On a Facebook post, Jess Labares shares her inspiring story as the first-ever transwoman flight attendant under Cebu pacific.

“Fifty seven days of hardship, tears, laughters and sacrifice,” she says. “Becoming a cabin crew was never a childhood dream. It was more like a challenge, a challenge to myself to know what I’m capable of. To try something new," she added by living her childhood dream.

“As a trans woman, the first post op transgender woman flight attendant in the Philippines. A history has been made. I will forever cherish this opportunity given by Cebu Pacific. I’d like to extend my deepest gratitude to Cebgo and Cebu Pacific for their acceptance,” showing gratitude to Cebu Pacific.

Her achievement is a great milestone for her and also for the whole LGBT+ community.

"I hope this will be an inspiration, not just to the LGBTQ community, but to everyone who dreams and has goals in life to never give up on something you really want. Perseverance, positivity, determination and loving what you are doing are some of the perfect formula to achieve your goal and will definitely lead you the way to success and happiness. Now I can finally say, this is by far the greatest crown I have ever achieved.”

"My family and friends, you are all my inspiration and motivation that keeps me going. To my papa in heaven, I know you are so proud of what I have achieved and for what I have become. Sorry if I was not there beside you when you left. I know you would understand. Thank you and we love you" as she thanked her family for their support and understanding.
