"What I love about driving is having the best views right from my 'office' windows. I am able to see and experience so many things that would not be possible had I not made the decision to get my commercial driver’s license."


Ushma had dreams of being a truck driver ever since he was a kid. Having grown up in a family of truck drivers, he would occasionally tag along with his uncle and grandpa on their routes. Years later, Ushma made that childhood dream a reality by attending school at East Arkansas Community College
