I'm 20 years old, I have 4 years of culinary school. My cousin got me a job taking care of a 92 year old man. With no experience taking the job, I have to say it was the best learning experience anyone could ask for. Not only did I learn how to take care of the gentleman, I learned about him, his family, and his very interesting past. He didn't become a patient of mine he became a friend. That's when I knew I wanted to become a cna I wanted to help a friend. I would like to become a state cop. But in order to do that school is required. I would like to go back to school to achieve my goal as well as make some new friends.
