“Since I was 14, I’ve wanted to be a pilot – but it wasn’t until I was 22 that I met my first female pilot. 8 years is too long for a young girl to meet someone that inspires.”
“I love being an Airbus Captain, but it was difficult to achieve without guidance. Abingdon Foundation will change that!”
“Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn’t know that, so it goes on flying anyway.” by Mary Kay Ash
“Always be an advocate of education. Pursue continuous learning opportunities and never miss an opportunity to empower women, help others, and spend time with your family.”
"Research has shown that when girls and women believe they have a fixed amount of intelligence they are more likely to lose confidence and disengage from pursuing careers and hobbies, particularly in STEM fields. Abingdon Foundation works toward changing that mindset."
“I remember when some careers were not options for women. Abingdon helps women make the connections to guide them into their dream career.”
