Greetings! My name is Vini Souza, I am a 21 year old transfer student coming from Santa Rosa Jr College to UC Santa Cruz this fall. Being a marine biology major, much of my time is dedicated to school so finding a job that is rewarding is quite important to me since it is where I will be spending a chunk of my free time. The retail and delivery jobs I have previously worked at did not make me feel as if I was being productive, so I decided to look for something else yet didn't know exactly what that would be. I then thought about how my mother has always been a nanny, and she had nothing but positive things to say about every child she's worked with. Having been around kids of all ages and understanding the responsibilities my mother had as a nanny, I decided to look Read more for a child care job myself! I began my first job 3 years ago in August of 2014 within 20 minutes of creating a account. I ended up spending 3 years with that family, only leaving because I am now transferring to UCSC this fall. During these three years not only did I become an older brother to the two boys, I also became a third son to their single mother. I have watched the boys grow and have built a strong family bond with all three of them. I now see why my mom has always loved being a nanny! While I have only had one job as a child care provider, I have learned so much in a short three years. I had to become the adult of the house for 6 hours a day, and quickly acclimated to the new role I have been given. I am confident that I will be a very easy going, yet hard working, respectful, responsible, and reliable friend/"manny" as I like to call it for you and your kid(s)!
