In this episode, I chat with Jesenia of @pmddwarriors on Instagram. She gives some insight on Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, also known as PMDD. This has to do with a woman's menstrual cycle. "In short terms, it's PMS on steriods." This episode was really insightful for me. I'd never heard of PMDD before. It is interesting and could be the answer for many women that struggle more than normal when it comes to your menstrual cycle.

Ariel Roderick There is a flight attended school that you have to attend. I believe you have to do that before you can apply for any positions. Once you pass the schooling, you can apply for flight attendant positions. :)

Great job ladies! Thank you for being real. Could I just ask if you could check the distance of your friends to the microphone. She was very hard to hear without my volume turned to the max. Jourdan you are easily heard. Thank you.
