Africa is indeed on the rise as it continues to take up space.
Recently to have done so is a South Sudan woman who was named first female commercial pilot, who goes by the name of Aluel Bol.
According to a post by TTD America’s Transportation Unions, Aluel previously made history as the first South Sudanese woman to become an airline pilot:
“Today, she keeps our country moving by safely transporting passengers on Delta.” Now, the strong woman has made history again as the first female commercial pilot from South Sudan to become a captain at Delta Air Lines in the United State of America.
Aluel was honoured in a Tweet by Adhieu Majok, which read: “South Sudan’s first woman commercial pilot, Aluel Bol, just gained her captain’s wings with Delta. Congratulations!,” she wrote on Twitter.

Thank you for the support… I am forever grateful,” she wrote under the tweet which was posted in her honour by Adhieu.
