I started driving as a way to supplement my income

I began driving a little over 3 years ago while caring for my grandfather at home whom was completely paralyzed. We pulled him out of the Nursing home due to lack of care. I resigned from my job in AZ as a MA & moved to CA to be support to me & my grandmother. I started driving as a way to supplement my income as I worked a limited amount of hours through the county caring for my ill grandfather. I now am working full time, I started full time last year. I am currently a full time student as well working on my generals/ prerequisites to get into the Nursing program. I plan on continuing to drive for Uber while I'm in school. Uber was flexible when caring for my ill grandfather as my grandmother, a family friend & I all rotated shifts as he needed 24/7 around the clock care.
