I was not sure what I wanted to do when I graduated from high school. What I did know was that I did not want to go back to school for four more years. I love helping people, so my guidance counselor suggested that I look into becoming a home health aide. I researched the position, and I knew that I would probably excel with that line of work. I did have to take enough training in order to receive my certificate so I could become a home health aide, but the schooling was very informal. Because I liked what I was about to do, I actually enjoyed learning about the elderly as well as other types of people I would help.
After I became a certified aide, I was able to join a great team at a local home health agency.
