If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
During my first experience caring for children I learned that patience is so important, that you have to have a lot of energy to try to match what children have and keep up with them; I understood that in them in particular the best thing was to adapt to their lifestyle and learning and try to use my creativity to invent activities based on the things that they enjoyed the most and to get the effectiveness of that method at the end of the day.
Also with the time and experiences with different children, I understood that every child is like a different world, with different personalities and different ways of acting so my first action will be to know firsthand all the qualities of the child and be able to give my support from my knowledge.
My experience with babies made me grow in the sense of how you develop with them, I had to be much more aware of that little person, learn how to stimulate those important aspects in the growth of a child, and do a lot of research on different learning methods and interactive games.

If you have any other areas of knowledge or skills, please describe them below:
I am very interested in musical composition and writing, in general, I am a very artistic person and my crafts are very good, the creation of writings and poems is something that generates a lot of peace. I get carried away at the moment and enjoy outdoor activities such as camping or visiting a forest; as for sports I am not an expert but I like to play soccer and on weekends go riding a bike.
I have interests apart from cooking, in general, I enjoy a lot of cooking but even more baking, I love the desserts and I love even more to make them and give them to taste the people around me. Photography is a field that calls my attention even if I do not have a professional camera.

Please describe your hobbies
As I am currently studying fashion design, in my free time I like to design and imagine collections that someday I'll make, also as I said before outdoor activities seem fun but also those that are indoors I enjoy them a lot, like watching movies or series, cook something delicious, play board games.
I am also the type of person who likes to go for walks and runnings, attend cultural events such as museums or fairs, I like to travel no matter if it is to nearby places and know the traditions and cultures, eat and taste different typical dishes that I do not know and take a souvenir of that place in a photo.
You can only send a massage to Paula Ariatna if you are interested in this applicant (see above).
