At a young age (13), I was introduced to caring for my grandmother, who suffered from a stroke. During that time, I learned the importance of hard work and compassion, and I gained a great love for caring for others with special needs and disabilities. From the time that I was able to work (16), I've held various jobs working for elderly people. I have at least 10 years of experience in this field. My enthusiasm working as a caregiver has embedded in me the desire to become a nurse. I am currently enrolled in school working toward this goal. I have been blessed with the ability to understand the demands and individual needs of each patient that I have worked with, and I am confident that I have the ability to complete any task that is required of me with love and compassion.
