About Laportia

1.) To be honest I became a CNA do to the fact that I had joined Job Corps and the trade that I was taking up was really long. Therefore, I joined the CNA class without thinking or even knowing that it would be a big part of my life. 2.) I like the fact that I make people feel better about themselves by the little things that I do. it makes me feel good about myself knowing that I helped someone else feel better about themselves. 3.) I Graduating from Job Corps and gaining my GED with my CNA's. It wasn't the biggest achievement of my life but it is the first big step that changed my life around. 4.) Something about myself well I worked in the healthcare field for the last five years. I enjoy working in CNA. I'm 27 years old I don't have any kids and I'm not married I'm from all over Georgia. I believe in treating others the way you would have them to treat you. I'm not prefect but I am a very hard worker I enjoy going to the library in my free time and hanging out at the mall. I'm mostly a free sprit person to the point I'm great with getting to know people and helping people to open up to being able to see their own worth. I love to write sing and explore all kinds of things. I'm a very easy person to fall in love with and I only say that because I feel like I have a million friends all over the east coast.
