Behind the Wheel: Meet Blessing

July 20, 2016 / Nigeria

We’re proud of the work we have done in Lagos over the past two years, and are humbled by the large number of partners choosing to join the Uber platform.

We’d like to celebrate and recognize a few of the extraordinary driver-partners who, through their determination, have achieved success, and improved the lives of those around them. These hardworking individuals showcase what Uber Lagos is all about.

Meet blessing, one of our first female driver-partners who has found passion in her work. Find out how she has been able to enjoy hard work and the rewards that come with it.

Why did you decide to partner with Uber?

I actually love driving. So I took a few Uber trips to learn more about the platform and also enquired on if female partners were present on the platform; I was really happy to hear that there were a few! I also needed more income so I signed up immediately.  Through Uber, I am able to earn a living doing what I like. It’s the ideal job for me!

Tell us about your experience driving with Uber.

It’s been a wonderful experience driving for Uber, and I am grateful everyday. The incentives offered by Uber for top partners are very much appreciated. It shows that Uber cares about our loyalty and dedication to the platform.

What’s been the best part of your experience driving with Uber?

Meeting customers has been the best part of my experience, especially being a female driver-partner. Many of my riders are excited when they see it’s a female driver and have said it makes them feel really safe, especially on late night trips. I also get to interact with them about my life as well as theirs and this makes driving with Uber a very interesting experience.

What do you like about driving on the Uber platform?

I love driving with Uber because I can work at anytime that suits me which is all the time! 🙂 I am literally always driving because i love it. I also like the fact that you are rewarded for the effort you put in – the more hours you do, the more income you stand to gain.

I’ll definitely encourage other women to join the platform. I have never felt unsafe and I think having more female partners will bring even more riders to the platform which is a win for us!
