If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
I have looked after 3 cute kids.
Sometimes I took care of a child for one day due to his mother needs to do some errands.

Some activies that I do with them are: playing outside, picnics on their backyard, reading books, painting and making crafts and playing with their toys.
I have changed a lot of diapers.

When the nap time comes and the kid fall asleep in your arms that feeling is awesome. I love that! I feel proud of myself.

Likewise, I'm going to tell you about one experience. I was taking care of Emiliano, his mother went to do some errands. Emiliano was sleeping, after one hour he woke up crying, he wanted his mom. He didn't stop crying, so I took him for a walk, and he stopped to cry. After that we picked up some fruits from the trees. Finally, we played on his small playground and ate the fruits. He was very happy at the end.

Sometimes I have taken care of kids when the parents had to go out.

I helped my cousins with their homework. Also, when they had tests I helped them to study. I did that almost 1 year.

If you have any other areas of knowledge or skills, please describe them below:
I enjoy making new dessert's recipes. I can learn new techniques and flavors. Likewise, I don't usually make the same recipe twice just when the dessert lack something, flavor or technique error and I want to make it better. My favorite is lemon pie. Also, I paint and draw when I feel inspired. Painting birds is relaxing for me, and it represents freedom, so there are 5 paintings in my room made by me.
My mom taught me how to knit and embroider, but I would like to learn more because I just know the basic.

Please describe your hobbies
Some of my hobbies are: painting, but I am not a good painter, most of my paints and drawings are animals. I am perfectionist, so it is difficult for me to get a perfect work or be able to draw something complex.
Reading is my passion due to I can imagine different worlds. If you have got a problem you can forget about it reading and not worry about a while. I read every night before sleeping, it is relaxing and fun.
I enjoy hiking with my mom. Being surrounded by nature and animals is wonderful. I usually visit National Parks. From time to time I pick up rare stones from the places I go.
I watch series and movies. My favorites are comedy. Every weekend my mom and I choose a movie or a short series to watch.
You can only send a massage to Angie Sofia if you are interested in this applicant (see above).
