The reason why i became a caregiver was because my mother was a caregiver, when I was younger and whenever I would have gone to work with her I would always love talking a doing activities with the patients. They were able to bring so much life and love into one room that I would beg my mom to let me go to work with her. What I like most about being a caregiver is the one-on-one time I get with each person, learn a lot about what one person have been able to experience and live through, them just being able to go down their memory lane and reminiscence about the things they would do when they were younger. A personal achievement that I am most proud of is when i was able to make the grumpiest of the grumpiest patient I ever been with smile and take a turn to the greater and beautiful things in life. I am a senior in high school and have a great personality, im always on the lookout for someone who is in need of a hug or just some company to talk to.
