For the past five years I have been working and volunteering at The Painted Turtle, a SeriousFun Foundation camp for children with chronic illnesses. My time here consisted of a full-time caretaker position for many children with a variety of special needs. I have also volunteered for various after school programs, helping kids with homework and thinking of fun and educational projects. Further, I have worked as a babysitter since I was 13. Also, as one of many sisters, I have grown up learning to get along with a plethora of different personalities! Lastly, I am hoping to attend graduate school for social work to work with young children and families.
