Daughter Succeeds Mother As Stewardess

While Ye Kum-hee, the mother, joined Korean Air as a stewardess of the 13th recruiting session in 1971, her daughter, Jun Young-eun, received an official announcement to become a stewardess last week.

Her mother, Ye Kum-hee, recalled the atmosphere of the time when she graduated from Sook-myung University, winning very several competitions necessary to become a stewardess "It was a kind of job that most female undergraduates wanted due to the opportunity to travel abroad."

Her daughter said that "I discovered that taking care of customers in an airplane suits my abilities and, at the same time, my mother's encouragements directd me towards the service area." She went on to say that "I learned from my mother that being a stewardess is far different from what ordinary people believe."

She took the first place in the apprenticeship records among 88 people who had entered the company in the same session.

Her mother suggests that she have confidence in her job, a polite attitude and work to develop her English skills.
