The personal traits that I believe help me be a great caregiver are that I hold certain personal values that I abide by daily. My father was in in-home hospice care at my home and this experience taught me alot including how important it is to find compassionate people to help us go through the toughest times of our lives. I want to be a caregiver because I appreciated those kind nurses that helped my father and I want to do the same for others. A personal achievement that I am most proud of is opening my own small restaurant with no prior experience, I build something from the ground up and with that gave many people work and opportunities. I sold my business to return to college and pursue a Bachelor's Degree.
