My philosophy on care, as an extremely compassionate person naturally, is to take as equivalent as possible to how i would want someone to take care of me. Being originally from Africa, we were taught patience and compassion all our life. I was attracted to being a caregiver by the fact that it is care that someone needs but it is an act of love, a constant good deed with which one can earn a living.My peers usually lament about how patient, how considerate and how cool, calm and collected i am under any and all circumstances. I deeply care about people and i always make sure i exhibit such.
