“Funny the thing is that in flight attendant school a teacher told me that I should really get a correcting-contact lens, otherwise I will never get hired with such weird “condition”.”

When I was a little girl my parents were not fully aware of my “special” eyes, but the neighbours thought there was something wrong with me and so they took me to the doctor who just laughed and told them there’s nothing to worry about. Later on, colleagues at school/highschool/university/flight attendant school often told me that i may have lost a contact lens.. joke was on them obviously as I asked them to help me find it! Funny the thing is that in flight attendant school a teacher told me that I should really get a correcting-contact lens, otherwise I will never get hired with such weird “condition”. I’ve been a successful flight attendant ever since, I have been flying for 5 years now and most of the people who notice my eyes find them fascinating ,so it has never been a minus Although I haven’t been able to be a part of your project (yet) I would like to thank you for making heterochromia seem so special in the eyes of everyone!
