Empathetic Caregiver And Lover Of Life-long Learning
I am passionate about caring for the elderly because of the kindness and wisdom (among other things) that this population can teach me. My four grandparents have taught me things that I will carry with me forever. For example, I learned to love adventure and explore nature because of my Nana. My Papa regularly reminds me that it is good to be the first to talk, because you never know when you can make a new friend. Grandma is reflective and generous, extremely in-tuned to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren's needs. Grandpa instilled in me a love of Germany, the country of my ancestors, and he inspired me to visit some of the places from his stories this summer. I studied neuroscience during my undergraduate career and recognize the importance of companionship, respect, and a sense of purpose that the elderly population desires, and I hope to provide compassionate, engaging companionship to those I care for.
