Esenam Nyador : Taxi Driver, A Single Mother With 2 Children Bags A Masters Degree -Photos


The term 'taxi driver' is often associated with men and is not considered a job for a woman. But for Ghanaian born Esenam Nyador, that story is for the gods. 
The 38 year old mother of two and university graduate is best known by her clients as Miss Taxi. She is currently rounding up her Master's Degree in Family Resource Management at the College of Basic and Applied Sciences, University of Ghana. According to her,  after she completed her first degree, she tried her best to find a job but couldn't secure one. She told herself that she'd rather become a taxi driver than stress over the frustration of having to seek for a job as a university graduate. Speaking to journalists, she said: 

"In 2013, I finished my first degree at the University of Ghana. Rather than do the typical thing and send out hundreds of applications in the hope for a job, I decided to start something by myself. I also had a strong entrepreneurial streak. That, paired with a bold personality, made me eager to try out starting something in a traditionally male-dominated industry. Many of my friends accuse me of being a social deviant [laughs]. I chose taxi driving because this is is a very non-traditional thing to do for a woman in Ghana, and I think of my decision as a gender statement. I didn't mind stepping on a few toes to change the status quo."

This is not the first time Trezzy Blog has profiled a female taxi driver. Recall last month, we published the strory of Asakpa Aghogho Susan. A lovely female Abuja graduate who studied Accountancy but was unable to secure a job after graduating. Rather than remain idle, Susan decided to turn her personal car into taxi to make ends meet.

If these women can beat the odds and thrive in the face of unemployment - what's your excuse?
