My name is Zakiyyah. I have been babysitting since I was a young teenager for family and friends of the family. I currently also work with the Children’s Defense Fund Freedom Schools Program where I implement a reading curriculum, foster the love of reading and learning in my scholars and their need to make a difference. This will be my fifth summer with the program and I love it! Working with young people has made my ability to individualize the needs if each person exceptional. This is very important to me because each child is different. I am also able to do this at the various high schools and middle schools where my on campus organizations volunteer. I love working with young people, and although it is not always flawless, the patience, life experience and impact I have gained is incomparable. I am CPR trained and efficiently responsive in a Read more crisis. I would be glad to offer care, compassion and positive leadership to where you and your family needs it most!

Zakiyyah bonded very well with my toddler and was a very kind person. She kept busy with my little one all day long and recognized her needs very well. Very good experience!

Zakiyyah is great! Very responsible and prompt to respond to texts. She takes very good care of my 9 month old little boy even on days he is fussy. It's been a relief to find such a great sitter.
