Hi my name is Ricardo and i am 19 years old hispanic I saw your post online and I though I'd give it a shot in applying. Here's a little about me, I am a graduate student of Arnold O Beckman high school and a graduate of Everest College got my diploma in criminal justice and private homeland security. I am now working for a security company full time and part time at the fast food restaurant although I only work once or twice a week but anyways I have many certificates and licenses the main one I think that would interest you is probably the First Aide & CPR AED one, I am well trained and can be a perfect person for your child. I live in the city of Santa Ana born and raised there. I have 3 brothers and one older sister my younger brothers are 5,6 & 15 and i can very well say that I raised them all by myself due to my mother working very hard all the time. I may be a guy but thanks to my mother I can cook, clean, wash, and babysit. At this point I am trying to pay for my school loans but my jobs are not enough so I decided to look for something that I am proficient at and that I enjoy doing and well I found it! I am very good with children of all ages and children love to hang out with and I enjoy being a role model to all of them. My future goal is to one day become a police officer. But anyways there is so much to say and not a lot of battery on my phone. .lol but if you concur and wish to know more about me we can set up an interview any day and I can be reached through my email or cell phone number. Thank you for the time in reading this.

I grew up as the middle child of five children, from a young age I helped my mom out with my two younger siblings. My younger sister who is only a year and nine months younger taught me how to bond with someone who had different younger interests yet still be happy in knowing that I was forming a bond with her. My younger brother is ten years younger and I was his primary babysitter on the weekends and summers, I learned how to change his diaper, make appropriate baby foods, keep him on a sleeping schedule, and learned the proper interactions for an infant. I also babysat all my younger cousins growing up up to 6 at a time sometimes. This helped me learned to cater to different ages' needs and wants. I love children and I feel like they are always teaching us everyday lessons that we grownups have forgotten in the rush of adulthood. I became a mother myself last year and have been raising a thriving and healthy little boy. He brings so much joy to my life and would love to be able to help families with their little ones and I too be able to get a grand experience from bonding and growing with their little ones as well.

My first experience with being a nanny was on a part time basis during the summers where I would be taking care of my newborn cousin, this went on for several years until he grew old enough to attend summer activities or stay alone. I would also be his babysitter during the evenings and weekends during the school years frequently staying overnight when his parents went on trips.
