Aziz Unnisa Tayyaba | An air warrior who settled for less
Aziz Unnisa Tayyaba, 40, was studying for her postgraduate degree and working part-time when she saw the advertisement for recruitment of women officers in the air force. She put the newspaper away and wrote her resignation letter. When her boss at the time told her it was only an advertisement and she had a long way to go before actually being selected by the Armed Forces, she told him, “I have to focus on my goal, I don’t want to get distracted by anything else." She managed to get through and has been a “hard-core" air warrior since, so much so that her parasailing exploits were even listed in the Limca Book of Records.
