Pearl HicksBeauty is in the eyes if the beholder life’s challenges and how to deal with them can add to your beauty or take away. Life in the road is a challenge and I’ve trained other women that it’s not always easy but in the end nothing is. I became a driver to help my family. Shortly afterward my home life fell apart. It’s OK for a man to work away from home, but women … It’s not accepted. I’ve had to struggle to keep positive and trust me it’s not easy. Two beautiful children, divorce and the adversity of being in a “man’s world.”

I’ve heard give up and go home so much. What people didn’t know was I didn’t have a home. Struggling to start over has not been easy but the goal is worth it all. I’ve leased to own, trained, teamed and solo.

I now own my truck lease on to a company. I love my career and embrace the challenges. The best part is taking my children out and them seeing other drivers and females out and telling me “Look mom we never knew so many women were drivers.” It’s the pride to know I’m working and blessed to be doing so and raising my kids to know we all can do anything just have to stay the course and want it as we want to breathe.”
