I would like to have that same positive impact on someone’s life as well. 3.) A personal achievement that I have is that I am currently a Childcare Provider and I am able me with their to ensure the safety and well being of children while they are in my care. It is rewarding to know that people trust me with their children for extended hours throughout the day and I feel great knowing that I am helping these little people, as they learn and grow to become productive citizens in our society and in our world.
