Meet Karla

  • Speaks English and Spanish

Hello! I am currently a student at Columbia University in the City of New York and just got home for summer break. I am planning on majoring in Urban Studies and Education and would love to help parents take care of their children and navigating my communication skills with children. As the oldest daughter of two Mexican immigrants, I have learned to become a caregiver since a very young age when helping my mother look after my siblings, and my aunts by looking after my cousins. I do not have official training, but hope to expand my experience and learn for my future plans of becoming an educator! I can help child with learning Spanish and teaching them some Mexican cuisine! I can also talk to children about books that I have read and what it is like to go to Columbia! I also love makeup and would love to Read more have makeover days with children! My hobbies include community organizing, playing soccer, writing poems, and watching Netflix!
