23 Year-Old Igbo Girl, Miracle Izuchuwu, Becomes Pilot After Dad Said He'll Jump Off Plane If He Sees Female Pilot

Miracle Izuchuwu, 23-year-old Nigerian born Private Pilot, Commercial Pilot (candidate) and Flight Attendant at American Airlines. She recently joined the elite group of 7% of females and 1% of black female Pilots in the world. (Read More Here).

Hear her story...

"I grew up in a society that did not encourage young girls to dream big, career-wise. 

"In 2019, I had an encounter with an Airline Pilot while working as a customer service rep. He opened my eyes to the possibility of becoming a Pilot. A few weeks later, I went on a discovery flight that sealed it for me..

"I came home that day, called my father, and told him I was considering becoming a professional Pilot.

He said, and I quote: "if he gets on a plane and sees a woman as the Pilot, he would get off the plane". Words cannot explain the pain and confusion I felt. I needed that validation.
What if, in raising children, we focus on ability instead of gender?
In a world that wants us to whisper, I choose to shout."
