The reason why I became a caregiver was to give back to the community and to help the people who cannot help themselves. The most things I like about being a caregiver is seeing the smile on the faces of the people i effect in a positive way. My proudest achievement is completing and graduating from nursing assistant school in 2011. I personally enjoy working with the elderly mainly because I can relate with them, I also have over 10 years experience working with the elderly. But I most recently I have joined my church's praise team to help raise money for the homeless at Sion Seventh Day Adventist Church.
