Veteran Nollywood actress, Iretu Doyle has taken to her social media page to share an interesting story of an encounter she had with a female Uber driver in Lagos. The actress who was inspired by how the young female undergraduate is struggling hard to sponsor her education all by herself was impressed by her handwork.
Encouraging other young Nigerians, she talked about legit methods one could use to survive living, and how one do not need to embark on fraudulent ways to make a living.
According to Lindaikejiblog, she wrote ”yesterday I called for an uber, and this is who I got. IBUKUNOLUWA. I was intrigued by her so I spent the ride getting to know her and her back story. Ibukun is 24, very well spoken and a part time undergraduate student”.
”Her mother has passed, and she doesn’t have much of a relationship with her Dad. She attends School, 3 days a week, and on the other days she’s working as an Uber driver. She bought her car on higher purchase. She hopes to pay it off by November after which the car becomes hers”
”She’s had to put up with jeers from her peers, but she’s determined not to let that keep her from attaining her goals. A Queen. I stan. I honestly cannot remember the last time I was so deeply inspired.. See ehn at a point in everyone’s life “my mama no do for me” “my papa no give” me is a lame excuse. What are you doing for yourself?”
”Then, don’t buy into the lie; there are different methods to living this thing called life…It doesn’t have to be fast and furious… Know yourself no be curse…By the time she got me home I doubled the fare and will definitely contribute my widow’s mite towards making her life a little easier.”
”That’s how you attract helpers; not by begging, not by scamming, not by selling yourself cheap, but by being found, hands deep in the work of improving your own life.”
