Some people become flight attendants. But, truly, Erkan Geldi was born for this kind of work. His mother gave birth to him midair while on a Turkish Airlines flight from Izmir, Turkey to Frankfurt, Germany in 1990. Now he's a steward for that same airline. Road Warrior Voices interviewed Geldi about his career choice:

RWV: What did you study and when did you start as a flight attendant?

EG: I have a bachelor’s diploma in teaching English from Bakılesir University and began work as a flight attendant last year. During the interview process, they asked me why I picked this occupation. I replied that actually the occupation chose me! When my father’s friends came to visit, they would always say, “Hello, little pilot!”
