1) Why did I become a Caregiver because all my life I have always love helping other and it started with my owe family. I was the youngest of eleven children and I watch my nieces and my nephews. I was taught by my mother to treat people the way you want to be treated. 2) What do I like about being a Caregiver, being a Caregiver give me joy and a fulfillment that I can make someone life better and bring happiness. It is rewarding, that I want to show love by doing things that other s maybe cannot do for themselves. 3) What is a personal achievement I am proud of; this just happen within a cou ple of months ago when my mother was in a rehab center and my mother did not remember who I was as the time. She stated to me that god was going to bless me because I showed her love and I didn't know her. 4) I would like to introduce myself and to let you know, I am a Christian. I always treated people the way I want to be treated.. I have worked in healthcare for several years.
