So I’m afraid it isn’t only a hilarious pun on my new job but more a metaphor.
For a start, it implies there’s obstacles to overcome. I didn’t just wake up feeling ready to take on the world. It’s taken me a long time to get to where I am today and I want to explain what that was and how I got here.
Secondly, I finally feel that things are taking off in my life. For a start my confidence is the highest it’s ever been. Standing on a stage in front of hundreds of people telling my story finally let it hit home how much I’ve changed. I’m a new person and for the first time in my life I feel free. I feel I can explore the world but most importantly I can explore myself. I can work out who I am as a person and I can thrive on that.
Thirdly, It’s about all the opportunities that are coming my way. Miss London has opened so many doors for me. I can’t wait to see what happens in the future. All these new opportunities and (flight) paths have come my way and I’m going to embrace them all and fly away with them.
And finally with my new job I am literally about to fly. Travel the world, see places I’d never normally go to. If the last few months have taught me anything is that the world is so much bigger than we can ever imagine. I am a tiny dot in a bigger picture. But that doesn’t mean millions of dots can’t make a picture. I want my life to become that picture around the world. I want to influence other girls to excel to reach their goals and the peaks of their lives. And together WE can fly!
