In 2003, life took Maria to Dubai, where she took up a post as a flight attendant at Emirates Airlines. She enjoyed life as cabin crew and her work took her to exciting cities all over the world. In April 2005, she took a fateful flight to the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka. Maria witnessed extreme poverty in the slums of Bangladesh, which was made even more obvious in comparison to the life of luxury enjoyed by many in Dubai.
