Shan Cureton, a mother of three children, has started a transportation service for children living in the greater San Diego area.
The business, known as Kiddie Commute, is the only Black woman-owned transportation company in the state.
YEN.com.gh understands that it is also the only comprehensive service which serves the needs of parents and caregivers and offers safety and reliability.
Cureton, per a report by blacknews.com, revealed that Kiddie Commute was created purely out of a need.
According to her, “I am a busy working mother. At the time, I worked and went to school full time. My youngest son was in Kindergarten, I had another son in middle school, and a daughter in high school. It was challenging picking up my youngest son from class in the middle of the day when I had to work or be in class.”
She added that she had no peace of mind and was uncertain about the safety measures provided by the existing transport service.
Cureton went on that she is excited she had the courage to take the bold step and is conscious of the fact that her family, women and the Black community are watching her business model carefully.
For that reason, she had become a role model and a change-maker and therefore has no choice but to succeed.
