I am a second year nursing student at Ara. I love working with children as I grew up babysitting our family friend’s kids. I was born in the Philippines but I grew up here in Christchurch. I am caring, kind and cheerful.
I have been helping to look after children since I was around 10 years old. I do not have any formal training and have not had any ‘work’ experience with children but I can confidently change a nappy and will happily hang out with a 6 year old. I am an only child so for as long as I can remember, I have wanted little brothers or sisters and to look after kids. I think having the opportunity to look after kids is very rewarding because we can learn so much from their carefree and fun loving nature. They teach us just as much as we teach them.
