1.) I wanted to become a caregiver when I was 13 years old. Working as a front desk clerk in a hospital as a temp for the summer, I had to step in when the nurse' s somehow was not available to help a doctor during a routine exam of an elderly lady. She was able to speak English, and looked terrified and unsure of what was going on. I somehow conveyed to her to disrobe and got her situated for her exam. She clung to me as she went through her appointment. Afterwards, she gave me a long hug and smiled before she put back on her clothes and left. It touched my heart so much and I wanted to be a nurse ever since. 2.) I love helping people. There may be people who have no one to look after them or even just visit them, given that family or friend are scarce. So, if I can bring my education and experience along with love and support to their lives I am glad to do it. 3.) I just recently finished getting my LPN and I am studying to take my boards. 4.) I love to laugh, I think it is the best medicine for any ailment. When I hear a joke and actually get it, It continues to crack me up. I love to be crazy, or spontaneous sometimes. I believe you should take time to be adventurous and smile about something new.
