I am very outgoing and always have a positive attitude about everything. I wanted to be a caregiver because I help my grandmother all the time before she passed with cancer. I help her get in and out of bed, fixed her food, cleaned for her, and also took her outside whenever she needed fresh air. So watching her not being able to help herself made me want to help her and others. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is sitting with person and hearing them give me advice about school. I enjoy drinking coffee and having little snacks with them. I want them to feel as if they have someone besides family even if they don't have family. My personal achievement is to make my clients happy and to make them feel loved.
