I became a caregiver because not only am I passionate about caring for others, caring is part of my personality and a way of giving back to the society. The thing I love most about being a caregiver is, listening and just being a ear for someone to lend, and just accompanying them. I'm mostly proud of me becoming a compassionate, dependable young women wanting to help at a young age. I had a daughter whom I had to care for with many health problems and I loved being hands on with her, she passed and that inspired me to care for others as I did for my own flesh and blood.
