I became a caregiver because I enjoy taking care of people. I took an interest in caring for the elderly my junior year in high school. I became a certified nurse assistant during my senior year of high school. What I like most about being a CNA is the helping the ones who can't help themselves anymore for whatever reason. It brings me joy to put a smile on someones face. One thing I am proud of myself in this line of work is that I can adapt to any patient young, older, and any age in between. One of the my gifts I use to keep my extended families encouraged is my singing. I believe it relaxes them at a time when everyone is looking for relief and also just bonding with the family and being an open ear.
