Starting at 6 years old, my aunts and uncles started having plenty of children and when I became old enough, around 13, they would all ask me to babysit their children ranging from 7 to newborns! I have grown up taking care of the children in my family and have always loved taking care of them. When I was 14 my grandparents' neighbors hired me to babysit their 3 children, one having special needs. I did that for about a year. Sophomore year of high school I performed service for my school at an elementary school with a class of children with special needs and connected with one child in particular. His grandmother was contacted because he was a very big problem child for the school but was completely calm with me, she wanted my number and I became his brother and his' new nanny for a summer! It was Read more an amazing experience but also tested me. I still think about him all the time because he taught me incredible patience and understanding. Later in high school, summer before my senior year; I was hired to work at a daycare, Whitehall Daycare in Louisville KY. I worked there everyday for about a year and a half and I miss it every single day. I absolutely love working with children, I always have, and that is why when I made the move to Lexington, because I am a sophomore at UK, I knew the only job I would really enjoy on top of my school would be a job working or taking care of children.
