Elsa’s Bio

Hi, I'm Elsa! I am nineteen years old, living in Brevard, NC.

I have babysat on and off throughout the years, ever since I was twelve years old. I am certified in CPR, and took babysitting courses when I was younger. I am extremely, extremely passionate about the well-being and growth of children and adolescents. I have a lot of experience with all ages of children, from infants to 9-11 year olds. I have enjoyed each minute I've spent with every age group of children-I think I get more into our imaginative games, lessons, and crafts than they do!

I have had various volunteer jobs working with children and adolescents with mental and physical disabilities as well, and that has been such a joy in my life. I adore the intricacies of children's personalities, and I revel in the vast opportunities that children have to learn and grow. I love being a facilitator of helping children build strong self-esteem and a deep love for themselves; I have found this very important for child-development.

I work better with girls, as I feel like I can really sense their type of play and their personalities much better than I can with young boys. However, I love working with both girls and boys, and would be open to babysitting both.

Along with my love for and interest in children, I am an active advocate against child abuse. I have done a lot of research and have volunteered with different organizations who specialize in the prevention of child abuse, as well as the treatment necessary for children who have experienced it. I am very passionate about the safety and physical/emotional well-being of children.

I love to do fun, quirky things with kids. I am trustworthy, outgoing, dependable, committed, and hardworking. I have a very solid sense of who I am and what my aspirations are in life. I am not looking for a high paying job right now-just something to help pay rent! I am moving from Brevard to Asheville in either late June or early July. Unfortunately, I will not be open for a job until then.

I have no visible tattoos or piercings, and though I currently smoke cigarettes, I am quitting this week. I am fun-loving, goofy, and just love to do jobs that can help others in some way. I am also an aspiring musician, and love to play songs for and with children!

I will be someone that the family I work for can trust. I hope that this bio was sufficient! I cannot wait to start working in this field!
