Since I was thirteen I have been a babysitter. I worked with a family who had four kids from when I was thirteen till I was eighteen. For a summer I was basically their day nanny, I worked with them from 8 AM till 4 PM. I loved every minute of it. Since I have been in college, I have worked with kids of all ages and have loved every minute of it. I have worked with one little girl since my freshmen year of college and will work with her till I graduate this upcoming May. I volunteered for two years at a place called the "Friendship House" where I helped kids with their homework and so forth. And almost a year ago I lived in Cap Haitian, Haiti for a month and volunteered at two different orphanages. I worked in a church nursery for about seven months as well. These experiences were not "jobs" to me, they were families and kids I had the oppurtunity to work with and be a part of their lives. Realizing that life is full of stressful events, children need people to care for them and people they can look up to.
