"Most of us have different passions at different stages of our life but it's what we do with those passions that makes a difference."
Against a backdrop of personal hardship, deep prejudice and entrenched gender inequality, Kucki Low made aviation history in 1973 when she became South Africa’s first commercial airline pilot.
During the 1970's, female pilots on any continent were few and far between. Overcoming personal tragedy and limited schooling, "Kucki" von Gerlach attained her private pilot's license in early 1969 at the age of 23, the first woman to do so in Namibia, then called South West Africa. She went on to become the first female commercial airline pilot in South Africa.
"Most people have dreams or goals but don't feel that they have what it takes to achieve them or have the courage to pursue them. I believe we are never given a dream without also having the ability inside of us to achieve it. It would be such a joy for me to inspire your audience to pursue those dreams and trust that they can and that the right people will show up at the perfect time to take them on the next step of their journey. That has certainly been the case for me. I was the most unlikely person to become the first female airline pilot in South Africa, but that didn't stop me from following my passion regardless of obstacles and loving every step of that journey." - Kucki Low
