I have 5 siblings and among those 5, I am the oldest sibling. Ever since I was little, I was always kind of an independent child. I would walk home . 5 miles from school in the second grade on my own, or learn how to cook and take care of myself at night time when my parents are at work and even help take care of my siblings in the daytime when my parents are too tired. Those things never bothered me really. It was my normal as a child and if I had the opportunity to go back and actually have a carefree childhood, I don't think I would take it. I feel as if being that little independent, responsible kid taught me many things. It taught me patience, caring, tolerance, responsibility, independence, sympathy, nurture, etc.. I grew up to love children so much, yearning the day where I can have a family of my own to take care of. When I saw my first Care. com commercial back in 2012, I was 11 and I knew that was something I always wanted to tryout. I'm now 19 and can finally start.
