Hi! My name is Halie, I'm 21 years old. I became a caregiver to take care of my grandfather that was not able to be by him self anymore. I cared for him for many years until he passed away. I love the thought of helping people with things they may not be able to do anymore without a little help. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is seeing the big smile on someone's face when I help them accomplish something they thought they couldn't do. It's the greatest feeling in the world. My best personal acheivment that makes me proud is, I worked with an autistic boy at one point and he was terrified of stairs because he had fallen and gotten seriously hurt. I worked with him everyday to get him to the steps, some days went great other days he was not having it. I worked with him for months until finally he trusted me enough to get down those stairs. After that he went down the steps everyday. I was so proud of not only myself but also of him. He did an amazing job!
