Kara’s Bio

I've been babysitting from a very tender age, as I took care of my siblings, neighbours and outsiders children voluntarily as I never done it as a paid job then but for the love that's endowed in me for children and people on a whole, however, the parents always rewarded me with assistance for my schooling. PLUS, I'm a mother of a very beautiful 15 years old daughter. I have also took care of my grandparents and assisted at elderly homes in various communities where I provided their meals, ensured that they took their medications on time, etc..... ( I just have a very soft spot when it comes to helping people, smiling). I am a spoiler when it comes to children, I spoiled them while teaching them to maintain good behaviour at all times. I'm a very fun-loving individual which always makes kids fall in love with me. It is my passion to care for others as I love to see people happy.
