The reasons I love uber!! I became a first time mother 9 months ago. I was working the 9 to 5 and if it wasn’t for uber I would still be there, not being able to spend time with my little girl. Uber has given me the opportunity to spend time with my first child and earn extra income for my little family and for that I am so grateful!! Thank you so much uber. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s out there!! & thank you to all at Uber.”

I am a proud mother of a little boy named Andrew. Andrew will be 5 on May 18th, and I plan on giving him the birthday party that I’ve always wanted to give! I work full time at a company called Express Scripts. The money I do make all goes to bills and necessities. I’ve tried working two jobs in the past to have extra money but found myself working 7 days a week and not being able to spend quality time with my son. uberX is truly a blessing from God. Not only do I make really good money but I’m also able to choose the hours I work which allows me not to have to take time away from Andrew. It’s perfect and I love it!!! It’s not easy being a single mother, but it’s also not impossible. I love being a mother and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. Now that I am an uberX driver I will be able to give Andrew a great birthday party all by myself. Thank you for allowing me to be apart of your company 🙂 ”
