About Mario

Business ethics I was doing Uber and Lyft beside my regular job, and I have been able to identified when someone need assistance, such as help to get in or out of car. During my driving I meet someone that I pick up from a hospital that i had to get out of my car to push his wheelchair. In less than 2 min, he told me how much help he needed to move around. I knowledge his frustration that he wasn't able to find help to assist him. When I dropped him off, I had to push him to his apartment, and as soon he opened the door, it was obvious his conversation. As Uber and Lyft drivers, we shouldn't exchange information, however, I compromise to ask one of my friends if he can help out. Since my friend wasn't able to help, the same day late at night, I asked him what kind of help he need most, and he told me desperate; all my close is duty, I can't reach into the washer, my caregiver got sick and hasn't return since two weeks. I said, ok. I can help to do that, so right the next day, Sunday morning I was there at 8am. This is a long story that I should write a book about it, but as this one, I had other stories that my instinct as human been comes out without looking for rewards. Therefore I'm broke because money is the last thing I think about it when someone needs my help. Pretty much that is my personal achievement, help others without waiting nothing on return. However, if I don't drive because I spent time helping others, then how i will survive myself, and take care of my family too.

Caregiver

Oct 2023 - Present
As I mentioned before on my other applications. My experience is low, talking about taking care of someone else. I recently became a caregiver for one of my friends that I was helping him any way. I knew I can get pay for it, but I was not able to do this because my time was very reduced by doing Uber and Lyft. After 4 years of driving, I decided to stop because it wasn't worth it any more. My insurance went up, my car has too many mile, and risking my life on the road was not worth at all. My friend was not able to find a caregiver, that when I visit him, he got a messy apartment. Do I started helping him out.
