‘I Want To Be One Of Those Few Women Who Are Pilots,” Young Woman Ultimately Becomes A Pilot After Serving As A Waitress For 12 Years

A 35-year-old Zimbabwean woman named Precious Sibalo has finally become a certified pilot after 12 years of caring for passengers as a flight waitress.

Precious had always wanted to become a pilot ever since she participated in a school trip at an airport. According to her, she realized there were no female pilots at that time and it inspired her even more to pursue a male-dominated career.

“… I saw male pilots and never saw a woman there. I said to myself ‘I want to be one of those few women who are pilots,” she said.

However, her dream to become a pilot suffered a lot of setbacks after she was left to be raised by her grandmother. Her mother gave 𝐛𝐢𝐫𝐭𝐡 to her at the early age of 17 and could not cater for her needs, she left her with her grandmother to look for job in South Africa.

Precious narrated that her mother worked in South Africa as a maid and when she was around 17 years old, she died after an illness. Precious explained further that around the same time that her mother died, she gave 𝐛𝐢𝐫𝐭𝐡 to a 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥 also at the age of 17, just like her mother.

Encountered with two challenges, grieving her mother’s death and also having to care for a 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥, Precious struggled her way to ensure her future was not shattered.

“…by that time I thought my dreams were shattered because I could no longer go to Advanced Level, I could no longer go to university. So, I had to leave my 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥 in Zimbabwe with my grandparents and go to South Africa as well,” she narrated.

Precious moved to South Africa to work as a waitress and a part-time model before moving to Dubai where she also worked as a waitress. After just 3 months in Dubai, she took an opportunity to work at Qatar Airways as a cabin crew member.
