Full-time hours

I started babysitting when I was ten years old, which is when my baby brother was born. A few years later, I started babysitting for family members, and family friends, and just anyone who needed it. I grew fond of working with children, and being able to help whenever I was needed. I recently returned from a trip in Southeast Asia where I taught English to children in orphanages, and the locals on the street.
