I am a only child and I have been there for my mother going with here to every chemo-therapy and radiation treatment that she has had. I have learned a lot from here going through here challenging moments in here life, and talking to other people that have been going through the same situations as my mother was going through. The reason I enjoy being a care giver is because I like helping people. I know there are some people in life that are not abl e to have their family help them when they get older for whatever the case my be and they need some one their to show them that they care and that they are not alone and to simply bring a smile on their face. My personal achievement that I am proud of was being the first person in my family to graduate from college although I only have my associates degree in animation from El Camino College. I am proud to say that I am going back to school next January at Cal State La to get my B.A Degree in Animation. Over all I am a man that loves my family, I love going to church and love helping people and making a difference in someone's life. ... more
