I have always been interested in spending time with older people. I have been around my grandmother my entire life. We do so many things together . I drive her to the stores, take her shopping, and watch movies together. I'm also a nail technician so I enjoy giving my grandmother manicures and pedicures, and sometimes I stay with her for months because we have such an awesome time together. Anything she wants me to do I'm always there and willing to do anything for her to make her happy and to keep a smile on her face. I became an certified nursing assistant in May 2015. After I became an nursing assistant at some point I realized that caring for people was my calling. The importance of being a caregiver is making the elderly feel comfortable, getting to know a lot about he/she, and to always keep a smile on their faces when I come around. On career days in elementary I have always said that I want to become a nurse when I grow up, and to know that I'm officially an nurse assistant has made me feel very proud of myself.
