If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
I took care of my nieces (Emily 6 years, Sophia 4 years) throughout the quarantine for the virus, before the virtual classes are planned, we used to play all over the house, we always found something to do, for example, play hide and seek, prepare cakes, make breakfast, take a bath in the yard, clean the house, we played with their dolls and always at night we watched a barbie movie, then virtual classes came, my role was to wake them up, comb them and while brushing their teeth (Emily) I used to make breakfast, Sophia had classes an hour later which gave me time to have breakfast with Emily, I stayed with them until they finished their classes, for anything they do not understand or could not copy.
After that, we used to rest an hour before doing homework, we ate ice cream, we loved it, while they did their homework I prepared a small snack, until my sister prepared lunch, on free days, we used to go to the park nearby from the house and it was everything for us, we had a lot of fun all that time, until I had to return for my studies, that year of quarantine was the best, we are a good team together, sometimes they come to visit me.
In that little time, we always take advantage of it by doing many things and having fun.

If you have any other areas of knowledge or skills, please describe them below:
Due to my nursing career, I know how everything works in the body anatomically and physiologically, and I give nursing care if needed, in my second semester, I will learn to inject and maybe take blood samples.
I have a lot of patience to teach, I like to explain things that they don't understand dynamically or relate them to objects. I like to walk and enjoy the surroundings and I enjoy it more when I'm with children because they always have something to ask. It's very fun and pleasant to observe the curiosity of children about everything because they learn more and more and you're part of that learning.

I'm good at following recipes for cakes or food, it's a hobby that I develop during my quarantine with my nieces, I like it because you teach them that they can also help and enjoy the moment and that they know how to develop greater skills, the objective is to assimilate the tasks or obligations as something funny and do not feel it or do it in a bad mood.

Please describe your hobbies
My hobbies are:
Swimming because I have always dedicated myself to doing that sport and it is the one I like the most apart from basketball, it is a good sport or exercise because all the muscles of the body are activated and I usually practice it on weekends.
During the week sometimes I exercise at home or go to the gym because I don't like people to see me exercising, and I go to the gym when I am accompanied, apart from exercising at home it does not give the same results as going to the gym at the gym where you apply weight and resistance
I love walking, seeing the city, the landscapes, the people, I consider it a good distraction and hobby that is why I prefer to walk or ride a bicycle than to take the bus, I enjoy it a lot and getting to know new places is extremely fun because when you are in a place again, you are aware of where you have to return. I am a very active and curious person.
Sometimes I usually have cravings, and I usually prepare cakes or cooking recipes and I like to do this more when I am listening to music and dancing while I bake or prepare the other ingredients, it is an activity that I also like to do accompanied, usually I used to do it with my nieces and my sister.
I am always surrounded by people, I rarely like to be alone, I like to read people, see their actions, their physical and linguistic gestures, I like to spend time with people who are warm and who do not make any problems, they are fun and in a good mood.
You can only send a massage to Laura Dennisse if you are interested in this applicant (see above).
