Anastasia Babushkina is flying high as she celebrates being crowned Russia’s top flight attendant this week.
Anastasia is a trained economist but she opted for a career in the clouds instead because she felt it would be more interesting.
The 23-year-old said: ‘I was trying to find a job that I would find interesting and rewarding during my third year at university but just could not find one.’
And after opting for sky-high adventure instead, she has not looked back.
Now Anastasia has triumphed over 26 other contestants in a competition that judged beauty as well as aptitude at the job.
