If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
I gained valuable experience when I was a camp counselor, as I practically lived with 6 groups of 20 girls for 14 days per group. Some of the caring activities I performed with the children were dressing up and combing their hair for different camp activities. When any conflicts or differences arouse among children, I talked to them and solved the issue. In rare occasions and when the issue was very serious, I would go and talk with the camp leaders and solve the issues with them. Most of the days in camp, I would lead the girls to different camp activities and ensured they are safe and having a good time. At night, I would help them get ready for bed, putting on their pajamas, brushing their teeth, and washing their faces. And I would sing to some girls that needed their bedtime song to sleep.
Although not extensive, I have some experience with newborns. I would sometimes help my cousin when he travelled or had evening events and could not take his newborn son with him. So I would go to his house to take care of my nephew for 4-7 hours each time.

If you have any other areas of knowledge or skills, please describe them below:
While being a camp counselor, I gained knowledge of group activities such as capture the flag, chip noodle game, human scavenger, and escape room. Also, I know field activities such as paddle board, canoeing and camp fires. Furthermore, while being a leader in my church, I gained knowledge in social activities and games such as quema-quema, huevo q’ullu, arroz con leche, presi presi, nervioso, (Bolivian social games), etc.
Attending church helped me gain singing, leadership, dancing, drama and choreography skills. I sing in my church music ministry every Sunday while every other week I do dancing with other girls at church. Occasionally, I do dramas and choreography with teenagers and young adults and present them at the service.

Please describe your hobbies
My favorite activity is being outdoors. Either traveling, going hiking, or going on a short walk to the park are exciting activities to me. I enjoy seeing new places as it gives me a sense of fulfillment and happiness.
Nevertheless, when I am at home I love doing hand crafts in my free time. I like making friendship bracelets and beadie buddies for my friends and family. I also like making paper souvenirs and large card board signs for church activities.
When I am at home with family or friends, I enjoy activities such as baking cookies and cakes or watching TV shows and movies. I enjoy the company of others, and these activities bring me joy.
