1. I became a caregiver because I care a lot about people in need. I had a grandmother who's health was diminishing because of the Cancer she had, and as much as she helped me throughout life, I felt like it was the least I could do for her. After she passed, I had the opportunity to take care of my fiancé's grandmother which has kidney failure, and helping her has been a joy because I get to connect closer with his family, and I get to make sure that she is taken care of and is able to be happy. 2. I enjoy making her day and making sure she doesn't have a lot to worry or stress about. The connection and the intangible benefits are what drive me. 3. My biggest personal achievement in my own opinion would be earning my cosmetology licence. It was such a long and hard fought dream that I was able to make a reality; right after my high school graduation, a week later I enrolled into beauty school. I made sure that I did everything I needed to do, despite the challenges of different circumstances, and obstacles. 4. I care more for others then myself! When I am with my friends, they always call me the mom in the group.
