I decided to become a caregiver upon taking care of my uncle and my aunt who were in a hospital that showed little to no compassion. I love being a caregiver because some people have no family members or friends that show as much compassion as I do. Some people need the care and love from an outsider to show them that living is n option. My personal achievement that I am proud of is the fact that I attended nursing classes which I was very afraid of doing because I did not want to get close to anyone. I love to see smiles on other faces just knowing that I made someone day and made them feel loved and genuinely cared for brings joy to y heart.
