If you have any other areas of knowledge or skills, please describe them below:
I really like to draw, mainly animals. I also like to do crafts and the truth is I consider myself good at that. I really like painting flower pots, pictures and making crafts with recyclable material. I would very much like to be able to share these types of activities with children as it encourages them to be more expressive of their emotions and personality.

I studied chemistry because it is a science that I love very much. I really like being in the laboratory making mixtures and learning more about them every day, I like to know about the properties of each substance and how they interact with each other. My purpose is to continue studying it when I return from my au pair year.

Please describe your hobbies
I like watching animal documentaries too much since I was a child I have really liked animals and learning from them is one of my interests. Sometimes I like to read, I mainly like Gothic literature, as it adds suspense to the plot and fills me with anticipation about the story I am reading.
I try to go out every Sunday to ride a bicycle or skate around the city, I like to go out with my friends since I like to do these types of activities accompanied.
I really like to cook a variety of foods. I mainly like to prepare desserts. On a monthly basis, I like to go to hamburgers in town. I hope one day to have tasted all the best hamburger restaurants in Bogota.
I hope to share several of these experiences with the host kids. I think it is the best way to interact, get to know each other, and share.
You can only send a massage to Sara Sofia if you are interested in this applicant (see above).
