I have cared the same two girls for the past six years. I have cared for them since they were both newborns. I encouraged an active and healthy lifestyle. I prefer creating crafts or projects for children to participate in rather than have them watch television or play video games all day long. I also encourage children to participate in the arts, going to galleries, museums, libraries, etc. More importantly, I encourage children to create their own art. I believe this allows children the ability to feel pride in projects they create and in themselves. In addition, I encourage children to be active, to play sports, go to the park and take a picnic, and to be outside. I believe that imaginative play is just as important as physical play for children because it assists in the mental development of the children; it allows the child to think “outside the box”. I believe the reason I have the ability to connect with children so well is because I do not see them as helpless and dependent individuals, but as social, brilliant, and independent tiny humans that have the ability to think for themselves and assist in making decisions that directly impact them. I find that kids are more cooperative and happy when they feel they have a say in what is going on. I feel decision-making is an extremely important skill to learn as a tiny human. It also encourages independence and freethinking, which are invaluable skills as they continue to grow.

I have a deep love for children! Like many others, as a young women I took up babysitting but I didn't stop there! While I was in high school I taught preschool where I was personally responsible for the learning and care of 3 5-year-old children. These children had a large range in knowledge as well as personality! I balanced those differences while making sure they were always learning, I did this by giving those kids my whole heart and everything I have to offer. I volunteer as a counselor at a kids camp, which is a week long camp for foster care children ages 7-11 with the most severe cases of abuse and neglect. This requires 24/7 care from me, and every minute of it is worth it, I love watching these children grow so much in such a short time! I am currently involved in "Eliminating Poverty" a charity that goes to orphanages around the world to teach children skills that will take them far in life. "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach him to fish and you feed him for life." I have spent countless hours caring for children as a volunteer! And every minute has been worth it!
