Arci Muñoz is set to enroll in a flying school soon.
She shared this in a recent episode of “We Rise Together,” noting it is her dream to become a pilot.
“‘Yun talaga ang gusto ko ever since. Balak ko rin maging piloto. Actually mag-i-start na ako ng flying school ko sa February or March. Kailangan ko lang talaga maghanap ng medyo mahaba-habang bakanteng schedule kasi matagal ‘yon, matagal ang pag-aaral na ‘yon,” she said.
It is also the main reason why she underwent training as Air Force reservist.
“Actually for me it’s part of my duty and responsibility as a citizen of our country, kaya ko ito ginawa. And I also want to inspire a lot of people, mostly the young generation and the girls, tayong mga kababahaihan na kaya rin natin ang ginagawa ng mga lalaki nating sundalo,” she said.
“So ‘yon ‘yung ipinakita ko habang nagte-training kami. Talagang hindi ako sumuko. May time na talagang lumuluha na ang mata ko sa sobrang hirap pero sabi ko, de kaya ko ‘to. May time na tinatanong ko sarili ko ano ba itong napasok ko pero at the end of the day, it’s the fulfillment na I endured that feat at during the time of pandemic pa na nakapag-training kami sa bundok pero we did follow safety procedures. Pero ibang feeling, there’s a renewed feeling of self-respect na I gained after graduating,” she added.
