My thoughts during the COVID-19 crisis.

Students right now are missing the of joy of exploring the skies. Instructors are bound to work from home and schools are closed amidst empty departure halls, empty jet bridges and empty hearts.

We have all been grounded on our feet, but don’t let anyone pull your head out the sky! Keep dreaming and keep growing. Take the time to practice gratitude for all you’ve learned so far, all you’ve experienced and all you’ve traveled.

Let's take this time to appreciate the strong and influential industry we are all a part of and love, and let’s take this time to admire how far we have all come. But most importantly, let's recognize how much stronger we will come out of this.

I continue to encourage many to pursue your dreams and to prepare to take part in the strongest and most intuitive industry out there. Look at this period as a quick maintenance check... but be ready to take off soon!

I encourage all of you to follow up on your fellow colleagues, support our essential teams, and don't stop fueling your minds.
