Why I Want To Be A Caregiver

I just attained my CNA certification. I grew up helping with my sister who is physically and mentally disabled. I understand the challenges people who have disabilites face. I take pride in helping people. I am very empathetic and compassionate. I have tried two career paths before this and I never felt I was in the right place. During clinicals for my CNA, I felt like I finally found the path I want to take. I want experience in healthcare (besides taking care of my family), to build my repitoire, and to make money to fund my future goals. I already have student loans and I want to pay off some before I go back to school for my LPN or RN

Why You Should Hire Me

I grew up loving and helping to take care of my sister that has severe Cerebral Palsy and Autism. She has severe behavioral and psychological problems as well. I have been there when she has exceeded goals. I have also been there when she has declined. Watching my family struggle with their own pride and her disabilities gave me much insight. When I was younger, I didn't think I had what it took to go into healthcare like my father. However, the more I've matured, I've realized that healthcare is the only thing I want to do. I am a single mother with a great support system. I just want to take a shot at my dreams.
