What makes me a great caregiver is that am selfless I would put anyone else besides myself first no matter the situation. I became a caregiver because of my best friend grandma her name was Martha and I met her as a little girl when I became friends with her niece she grew old and had Alzheimer's and my best friend and would take care of her sometimes and in those times I realize that once you get old people stop really caring about you and I felt bad... Remembering moments like those made me want to be a caregiver. I like being a caregiver because I love the look on people's faces after I've helped them out it just warms my heart. I feel like I can give the best care anyone could ask for. A personal achievement I am most proud of was moving out at a young age and just thriving at life it self. I am proud to say I have my life together at just 20 years old.
