Interview with a Flight Attendant Based in Nigeria
This week we have an interview with a flight attendant based in Nigeria. She is the face behind the YouTube channel Talk With Bliss where she talks all about her love of aviation. I asked her a few questions to learn all about why she loves being a flight attendant. Then find out what it takes for you to follow your aviation dreams as well!
Q: Can you please introduce yourself and what your YouTube channel is about?
My name is Blessing Akinrinola. I am from Nigeria and I currently live in Nigeria. I am a flight attendant and a YouTuber. On my channel @talkwithbliss I talk about everything aviation and I educate people about the aviation world. I love God and I live for him.
Q: What is your favorite travel destination you have flown to while working? Why?
My favorite destination is Saudi Arabia and It’s my favorite because it’s my farthest destination so far.
Q: What are your favorite things about being a flight attendant?
My favorite things about being a flight attendant are the fact that I get paid to see beautiful views, the beautiful sky, waking up in a different city and also sleeping in a different city. I get to explore new places and cultures.
Q: What advice would you give to someone looking to start a career in the aviation industry?
My advice for anyone seeking a career in the aviation industry is not to give up. The aviation world can be tight and enclosed but don’t give up. If you dream it, you can do it.
Q: Is there anything else you’d like to share about your love of aviation?
Another attractive thing about my job is the uniformity. The uniform is beautiful and so, so lovely. Working as a flight attendant affects your normal life too because you have to learn how to be kind to people in general.
