Hi there. I'm Chukwako Tanyi, everyone calls me Chu Chu. I'm 22 years old, born and partially raised in Cameroon, central Africa , and I'm studying for my LVN/LPN boards. When I was in school doing my clinical rounds, some of my favorite care were maternity/new born, pediatric (children), and geriatric (elderly) care. I love children and want to be a pediatrician. I choose to be a caregiver because I love the elderly as much as the children. I call all elderly people a walking history book. They have so much knowledge and wisdom to offer. I just wish some people would take their time to sit and listen to their stories. I always learn something each time I spoke to one of the residents at my job. I love music (my favorite genres are country, African, oldies rap/hip hop, and jazz), dancing, reading and working out. When I find a good book, I'll put some country or jazz music and dive right into it, no one can pull me out. When I'm not home with my three year old baby sister I'm out and about. I'm always looking for new places to hike, new stairs to go workout at and new parks to take my sister. I love all animals except for snakes. I AM TERRIFIED OF SNAKES!!
