I want to become a nanny because I enjoy being around children. Ever since I was in fifth grade, I started taking care of my first niece. That soon became me taking care of 3 nieces y the time I was a Sophomore in high school. I always make sure they complete their homework and I help them. Also, i make sure they have something to eat or a snack before dinner. One thing i think is also important is to have a good time with them. Board games and/or a movie with popcorn is a good time for them. Just as I enjoy babysitting, I would love to become a nanny.
