Meet Mohammad, breaking down barriers as a Wolt courier partner
Balancing life, studies, and work, one delivery at a time.
Life in a new country is often challenging for anyone, but even more so for Mohammad N., who moved to Hungary from Pakistan before being able to speak the language.
“The first thing I had to get used to was the cold, but I settled in quickly. The bigger difficulty was the language. Wolt has been a lifesaver for me because I could earn money without speaking Hungarian, while also getting a chance to practice it on the job.”
Mohammad is a biology student at the University of Debrecen who began his journey with Wolt in 2021. Along with the language, getting to know his new city was another obstacle that he was able to overcome as a Wolt courier partner.
“I didn’t know the city well initially, but Wolt’s customer support was really helpful anytime I needed it, and now I’ve got the hang of it. I always try to speak to customers in Hungarian, so my language skills and my knowledge of the area improved at the same time.”
During the academic year, Mohammad works four to five hours a day, mostly in the afternoons and evenings. During breaks and in the summer, he delivers full-time and has no plans to slow down — his sights are set on earning a Master’s degree and beginning a career as a geneticist. For now, he’s thrilled with the positive experiences that he has with Wolt.
“I would say that customers are kind and appreciative about 98 percent of the time. The other two percent, well, I think we all have good days and bad days.”
For Mohammad, Wolt is an integral part of his life in Hungary, offering financial stability, a pathway to breaking down the language barrier, and even access to a built-in social community.
“Wolt partners always greet and speak to each other when we cross paths. Last Christmas, I fell and broke my phone, but another courier partner stopped immediately, contacted the customer support team, and delivered the order I had with me. The team spirit is so great to have.”
