Samina pursued a career in social work to make a positive impact on people's lives and contribute to her community. 

Her passion for helping others also inspired her to become a part-time Dasher, delivering essential items to people's doorsteps and bringing a bit of happiness to their lives.

“I'm a social worker. I love people. I love to engage with people. I love to talk to people. I love to help people. Social work and DoorDash are pretty much tied into each other because it's something that's as simple as delivering food to people.”

Flexibility and freedom are also at the core of why Samina chooses to dash in her free time. The ability to set her schedule and be her own boss is something that Samina values.

“I love to be a boss. Being an independent contractor works out for me. I love it because it's flexible, and I can schedule whenever I want.”

Samina finds great joy in making people happy and brightening their day with her work. The straightforward process allows her to focus on what she loves most — bringing a smile to people's faces.

“DoorDash is making it easily accessible to create your own schedule and to be as flexible as possible, so why not keep doing what you love to do?”
