Liu Miaomiao, a Shenzhen Airlines' stewardess, was named the world's most beautiful stewardess in a competition held in Shenzhen city, South China's Guangdong province, in June 2016.
Liu, born in Xi'an city, Northwest China's Shaanxi province, decided to be a stewardess six years ago.
The three-month orientation training made Liu more aware about her duties. "Besides etiquette training, such as practicing smile by biting the chopsticks, I had to master the dos and don'ts of emergency rescue in case of cabin fire or evacuation, since small mistakes could cause big disasters," said Liu.
After being promoted to chief attendant in 2014, she began to focus more on challenges and difficulties the daily flying presented.
Once a flight from Beijing got delayed as it did not get clearance for takeoff from the air traffic control due to the heavy traffic rush. When Liu and her colleagues tried to explain the reasons to the passengers, who were already angry at the delay, they lost their temper. But Liu calmed them down with her smile. What made Liu happy was that some passengers apologized to her at the end of the flight.
Liu said this job makes her feel proud whenever she thinks that someday she might inspire some boys or girls to become flight attendants when they see her professional look in uniform.
