I do not have any experience in being a caregiver per say. However I was a medical assistant for 5 years working with children and I often help take care of my grandmother who is wheel chair bound. I have always had an interest in being a caregiver iv'e always felt like it is in my nature, a part of me. I feel like at some point in our life we will all need help and I would love to be someones help right now while I am able. If I can make life a little easier for someone that would make me very happy! I worked in a convalescent home when I was younger not as a caretaker but I interacted with the resi dents a lot and I loved it. I am a very caring nurturing person I wanted to do nursing but instead got my BA in Psychology. In the future I do want to get my masters in nursing specifically be a Nurse Practitioner. I am proud of being the first in my family to get a degree. Something about myself, I like to travel when I can. I want to see as much of the world as possible. ... more
