This year for Women's month, I've decided to highlight women I admire and who inspire others in the daily walk to be the best version of themselves.

According to Johnson, ""I feel a great sense of responsibility to be a positive role model. There are so few women in this profession and too many women who still don't think of it as a career option," Johnson said. "When I was hired by Northwest Airlines, there were 12 African-American women airline pilots in the country at the major airlines, and I knew all of their names."
Johnson earned qualifications as First Officer on the 727 and the Airbus 320 and served as First Officer on the Boeing 757/767 now with Delta Air Lines before making history a second time in 2016 by becoming Delta air Lines first African-American female captain.
