(Multiple nominations)

William received multiple nominations, including from a client’s family. His dedication and love for his job at such a young age is inspiring, as he cares for the elderly alongside studying for a degree and caring for his Mother who has spinal issues. He covers shifts at the last minute and works long hours at multiple settings due to staff shortages – nothing is too much for him.
