Nicole R. - June 2014
Flight Attendant / Mesa Airlines (United Airlines/US Airways carrier)

"Attending The Travel Academy was a dream come true. This school taught me so much about everything in the travel industry such as cruise lines, flight attendant, geography, Sabre, and travel agent. The mock open house and interview questions really helped me for the real deal with different companies. I learned a lot about being a professional. Before coming to this school, I was not even close to looking or acting professional. I know I have matured and grown a lot from coming here. My family and friends have seen a totally different side of me. I'm more confident and happier than ever before. I would have never thought I could be this close to my dream. Thank you, Travel Academy!"
