Foodpanda's First Female Food Delivery Rider Just Shared Her Story And It’s Absolutely Incredible

By Owais Bin Asad | 10 Mar, 2019

International Women’s Day was just two days ago and we saw huge success in the shape of Aurat March. Keeping up with the spirit, we’re gonna take a look at the story of Foodpanda’s first ever female food delivery rider.

Women in Pakistan have to face a lot of opposition when they decide to take any matter into their own hands. Raising their voice for their rights has been a taboo for a long time. The concept of a woman working has long been considered wrong. But slowly, things are changing for the good.

Meet Rubab Jubani – a photography enthusiast and a part-time food delivery rider.

She signed up as a rider to fulfill her love for bikes and to earn for herself and her family. But it wasn’t easy. She says that she had to face a lot of staring and comments from people when they saw her on the road, cutting through traffic.

I can’t even imagine how difficult it must get for her to deal with this on a daily basis. In a country where women are denied fundamental human rights, a woman like Rubab, with her bravery and confidence, has surely had to face a lot of resistance.

Talking about the comments she hears about herself, she said that riding a bike should be normal for girls and it shouldn’t be considered inappropriate at all.

As an independent woman, she wanted to earn for herself and her family while also benefiting from the flexible hours that this job has.

When asked if she liked her job, she said that she likes it a lot and her favorite part was seeing a customer’s smiling face when she delivers the food.

She also said that women in our society should work more and become independent.

Of course, this trickles down to each woman’s choice. You do you.

In the end, she left us all a very powerful message too: “If you have faith in yourself, nothing can come between you and your dreams.”
