t took me ages to land an Interview with Captain Roula Hteit, the first and only Lebanese female pilot working for the Middle East Airlines (MEA). Hteit was much
younger than I had expected and it turned out that we were both enrolled at the American University of Beirut in the same year. Hteit is originally from Beirut, yet, she and her family were displaced several times. She lived in the South till her university years where she left for Beirut and attended the American University of Beirut. At AUB, she majored in Mathematics and left university in her senior
year (she still had one semester to graduate) and traveled to Scotland to become a pilot.
