If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
I remember an experience with one of the children in my internship, His name is Juan Diego and at that moment He had like 7 years old. He was a withdrawn child and aggressive with his partners. It was difficult doing the workshops with him because he lived in a complicated context. But the team didn´t give up on him, we talked a lot with him, and we created activities of his interest slowly with the support of his mom He started to play with the other children and participate more.
To tell you more about this experience, the first three days of the weekend, my colleagues and me went to the neighborhood where the children live with a new activity; this had to be playful, but the most important thing was that the workshop left a lesson for their lives. Some of the games we implemented were with plasticine, painting, drawing, or some game we invented where we had to run or move; in the end, we always socialized what we had learned.
My second experience was similar to the first, with the exception that here I supported the teachers to direct the activities, and with my role as a psychologist if any child required it. For example, the teacher prepared the class and helped him lead, sometimes, they let me plan something to do with the children, and I was always available to talk to them if I saw them sad or not wanting to participate.

If you have any other areas of knowledge or skills, please describe them below:
I'm good at listening to others, their problems, or happiness, my friends always come to me for advice. I have done workshops on different topics such as life skills, and memory workshops in different contexts and using different tools like games, crafts, and meeting groups where each member can express themselves and learn something important for their lives. Since I was 12 years old I belong to the communications team of my church, I have handled the camera at different events, either on weekends at church or some event during the week.

Please describe your hobbies
I love to dance and sing, I think that I´m good at these activities but just when I feel confident. One of my favorite places in the church, I enjoy being a volunteer there and many of my friends are from there. I like very much to watch movies or series. I enjoy being at home, with my family and my dogs. However, I also like to go out with my friends to a restaurant, go bowling or do anything fun.
