I remember a few years back missing a flight on the second leg returning home from a business off site. I couldn’t understand how a quick pit stop to the restroom caused the gates of doom to close down upon me. The urgency for me was getting home to my son. For the next eight hours, I spent my time with upset passengers, such as myself, trying to make the best of the moment. We were on an emotional roller coaster, as we received endless text messages announcing every hour that our flight was delayed. Finally, we were re-routed to another gate as we awaited the arrival of an incoming flight to transport us home. At last!
It was in this moment that I then understood the delay and the reward in enduring this eventful day. As we started to board the flight, I had the opportunity to briefly sit with none other than American Hip Hop and Reggaeton recording artist, Noriega. As I spoke with one half of the East Coast hip hop duo Capone-N-Noriega, I was humbled to bear witness to his calm and laid back demeanor. It was in this moment that I found my purpose on getting to know the person, not the celebrity.
