Meet Claribel

  • Comfortable with pets

Hello! I'm a 20-year-old student at Brown University here in Somerville for the summer, starting June 20th - August 11th. I study English and Film, and I'm taking a summer course at Harvard twice a week. My little brother is 11 years younger than me, so my babysitting experience is from being a pseudo-mom and regular sitter for my own kid brother! He's very sweet, but also prone to tantrums and picky eating. However I've developed a relationship of mutual respect with him, through patience, curiosity, and empathy, and it's been wonderful to witness his growth. Sometimes he'll even eat a piece of broccoli for me, if I'm very convincing. I can drive, cook (if you like Chinese/Taiwanese food I'm your person), and do arts & crafts (I have paint and other art supplies), if any of those are important for you in a caretaker. I love love love working Read more with children, especially as my own creative work centers around imagination, play, and creation (my summer course is on comics and graphic novels), and I hope to bring some playfulness and joy to all my interactions.
