If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
One of the most challenging experiences I have experienced happened during quarantine. In those months my sisters were on school vacations and no one could have known what would happen to the children's education in the coming years. My mother was not confident that virtual classes would help my sisters learn because they have a hard time concentrating. She then decided to consult with me so that I could be in charge of teaching them to read and write. I ended up agreeing because no one but me in my family could manage to teach them, as they lacked patience and dedication. It was really difficult at first because they both had different learning levels, were easily distracted and bored. With creativity, patience and time I managed to find a way to keep them interested in learning for a longer period of time. I will never forget the day they came running to me and asked me if I wanted them to read me a Princess Sofia story.

Another beautiful and rewarding experience was when my one-year-old nephew Derek took his first steps, my whole family was worried because he did not show interest in walking soon, so I started to hold his hand and walk with him daily. We would play ball and I would try to make him want to play with his little legs. The first few times he didn't want to stand up or he would start crying, then he managed to stand up on his own and clap his hands. Then one morning my sister sent us a video of him walking on his own for the first time. Now when we play ball, he takes it running.

If you have any other areas of knowledge or skills, please describe them below:
I consider organization to be one of my best qualities. I am an organized and proactive person. I think I work much better when everything is in order around me, and if it is not, you have to start there. I am prudent because I firmly believe that we all have a responsibility to be prudent. I am very communicative. For me, communication is everything, it really makes life easier. I am respectful, and I am good at adapting to changes. I also have the ability to teach others what I am good at.

My greatest ability in terms of sports is swimming, I enjoy it so much and I'm very good with that. Preparing nutritious breakfasts is one of the culinary activities in which I stand out, I enjoy it much more if I share it with the children. Also, I am quite good at making monthly purchases in my home, looking to save as much as possible. I attribute this to my university studies in economics.

Please describe your hobbies
I like nature, so in my spare time I spend my free time taking care of my plants or planting new ones if I have enough space. I love to read, so I always try to download books on my cell phone, to read whenever I can. For me life is better with some music, every time I do housework, ride the bus or walk down the street I have my headphones on. Who loves music also loves to sing, so I sing whenever I can, I have been told I have a nice voice. I take good care of my health so I try to always take out at least four hours a week to do some exercise, play volleyball with my family and swim if I have the opportunity.
