My past childcare experience has been amazing. I’m often told that I’m born with a gift. I grew up in a big family. I have four younger siblings that I’ve taken care of since birth and three older siblings that I usually have to care for as well. I volunteer working with kids at my local church. I often babysit younger children. I’m actually interning at Howard University; in which I work with kids and teach them about engineering. Most importantly I love educating children wither that’s teaching them their alphabet or going to the Air and Space Museum. Education has always been very important to me so I love passing down knowledge. I absolutely love working with kids and I wouldn’t trade a job like this for the world.
