I've decided to become a caregiver because, when my grandma had become ill I was there to help her get through her struggles and get better. I like being a caregiver because it gives you the opportunity to help someone in need which is something I do daily because I am a mother . What makes me proud is knowing that I am able to make a difference In others lives. As I mentioned before I am a mother which I am very proud of. I went to ncohc in wheeling il for the cna course. I will be returning to further my education because this is the career for me.
