But she turned to truck driving when the income that came from her teaching job could not support her family.
Initially, when she started driving trucks, she earned an annual income of N22 million.
Her income increased to N64 million annually when she started her own company, JC Rankins Transport. Clarissa has said people are always surprised when they see her behind the wheels of her massive truck.
In a chat with CNBC, Clarissa said “People always have this image in their mind of a truck driver being a man with a big old stomach, big old beard, and wearing overalls.
“I love to get that expression on people’s faces like, ‘Can you really drive that?’ And I’m like, ‘Yes, I got this honey.'”
Apart from her truck driving business, she makes an additional N16 million in income from TikTok where she has close to 2 million followers.
