I became a caregiver because it's basically in my blood. I come from a long line of caregivers. Both of my grandmothers were nurses, and both of my parents are paramedics. I love being able to help others and brighten their day by being a good companion and being someone for them to talk to. A personal achievement that I'm proud of is during my clinicals for my nursing assistant certifcation, the resident that I was assigned was a 94 year old woman who had dementia and didn't speak a word of english - only russian. So that night I went home and taught myself russian in order to be able to communicate wi th her in a way that made her comfortable. She actually passed away during my time with her, but I hope that the couple days we did have she was comfortable with me. A little bit about myself.. I'm 23 years old and have a 2 year old son named Aiden. I was a military wife for 3 years and am recently finding myself having to navigate the waters of single motherhood.
