I became a Caregiver to help give support and interaction for survival and healthy development for the young and old. What I like about caregiving is when I am able to use my personality and skill to assist in providing care and support to families that are in need in the area of helping manage symptoms and side effects, coordinating medical appointments and providing transportation, assisting with meals, helping with housekeeping, and handling insurance and billing issues. My personal achievement that I am proud of is being able to raise four kids and are all academically doing great in their various l evels of education. One is in college and the second will be starting next year. My name is Josephine Addo, and I work as CYPA child development assistant in U.S Army Child, Youth and School Services in fort Belvoir. I was born, raised, and schooled in Accra, Ghana, which is in West Africa. I am presenting taking classes in NOVA. I am married with four children. My hobbies are singing, dancing, reading, as well as, putting smiles on the faces of children. Working with children and their families is one of my greatest passions. I began working with children when I was in high school and I have been in child development care for ten years. I have accomplished my CDA. ... more
