"After losing my real estate business during the recession I struggled to find a business opportunity where I could excel while helping others like before. Uber has been an amazing opportunity to supplement my income handsomely and allow my wife to go back to college and spend more time with our children. Every day I help tourists find the airport, party goers find their home and locals find their job safely. I Get to meet new people and exchange helpful ideas while making a great income. I know I am very qualified to provide great rides and as an immigrant who grew up in Miami I remember the times when our transportation options were very limited, unpleasant and downright dangerous. I use Uber as a driver and a passenger. Uber continues providing me ever improving technology and it has ushered in the future quite well. We can not take steps back and Uber has to stay. I Love Uber and everything it stands for including being part of the sharing & free market community. I feel so strongly about this that I am ready and able to participate in the legitimization process in any way, including mobilizing my other uber partner friends. #savemyUber
