I became a caregiver because of my compassion for people and my propensity to always be helpful. The health of our community is a direct reflection of the health care provided in hospitals, by doctors and by personal caregivers. I have always had the desire to be a part of a solution that would improveme the healthcare field. What I like most about being a caregiver is the smile I can put on a patients face and the fact that I save lives and help people everyday. I also love the diversity in the nursing field. One of my greatest personal achievements is being accepted into the most competitive nursing program in Florida at FAMU University. Last but not least, something I would like to share about myself is that I am a very creative person. I often use my creativity to make comfortable enviroments for my patients. I have also been called an excellent listener and advice giver which in my opinion is essential when dealing with others.
