How many women, better yet, Black women can say that they helped to launch an airline? #TeamBeautiful knows at least one and her name is Icema Gibbs.
Icema started as a journalism major at Syracuse University, but ended up in aviation. How does one end up in aviation? After calling one of her professors for advice post graduation, he suggested she go into a career she gets to communicate with people. Who knew that aviation would be that job? Icema says she lucked into aviation and applied for a customer service manager at People Express (an airline that many of us have never heard of) and then went on to Continental.
