I have been babysitting since the age of 12. Outside of babysitting, I was surrounded by children as a teenager and young adult; my mother ran a daycare in our family's home, and I have a sister that is nine years younger than me. While working a full-time, professional job, I have spent many evenings and weekends babysitting for families and my two nephews (ages two and six). I also briefly worked in a childcare facility in my early 20s. I loved the job but left to pursue an internship that was in line with my career goals at the time. I also volunteered in my church's nursery for about two years.
