Ireti Doyle Shares Inspiring Story About A Successful Female Uber Driver She Met In Lagos

Veteran Nollywood actress, Iretiola Doyle has shared an interesting story of an encounter she had with a successful female Uber driver in Lagos. In her post, the actress said her encounter with the woman inspired her in a way she hadn’t been in a long time.

Sharing a photo of herself and the lady whom she introduced as Ibukunoluwa, the actress said the young woman is only 24-year-old and an undergraduate who has applied herself to her work instead of making excuses or trading her body.

The mum-of-one said, the well-spoken Ibukunoluwa caught her attention and she engaged her in a conversation as they rode to her destination. She found out the lady had lost her mum, and had a rocky relationship with her father.

The actress was that much inspired that she referred to her cab driver as “A Queen”, promising to help make her life easier even after she had paid her double of the cab fare.

She took the opportunity of her encounter with Ibukunoluwa to discourage ‘beggars’ and scammers, saying you attract helpers by being found “hands deep in the work of improving your own life”.

Read her caption below:

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 undergrad student. Her mother has passed, and she doesn’t have much of a relationship with her Dad.

She attends Schl 3 days a week, and on the other days she’s working as an uber driver. 
She bought her car on hire purchase…she hopes to pay it off by Nov 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.
