Taylor, who has been dreaming of becoming a pilot since she was just four-years-old, was given wings for a day and got an official tour of UPS’ Worldport hub located in Louisville, KY, which can process over 1.6 million packages a day — that’s 115 packages per second — packages which only are only touched by human hands twice while at the facility.
