i became a caregiver because there was a time that my mother was hospitalized for a few days and i saw good and bad of being a caregiver. i saw the good that involved being able to help others that could not do it on their own and just being able to be there for them and offer as much as i could, and i saw the bad because in some places they lack professional compassionate caregivers and i saw that in me that i could be caring and also show these people in need that there is people out there that still enjoy helping and beeing able to be there for one another. i am proud that with my hard work i been able to work full time and go to school and became a c.n.a is a small step but you must start at the bottom of the ladder to get to the top. i am a hispanic 22 year old male that puts his heart into everything he does and just think that any one that i am helping is someone very close to me and give them the respect and service that they deserve.
