My name is Tianna Owusu. I have been volunteering since 2012 at Peaceful Life Assisted Living. My mother was an employee so I would join her on weekends when I didn't have school. We groomed, fed, bathed and other things to keep them taken care of. I also made sure they had fun by playing board games and charades; for the residents that liked the outdoors I took them on walks and strolls through the park. Now that ive graduated in 2015 from high school this has turned into a career . I have my CPR/First Aid and i'm also a Certified Medication Technician (CMT).
