If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
In the quarantine a give some informative classes about diversity and also painting classes to kids between 4 and 10 years, since we couldn't be together physically, we did video calls. I design a presentation to show them some cultures and differences in language, gastronomy, etc. that we have to respect. Since everything started to calm down in my country, I could reunite with some kids again to play and paint. This experience made me develop new skills to get the attention of kids and to hold them in an activity despite to be in different houses

If you have any other areas of knowledge or skills, please describe them below:
I would like to start saying that a have a very good grammar, in Spanish more than in English of course... I won a scholarship in my university because I had the best verbal reasoning between all of my class (and we were 101 students). Leaving the ostentation behind, I can say that I would teach my host kids a good Spanish. Moreover, I know that I am not the next Picasso, but I think I am very good at painting and drawing. Finally, I want to add that I am a very creative person, not only creating things, but also solving problems and giving advice.

Please describe your hobbies
My main hobbies are painting, either oil, watercolor or pencils; illustrate, digitally in my computer; and reading books, I would like to say these books are educational, but they are fantasy books, although I think reading any kind of book is completely fine and the same. Besides, I can also comb hair and make braids, my friends always ask me to do their hairs, and also, I am very good at crafts.
You can only send a massage to Maria Fernanda if you are interested in this applicant (see above).
