About Kandice

I became a caregiver because I have a passion for helping people. I am a kindhearted person and I hate to see others in hurting in any type of way. It has always been my dream and goal in life to become a nurse. I love being a caregiver because it makes me happy that I can comfort people and make them happy. I don't consider being a caregiver a job or working because I am doing something I love. In 2011 I started nursing school and I am proud of that. I learned a lot in the year I was in school. Although things happened and I did not finish, I will not let that stop me. I will continue and complete my education no matter how long it takes. Something about me is I am a very strong-willed person. If there is something I want, won't stop until I get it. Sometimes things get in the way, but I have faith in God and myself and I know that I can achieve whatever I put my mind to.
