About me

I love art so drawing or making something by hand gives me a lot of joy. I am also passionate about photography, fashion design, and any activity that allows me to express myself through a creative process. Teachers have often been the biggest inspiration in my life. I myself would like to inspire others through sharing my creativity, perhaps by one day teaching art to children. When caring for children I try to encourage them to be creative and have fun with it. I want kids to feel safe with me so they can be creative and freely express themselves. I would like for all children to believe in themselves and be happy. One way to do so can be by creating healthy boundaries and rules as well as praising children for good behavior. For me it is important to be grateful and encourage a child to be polite and compassionate toward others. In my work as a babysitter I believe that mutual communication with parents as well with children is important. I would like to listen and learn from the needs of the family in order to be of good and caring assistance.
