I am the oldest girl in a family with six children and when the kids were young both my parents were away working full time, so I became the primary care giver to my five siblings. In my early teens I was active in my church and would often babysit the young children and run the nursery. Later in my teens I dedicated my entire summer to working at a kids camp as assistant counselor and day camp leader. Later, upon graduating high school I studied to become a certified nursing assistant and planned to work in pediatrics.
