Hello Everyone. My name is Christina Walker. I am 26 years old, a mother of two handsome boys, and have been a CNA for three years. Before becoming a CNA I was a caregiver for 5 years. I have always wanted to become a nurse because I generally love to help people! My mother got very sick with Cancer my senior year of high school. I dropped out for a few months to help take care of her and my younger siblings. My mother passed away a day before my 18th birthday. Leaving behind 4 children under the age of 18. I then begin helping my step father take care of them while going back to school and receiving my diploma. Once I graduated high school my step father became ill as well. I then begin taking care of him and having employment through In Home Supportive Services. I had a few long term clients including my step father. My step father died a few years later of a rare blood disease leaving 3 children under 18. I then became guardianship of my siblings. I enrolled in my local adult school CNA class. I graduated at the top of my class receiving a GPA average of 3.82. I received two certificates for Being able to tell the signs of a stroke, as well as Perfect attendance. I love being a CNA and really enjoy working with all types of people. My biggest highlight of being a CNA is knowing that I am helping someone in need from as small as helping them with ADL's or with anything they made need. I thank you for the time you have taken reading about me !
