Growing up in a family of five siblings there was always something to do. My younger brother was my tag along and I was always looking after him. My older sister babysat for numerous families in the neighborhood and I always wanted to go with her to help with their kids. As my sister got older, I took over babysitting for all of the families she had been tending. I enjoyed the responsibility of taking care of kids. Once I got into high school, I was offered a job working at a center. My job was the receptionist but working in that environment gave me an opportunity to be around kids that weren't in ideal situations. I learned so much from being around those kids, and well as characteristics from the workers there for handling these kids in a successful manner. Because of scheduling conflicts, I left that job and was hired at a center. It is a developmental facility that works one on one with individuals who are disabled. Our goal was to help them become as independent as possible. I was able to work with numerous different adults and kids whose disabilities ranged from bipolar to mental retardation to ADD to down-syndrome. This was by far the most rewarding experience of my life. As much as I would love to say that every day was a success, it wasn't. It was trying at times but I grew so much during that experience.
