If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
I took care of my niece Laura Camila since she was around 4 years old, I gave her snacks, we went out to the park, we played, bathed her, etc. We had a great connection and I learned a lot aout her with our time together, to make a connection with children out of my family.
I took care of my nephew Juan David since he was a baby, I changed his diaper, fed him, bathed him, when he grew up I took him to and from the garden, etc. I have been with him all the time, sharing moments and helping him to grow, I wanted to be a good influence and I am trying to teach him to be a really good person with good values.
I have lived with several children, children of friends, neighbors or relatives that I have taken care of them occasionally, I have to think in different activties depending on the children and what they like.

I don't have skates right now but of course I haven't never forget to skate. Some time later I was in an acting academy in which I lasted approximately 6 months, I also left it because First it was very expensive, in addition to this, the Academy was far from my house and my parents worked practically all day, so I had no one to take me there.

Please describe your hobbies
I absolutely love traveling. I've always been a very creative person and fin it relaxing and I take pleasure in listening to music, I never really thought that this was my hobby, but I'm beggining to comprehend that it is. I listen to music every day, when I'm happy, sad, confused, worried, I always listen to music and I really enjoy it. When I was 10 years old my hobbie was acting, I was in an academy called Ara and I used to ride skates, I was in a skating school called fire skate and I still know how to ride roller skates, I never forget that. I stopped doing these activities due to my parents worked almost all the day and they didn't have too much free time.
