- A US woman was homeless for eight years
- She also grew up in the US foster home system
- She has achieved success as an Uber driver
In what is an inspirational story, a woman in Chicago, US has overcome eight years of homelessness to achieve success as an Uber driver.
Faith Jones is now set to be honored as a "Queen of Uber" and a "Woman of Excellence" by Chicago Defender's 2017 Women of Excellence on May 4, 2017.
She has become of the most outstanding Uber drivers in Chicago despite growing up in the US foster home system, eating from discarded cans and sleeping under cars at night.
In an interview, Faith says she no longer has to worry about shelter or her bills thanks to a friend who introduced her to the opportunity.
She said: "Uber definitely gives me a sense of confidence. It makes me feel like I’m my own boss. I feel like I’ve succeeded by the end of the week after seeing my earnings."
However, her success has not removed her from her previous experience. She volunteers at homeless shelters and donates to charities.
Her biggest objective, however, is to help other women to get off the streets and support themselves by helping them find jobs.
