Congratulations, Walid! #UberDriverLove
At Uber, we love to give drivers hugs. They are our partners, friends, and are essential to bringing you the special experience that only Uber can deliver.
Uber partners with limo companies to allow them to operate their businesses more efficiently. Walid’s company has partnered with Uber since the summer of 2012. He recently graduated from nursing school and sent us this note to share with the Uber community:
“Thank you Uber for providing the opportunity to have a job with flexible hours and good pay. Thanks to you guys, I was able to go to school and work hard on weekends. Special thanks to Kenny and Emily [driver operations managers].
This is a picture of me taken a few weeks ago during my graduation ceremony from nursing school. I am proud to be an Uber partner.”
Congratulations to Walid! We wish you all the best as you continue your career in nursing. We know we’d be in good hands if we ever needed your care.
Tweet #UberDriverLove to say congratulations to Walid or to give a shoutout to all of our hardworking partners who make Uber great every day.
