I feel "Care" is the most lightly taken word. "To care" doesn't just mean to supervise someone physically, it goes beyond that and it takes a very emotional yet strong person to take care of someone else who doesn't just need a shoulder but also a little smile, and loads of fun. That's how I took care of a couple of people, my family and non-family (who eventually became a part of my life). I care about people the way I would expect others to care for me and that makes me a better caregiver. I never took it as a profession until I came to the US and accidentally did a couple of assignments, which made me realize that I am good at it. I am compassionate, have a pleasing personality, an inquisitive mind, a curious soul and blessed with an untiring smiling face. I can be a chatterbox or NOT (depending on the person's mood), can talk on different topics, a very good listener (love listening to the stories and experiences), creatively driven, love cooking (my previous clients can vouch for it :)), a coffee drinker and love weight lifting. I am a learner and never leave any chance to pick up something from others' experiences. I am a content/ digital marketer by profession, a wanderer, a nurturer and learner by nature. In short, I truly care about people and capable of connecting with them at different emotional levels. Last but not least, I come with great recommendations and I am very proud of it :)
