SMILEY, THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT takes young readers and adults on a flight from Atlanta to Orlando, which is filled with rough air, a peanut allergy and safety and common courtesy tips. On this particular flight, there are also two unaccompanied minors, who bravely travel without their parents. SMILEY, THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT teaches airplane safety, inflight etiquette and encourages SMILING. The story is based on a flight in the life of former flight attendant, Sonya Jenkins, an entertainment writer, author, actress and filmmaker.
As a former flight attendant for Delta Air Lines, my travel dreams took off when I discovered the wonders of domestic and international excursions during my 32-year career. Sports charters and Caribbean flights were the highlights of my career, but my most heart-warming flights were charters for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. I also broadened my aviation knowledge when I worked in Corporate Safety and as a social media moderator for Inflight Service. Being a flight attendant taught me discipline, better communication skills, safety, cultural awareness, and people skills that enhanced my personal life as well. Getting dressed in my uniform and sporting my wings helped me to feel a sense of pride and confidence. One of my favorite uniforms during my career as a flight attendant was the red dress from the Richard Tyler Uniform Collection.
My love for children motivated me to write my first children’s book, Smiley, The Flight Attendant, during the 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic. In 2020 I also hung up my wings as a flight attendant, but I determined to still soar to new heights and include children’s projects in my continued creative repertoire.
Thanks, Cori Pankey and Bronx Pankey, the girls who always bring out the mother in me and the kid in me. I dedicate this book to you two, with love and smiles.
