My name is Kiara Jocelyn Wallace and at age six I was adopted by Arthur (80 y/o) and Rita(56 y/o) Wallace. Ive had to learn how to care for them and learn about all the things they needed to get by. I enjoyed caring for them because my future goal is to go to school to become a registered nurse and what better experience than hands on learning. I have learned about the importance of blood pressure checking, blood sugar, insulin shots, I have dealt with seizures and diabetic episodes and have handled them with calm. I have learned about different medications and about the importance of taking them on time and on a regular basis. Aside from my experience I am also very caring and patient. Being outgoing and fruitful is in my nature and I always enjoy the work I do.
