If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
Well, one of my experiences was from 2015 to 2018 I help one of my very good friends with his kid while she was working. I was studying. We click for the very first time, we went to the park, and there was a show for kids and have a great time! I help him with school, homework, reading, and playing. Another recent experience is with Pascuala, I take care of her in the pandemic while her mother was working. We read together, play inside the home, do homework, between others.
Also, I live with my nephew since he was 6 years old, now he has 14 years old. We get along really well, going out, going to the park, exercising, making crafts, puzzles, playing video games and board games, playing with the pets, and others.

If you have any other areas of knowledge or skills, please describe them below:
Some of my skills are that I'm a proactive person, creative, I'm very organized, independent, honest, and in my opinion, one of my greatest strengths, is that I'm a problem-solving person, in every aspect of my life.
I think my biggest knowledge of all is that I've learned 4 languages: Chinese, French, English, and Spanish. I really like knowing something new and is not too difficult for me.

Please describe your hobbies
I like to knit. I have knitted many scarves for my pets and for my friends, I really like to make and to give something I made with my own hands as a present and I like to teach how to knit too
I like to paint with oil, draw and create things, I'm a really artistic person. That's why I'm used to going to museums and art galleries, or cultural events that involve art in it, I found that very interesting and fun.
I love to read, any kind of theme but my favorites are fantasy, science fiction, drama and detectives ones.
Some of the things that I like are playing board games with my friends and/or family, I think it is a very fun time to share and to get to know better the people. Also I like to work out, I used to be in a volleyball club and but because of college I had to quit, but I continue to exercise by myself after that, it helps me to clear my head and it's good for my body.
Last but not least, go out with my friends and know new places.
You can only send a massage to Macarena Fernanda if you are interested in this applicant (see above).
