And the first few months were seemingly all she dreamed, with the young brunette posting pictures on social media of herself working, and partying with colleagues.
All changed when she fell down steps during training in the red high heels of her Emirates uniform, leaving her with a severely injured back and ankle.
During her time out of action, Ciara revealed that the airline not only ‘covered up’ her accident but also told her that it would likely have an affect on whether she made it through her six-month probation period.
“I was in a back brace and a cast which changed to moonboot for weeks,” Ciara said in a Facebook post
“I was seeing doctors and physiotherapists every 2-3 days to help control and ease the indescribable pain.
“A few weeks after the accident Emirates fired me and told me that my accident was NOT classed as an industrial injury but instead a ‘freak accident’.
“I wasn’t allowed to defend myself or appeal the decision and there are no unions in Dubai that I could turn to for help… I was heartbroken.”
But Ciara, who has since returned home to Perth, claims the airline added insult to injury when they took away her passport and ID and treated her ‘like a criminal’.
Adding to her heartbreak, the former employee told Fairfax media she had been given glowing feedback by her superiors and was ‘really good’ at her job.
Prior to her fall, she had spent months travelling on flights to worldwide destinations such as Paris, Rome, Copenhagen, Santorini and Melbourne.
