I'm currently a junior in college studying occupational studies and technologies with certificates in therapeutic recreation and autism spectrum disorders. I one day hope to be an occupational therapist for kids with disabilities. I'm originally from Illinois but I stay here during school breaks (minus holidays) and the summer. In highschool, I helped run a sports camp for children aged 4-12. I played sports, gave a snack, and supervised swimming at this camp. From there, I moved to summer camps for individuals with disabilities. I swam, played games, made crafts, ate, went on fields with children/teenagers aged 4-21 at these camps. I also babysat a 7 year old with autism, a 12 year old with autism, and a 13 year old with down syndrome (all individually babysat). While away at school, I worked at a daycare in the infant/toddler room. I worked with 2 months to 2 year olds. My Read more duties included feeding, diaper changing, playing, crafting, and cleaning. I love my job because kids are very entertaining to me. Their energy and imagination are something I love to watch and keep up with. I’m good at my job because I’ve only work with kids since I was 14 years old and it’s become my passion.
