What makes me a great caregiver/CNA is.. I have empathy and compassion for the people I take care of. I love to see them smile and will go above and beyond to make them feel like they belong and loved. My mother was also a CNA and I'd go see her at work sometimes as a young child and wanted to help all the residents extending their hands out to me for help. And that's when I knew I wanted to help people too. My greatest personal achievement would be that I received 3 diplomas in less than a year. I received my medical assistant and phlebotomy diploma, graduating valedictorian. And I went on to receive my GED all within the year of 2011.
