As usual with our Wednesday routine, we crush on a beautiful, amazing and prosperous woman in the person of Fatima Abba Gwadabe.
Fatima Abba Gwadabe is the youngest first Muslim female commercial pilot in Kano State. She hails from Dambatta Local Government area of Kano. She is just 22 years old. Fatima lives with her parents in Kano. Fatima reached her goal and became a top ranking pilot.
Fatima has completed piloting programs at Mid East Aviation Academy, Jordan. She was among hundreds of students who were sponsored by the Kwankwasiyya government of Kano state to study piloting at the Academy.
Fatima has not only got a unique profession, but has managed to break the cultural barrier by acquiring a higher education which is quite unusual for girls from her area.
Fatima is a degree holder in Computer Science. She graduated with a first class degree in 2012.
Fatima was recently recognized by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) by her inclusion in the prestigious FAA Airmen Certification Database, after successfully completing her program.
With her being the youngest Hausa Fulani female commercial pilot, she has created a name for herself and her family at a very young age.
