Why should this person be nominated
Tywoin is always ready to help his clients and his big heart and kindness is like no other. He is happy to have the opportunity to help people and explains that even a small act of kindness can be monumental to a patient. During his first shift in a convalescent hospital, Tywoin worked with a woman suffering from Alzheimer’s who told him that she likely wouldn’t remember him tomorrow. The following day, the same patient told Tywoin, “I remember you…I don’t remember your name but I remember that you were nice to me.”
Outside of work, Tywoin enjoys anything having to do with computers and even has a diploma in computer drafting. He enjoys editing videos for family and friends and once compiled a video for a football team he played on. Tywoin kindness expands outside of his work, he volunteers many hours in the community distributing meals to the homeless.
An interesting fact about Tywoin is that he has 5 children, including fraternal twin girls.
