If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
I've gone to trips as a help to the family with the kids, we've been to pools and camping. I also have a little experience as a group volunteer leader with a foundation of people with economic and family problems. I took the children to field trips and activities that would distract them. I worked there with kids between 10-14 years.

As a certificated hairdresser I do manicure and acrylic Nails even my own when I go to elegant events.

Please describe your hobbies
I really like to watch anime and fantasy movies like Harry Potter which is my favorite saga, reading love stories, those really get me emotional. I keep studying English in any possible way like watching movies audio and sub English any word I don't get I look up the meaning and write it down until it gets stuck in my head. I also love MakeUp and try new trends on myself to see if they fit me and can use it for a special occasion. Recently I got a bike, so I go cycling a lot. I enjoy so much going to the movies, when there is one I like, I always see it as soon as it is released.
