 Umer Tariq – TAS  Scholarship

Umer Tariq

Most recently I worked as an Aircraft Fueler at Menzies Aviation -  Pearson Intl Airport, Toronto, Canada. Previously worked at Air Canada as a Ramp Agent.

My dream of becoming a pilot had to be abandoned owing to financial difficulties by my family. However, as the famous saying goes, if one follows something from the core of one's heart the universe conspires in one's favor. But in the bat of an eyelash, it all started making sense when I was offered my first part-time job at Air Canada as a ramp agent. Having always been mesmerized by the well-oiled machine which is the aviation industry, I found a way to my passion via a profession, for which I am greatly thankful.
