I really feel proud to be a caregiver because, as I said before, I'm helping people to do many things they aren't able to do anymore and they are happy and that's something I enjoy, as a result we become very good friends. When I see how happy they are I'm proud of it. The good part is they are very grateful, because they feel they can count with somebody that helps them to do what they like. Because I treat them right they treat me the same way. So everybody is happy. Well, I'm a mexican lady who studied Architecture in Mexico City (UNAM) long time ago. I left my career because of my daughters (2), now they are 34 and 36, so I have no mor
