Hello! For the last eight years I have spent a lot of time working with children in various ways. I have been a babysitter for many families throughout high school and college. I have also worked as a summer camp leader, working with children ages 3-13 for three years. I have volunteered as a camp leader for an outdoor education camp with fifth graders for two years. During my time as a undergrad at UCSB, I did a year-long internship at a private school in Montecito, CA and assisted with art classes for the students in grades K-5. I have also coached 6th grade girl's basketball and volleyball teams (for 2 years). In addition, I worked at a Country Club in Montecito where I assisted with the summer camp program at the pool, working with children ages 6-13. I also worked at a xx shop in Montecito and children were our best customers! In addition, I also have a younger brother (who is now 16) whom I have spent endless amounts of time with- whether babysitting him or playing and hanging out.

My experience caring for children began in high school when I worked as a lifeguard and swim instructor for children as young as 3 years old and up to adults. Teaching swim lessons taught me to have patience, compassion, and most importantly the importance of being responsible for others' loved ones. After I graduated high school, I became a counselor for a day camp for children ages 5 to 15. My tasks as a camp counselor included organizing and implementing group events and activities for the children. Lastly, I have a 3 1/2-year-old nephew who I have spent a lot of time caring for since he was born. I am currently a nursing student at CSU East Bay and am CPR and First Aid certified. I am very passionate about working with children and I strive to be a positive role model in their lives. One way I have shown my passion for children is by participating in charitable or community events that are geared toward helping children.
