At age 12, Sherrxicia ‘Rexy’ Rolle, started working with her father, Captain Rex Rolle, a professional pilot and her mother, Shandrice Rolle, an entrepreneur to build their family airline.

Despite being the daughter of the owners of Western Air Limited, one of the most successful Black-owned airlines in the world, Sherrxicia ‘Rexy’ Rolle, did not want to just watch it grow.

According to blackbusiness.com, at that early age, she got involved by helping out with baggage claim and currently, she is the company's vice president of operations and general counsel.

Sherrxicia’s parents equipped her at an early age with the necessary work ethics when she started working as a baggage handler after school until she was given the opportunity to observe airplane inspections.

She later developed an interest in areas where the airline can work on to advance and not long after she completed college, she went back to tackle the issues and found a solution.

Sherrxicia ‘Rexy’ Rolle, discovered the lack of gender diversity in aviation after she observed that most of the executive position are mostly dominated by men while most of the women are often regarded as not qualified for the top jobs.

She was inspired to work harder to break the glass ceiling in the airline industry.

Before she even reached the age of 30, she was already overseeing the expansion of the family's airline and making waves internationally.

Currently, Rexy, who is now also a business and aviation lawyer is the one to be credited on the recent feat of Western Air Limited as the largest Black privately-owned airline in the world.

Meanwhile, a video of a fine old man styled in native kaftan who was gleefully dancing with his daughter at her wedding reception has got many declaring they too are ''in love''.

At least, that is what a female voice in the video said: ''I'm in love right now.'' The video shows the man and the bride in syncopated choreographic moves as though they had rehearsed their dance steps prior to his daughter’s special day.

While details of the groom and bride, date and venue of the beautiful ceremony still remain unclear, the ecstatic old man and his daughter captured the attention of the people at the wedding reception. And they undoubtedly owned the dance floor with their dance moves.
