As an engineer, I never thought I would end up driving for Uber. But when the pandemic hit, I lost my job and needed a way to support myself and my family. That’s when I decided to give Uber a try.At first, I was nervous. I had never driven for a rideshare service before, and I didn’t know what to expect. But as I started picking up passengers, I realized that I was good at it.
I enjoyed meeting new people and hearing their stories, and I was able to make enough money to support myself and my family.Looking back, I realize that I owe my success to my family. They were the ones who encouraged me to try something new and supported me throughout my journey.
When I told them that I was thinking about driving for Uber, they didn’t judge me or tell me that I was making a mistake. Instead, they cheered me on and helped me prepare for my new career.My husband helped me get my car ready for Uber, and my kids encouraged me to keep going even when I was tired or discouraged.
They reminded me that I was doing something important, not just for myself, but for our family.Now, as I look back on my experience as an Uber driver, I am grateful for the lessons I learned and the people I met along the way. But most of all, I am grateful for my family, who supported me every step of the way.
