Gabby's First Scholarship Essay
I got set up with my flight instructor! He seems like a very awesome person and I can't wait to begin my flight training with him. It all starts Monday, June 4th, at 11:00am, and I have never been more excited! I have a lot to learn about aviation and I'm going to make the best out of this opportunity. I have my flight kit and my class 3 medical certificate on hand already. I'm going to study hard and put to practice what I learn. I am very thankful Mrs. Meeks and the Girls With Wings organization for allowing me to receive this scholarship to help make my dreams come true! My dreams have now come to face reality! I will proudly pass on what i learn to other girls, especially my age. I will tell them that as long as you try your best and never give up, your dreams will come true eventually. Also, it'll be good to keep in mind that you're never to old to get your pilot's license!
[update] Its going great! I really enjoyed my first lesson. I learned a lot about the plane. I learned about the instruments, and how to stay at a certain altitude. It was great!
