Life in a bustling city like Lagos can be challenging at times. You have to be of some sort of special breed to survive in this city. With numerous daily demands and responsibilities, it’s essential to have resources and support to help navigate the ups and downs of city life.
Ire from Shuttlers linked up with Teniola to find out how this period has been for her.
POV - Facing cash scarcity issues, fuel queues, etcetera etcetera.
Continue reading to see how their conversation went!
Ire: Hi Teniola, do you want to tell us a little bit about yourself
Teni: My name is Teni. I am a customer success associate at Haze Group. I am a fun, spontaneous, resilient, and adaptable person. I enjoy long walks and sweating it out at the gym
Ire: Ouuu, fellow gym rat! Happy to see that you’re resilient and adaptable. It means that the current happenings have nothing on you, yes?
Teni: hahaha, well, I have found a way to make things work for me as usual. With transportation to work though, I didn’t have to do much, as I have never bothered paying with cash for my rides. You already know Shuttlers supports those that are cashless with other payment methods. But, I do miss being able to buy suya down my street during my walks whenever I want. Now, I have to be extra calculative.
Ire: I can surely relate to the suya bit. But this too shall pass. How’s the fuel thing affecting you too?
Teni: Luckily for me, my estate doesn’t allow for individual generators, so all we have to do is send money to the estate managers and they sort it out. Then with transport, since I found Shuttlers, I haven’t had to think about fuel. My baby brother has even taken my car hostage. So he’s the one dealing with fuel, not me.
Ire: How perfect! You should truly receive the Soft Queen crown because I’m not seeing stress in your path. What skills do you think are important to surviving in Lagos?
Teni: Money management first, becauseeeeee, in this Lagos, every 5 minutes you hear, “savings or current”. Also, street-smartness has to be a skill, if not, they will “lost” you in this Lagos.
Ire: You had me at “they will lost you”. Thank God I am your favourite transport buddy. I cannot be lost! What tool/company/solution/application/software/ is helping you this period?
Ire: Flowers duly received! If you had a superpower, what will it be?
Teni: Has to be teleportation.
Ire: Wow Teni! You don’t want to be using Shuttlers again
Teni: Will you people carry me to Greece and back in time for my 3. p.m meeting
Ire: You’re oddly specific with the time, haha. Don’t worry, it’s in the works. How are you saving the world with your role?
Teni: As a customer support associate, my goal is to leave each customer happier than when I met them. With every happy customer, the world is a better place.
Ire: No truer words have ever been spoken. I thoroughly enjoyed my conversation with you today, Teni. I look forward to chatting with you again. Let’s make it happen.
Teni: We definitely should! Thank you so much for having me. You guys keep up the good work and those in-app notifications you send. I love getting them.
Ire: Sure! Cheers!
