"Nesma Ahmed Farag"... is a computer and information engineer, and the first woman to drive a taxi in a local city in the Sharkia Governorate, where she allocated her car and services for women only.
Nesma is proud that she was recently able to provide for the needs of her three children. She is a 34-year-old computer and information college graduate, and despite that, she preferred the profession of a taxi driver over her technology major, for the sake of her children.
Her career began by placing an advertisement on Facebook, with her own phone number, and she wrote in the advertisement, "I decided to work as a taxi driver for women and girls only in the center and city of Derb Negm, who likes to take his daughters or his wife to their destination. I am available to serve you, but I remind you that the service is for women only."
"Nesma" confirmed that this announcement was admired by many residents of the city of Derb Negm, especially those who fear for their daughters and wives to ride with strange men, and the taxi driver was not satisfied with her rare project, but decided to teach girls and women who want to go through the same experience, noting that The number of women who have been taught by her reached 69 women and girls, at Derb Negm Center during the past two months only.
