Michaela Letley

AWOL

4 years ago I made the decision to leave home and pursue a career in the yachting industry. I first heard about yachting through friends from school who had been doing it for years, with dreams of finding a career path and traveling ,I decided this sounded like the Job for me. I’m on my 5th season in the Mediterranean and I’ve loved every minute of it.
From my first season I’ve had the opportunity of seeing beautiful places, meeting and working with awesome, interesting people from all walks of life and I’ve gotten to learn from some amazing chief stews who were always willing to teach me and share their experience. As a stewardess I enjoy the challenges, fast pace work environment and the great detail we put in to every aspect of our Jobs. I have grown so much as a person since starting this journey , I’m proud of the Job I do ,taking great pride in my work and striving to give the best service to our guest. I love being out at sea, helping out and learning about other departments. I’ve made many friends and great memories and I’m looking forward to making many more.
This year I’ve joined a new boat and I’m excited for the Adventures ahead.
Wishing everyone an amazing 2019 season and I’m honored to be nominated for this award.
