Born in a family of 8 as most african family I started caring for my younger brother and sisters while I was too young since my mother was often exhausted and couldn't cope with all the workload of her family by her own. My grand mother who was already in her 80's was also living with us and my preference when it came to caring for was her. She was so weak and needed good car in a daily basis. It was my favorite moments, during the times I had to help her to have a bath and assist her to eat with the patience needed whilst .I knew and so decided to work with elderly people , that it is definitely my world!! I like caring because naturally I've always. Liked saying nice things and sharing compliments with others, being considerate, kind and respectful in all actions as well as always lending a helping hand to those around me and being the person others can count on.
