Shamese Scott Trucking

I grew up all over our country. Born in NYC, and have lived in Los Angeles, Denver, and Chicago, before settling in NJ. Besides truckers looking cool, I have many friends in the trucking industry. They are all very knowledgeable and have taught me a few rules of the road that no one thinks about. I think that this industry is very important to our country; we would not be able to function properly without our truckers delivering America’s goods throughout our country. I would love to be a part of contributing to it. I love the versatility of the field. I have seen and met people from all walks of life. I am an African American woman who raised two sons (now adults), so I don’t have to worry about leaving young children. My fiance is a truck driver, and I am proud to say he met his Million Miles a few months ago. Hoping to do the same!!!
