5 yrs of experience

I am 18 years old and currently working at an animal rescue in Roscoe, Illinois. I work Friday-Sunday so I am looking for another job during the week or weekend mornings. As a junior/senior in high school I volunteered at a local library where I read to young children. I love being able to make an impact on other people's lives. It has meant a lot to me that the children I have babysat for, look up to me. I am looking for any opportunities I can to make a positive impact on this world.
