I have known since I was a child that i wanted to work in a job where I could truly help others and that I want to enter the health care industry in some way . I decided to become a caregiver because I would like to help others who don't have the ability to help themselves. Being a caregiver for almost 3 years now, these last 2 years have really helped me in so many ways. i have worked in Nursing Home, Private Duty and Housing. I love what I do in helping each client I've ever worked with. Taking care of sick people that needs my help gives me joy in my heart and it let me know they need people to work with them that care. Getting my High School Diploma despite I was going through a really hard time, I had to drop off school because I had to work to help my family get a place to live so I had to do all my High School works at home , that also gave me the opportunity to go to Nursing Assistant Training Program . At the end of all these I gained a High School Diploma and a Nursing Assistant Certificate. I get along with others very well. This has made me a team player at all jobs I have had.
