At AirAsia, everyone here stands an equal chance to chase after their dreams. They have female pilots and aircraft engineers soaring high in this male-dominated field.
As a part of the campaign, the airline authorities have conducted the sessions such as this with over 400 female students, and we are very honoured to be able to work with the Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development to have a special session with the minister herself.
By exposing the girls to successful women from various backgrounds, creating a platform for them to chat and mingle with these inspiring individuals, they hoped the young generations will understand that girls can do anything.
It is a great hope that the girls will take the opportunity to interact with many of the successful women here and make their visit a fruitful one.
It is also important to develop leaderships and courage amongst these young generations, to prepare them to thrive in the future.
