wearing a Stewardess Uniform and a borrowed Pilotenhut, and is applied to the pilot greeting. On the After picture the today, 30, sits-Year-old back in the Cockpit and has the stretched Hand to the head, but now she is wearing pilot's clothing and your own Pilotenhut.

Seven years between the two images, has loaded Garrido in the social media. In these years, she has pursued a dream: to be a pilot, will fly away from the abominable no-men. This knows Garrido well. With sixteen she was already a mother, Despite every objection they finished the College. She earned a Bachelor's degree and became a nurse. At the same time, she began to work as a Flight Attendant, and met by the way, for pilot training. After seven years, she is now a pilot for Air Asia to fly an Airbus 320.

"The people expected of me, that I'm just a mother. But I wanted to prove to everyone – especially my parents – that I can determine my own fate," says Garrido. With 30, she is now a mother, nurse and pilot. "And I can be so much more."

Despite Duterte: The Philippines

went to the history for your CEO Tony Fernandes has seen the two images and in the social media shared around the world. Garrido has been to the small celebrity. She wants to use. So on her Instagram Account recently: consultant for the promotion of women. Under your Before and after picture, you wrote that you had to ask anyone's permission if she could sit in the Cockpit. And: "isn't it time that someone rents other my Pilotenhut?"

she advocates that women be promoted in the Philippines and more. You Talk, will be invited in radio shows, and recently the Philippines gave her a niche Vice-President under the name of "Istorya ng Pag-asa" (stories of hope) a price.

Garrido comes from a country that is ruled by a macho lout: Rodrigo Duterte. However, the Philippines are also a country that stands for equality. The President's most critical opponents of women as Vice-President Leni Robredo are. In a global Index on gender equality in the Philippines are seven ranks. "The Land of the strong mothers" called it the "time" once. Studies show that boys from their families to be pampered and girls early in the household or business need to take responsibility. Circuit means in the reverse, too: you will trust something. In addition, non-contacts and Cronyism, but performance and commitment in the business, unlike in politics.

apparently also the company Air Asia, the Garrido during the training, financially supported. Today she says: "women are not simply passengers. We are pilots. And we control where our journey goes."
