Well today was completely unexpected! I was nominated for an award through my company unbeknownst to me. I was nominated for a “Real American Hero” award and won. This is for an incident where a passenger became ill on the flight and we had to use an AED machine and CPR. The gentleman survived after we diverted to get him the proper medical attention that he needed. Then as a crew we continued on to get the remaining passengers to their final destination. I’m humbled by this and honestly those 4 1/2 weeks of training kicked in like never before! We were just doing our job and didn’t expect anything from it! I wear this cap proud as I am a hero! *Crew on the last picture* . . . . #realamericanhero #flightattendant #flightattendentlife #honored #humble #aacrews #aastews #american #doingmyjob #cape #superhero #livingmybestlife
