If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
I had the opportunity to watch the niece of one of my friends growing while I was taking care of her. I was present during some of her "firsts" and even I taught her a few more things. It was a pretty nice and sweet experience, the fact of hearing her babble; seeing her crawling, take her firsts steps; blowing kisses, doing antics. I think that it was a very enriching experience because I learned so many things that I didn't know about the process of growth of a baby.

A special moment for me was when I gave her pasta for the first time. We made such a mess, and her face was cover in pasta sauce. It was so funny and we laugh so hard.

If you have any other areas of knowledge or skills, please describe them below:
The skills that I can stand out of myself are good communication, meal preparation, organization, coordination, and early stimulation.
I consider that communication it's one of the most important because it helps to get a healthy environment, I mean when you have good communication with the people that surround you, it's easier the coexistence and that gives peace to everyone. Also, I think that it relates to organization and coordination, one of my skills.
The meal preps it's also very important and it's one of my favorite skills because I really enjoy doing it. I consider that it's very useful and essential because the feeding, especially in children is very important to their correct general development and also it is related with my career which is Dietetic and nutrition, so it makes too much interesting and entertaining.
Early stimulation it's another important skill because through it we can help the children to develop their abilities and I learned a little about this when I took care of the group of children in 2019

Please describe your hobbies
I have 3 hobbies that I really enjoy, these are drawing or painting, doing some clay art and finally cooking. I started drawing and painting when I was a child and I wouldn't say that I'm a professional, but I have a great time while I'm doing it, and it relaxes me most of the time.
I just started like a year ago with the clay art thing. Honestly, I'm not that good at it, but I'm getting better.
Cooking became my favorite hobby during the quarantine. Nowadays I enjoy it a lot, especially when I cook something new and healthy, well, I also like to cook some things that aren't too healthy at all, but personally, I prefer healthy. It's entertaining, useful, and even it could be funny.
Another thing that I like to do is biking, it makes me feel free and forget about many things, and it also helps me to relax
You can only send a massage to Romina Salome if you are interested in this applicant (see above).
