If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
One of the most beautiful experiences I had taking care of babies is can see their first steps, hearing their first words, teaching them colors, animals, and learning their names is something very special for me.
The innocence of children, the way they understand things is incredible. I remember once that Victoria could already call me Ale, but she heard that others called me Alexandra so one day she just told me “Ale Alexandra” let's go to play. She was telling me like that all day, I'm still laughing at that moment.
When children can speak, everything is a mystery to them. I love that they're asking what is this, what is this used for? Why does it have that color? ... I love that they ask about everything because it is the best way to learn.

I used to play volleyball a long time ago, so when my friends have time, we go out together and play volleyball, it's our favorite sport. I thought my best friend Fabiola to play at school and my friend Fernanda practiced beach volleyball, the three of us had a lot of fun playing
My parents taught me what to say, "Please and thank you" are two magic words that will easily open many of the doors of our lives. Because we all like to be spoken to with respect, ask permission and show appreciation. For this reason, I always taught the children these two magic words.

White (primary)- Need to be accepted and treated with kindness. They are logical, objective, and tolerant of others.
Yellow (secondary)- Need to be noticed and have fun. They love life, social connections, and being positive and spontaneous.

Please describe your hobbies
In my daily routine, I like to keep things clean and organized. I enjoy having quality time with my family, friends, and with my dog too. In addition, I like to discover new things: places, cultures. I usually listen to different musical styles, and I love attending concerts too. My favorite country is South Korea, I hope one day I can travel there and learn their language.
