Anyone who knows how to drive and expertly navigate roads within the vicinity of Metro Manila (and the nearby provinces) can actually apply to be an Uber driver, provided he or she is a professional driver license holder.
If you’re lucky enough, you might be able to encounter a female driver on your commute. Joyce Tadeo has caught the eyes of FHM Philippines and has been touted “one of Manila’s stunning Uber drivers.”
According to them, she is nicknamed JT and is a graduate of BS Psychology. She used to be a medical representative in a pharmaceutical company but got intensely pressured by the business, making her want to quit altogether.
The source cited that one of her guy friends was an Uber driver and he encouraged her to apply as a driver to find herself an alternative source of income.
Tadeo agreed and joined Uber in October 2016. According to her, she regularly plies the roads of Makati, Ortigas, and Bonifacio Global City.
Tadeo claimed that she feels flattered to be one of the few female Uber drivers, with good looks to boot. She said in her interview, “Most of my passengers are really surprised whenever they book me as their driver. I often get compliments and I really appreciate them.”
She continued, “Others even ask for selfies and post my Uber details on social media. Since then, I've gotten used to it. I enjoy the feeling of being liked.”
The source asked her if she has any particular memorable Uber driving experience and Tadeo answered, “When I picked up a couple in a motel. Ha ha! It really felt awkward. I couldn't help but have some naughty thoughts.”
She mentioned that due to her being a female Uber driver, she has learned to know and value the importance of safety.
She cited that she’s ready and prepared in case she encounters a crazy passenger on her shift. “I always have my rosary and pepper spray for protection beside me,” Tadeo said.
Tadeo also attends dressmaking classes in Miriam College during her spare time. She said that she hopes to build a clothing business someday.
Sweet! What do you think of Tadeo? Have you encountered any female Uber drivers? How about female public transport drivers?
