Hi there, my name is Larissa. I am 21 years old and I am currently a Junior at Lake Forest College studying pre-law. I currently hold an associates degree in science. I have two younger siblings, which I have cared for on a consistent basis, for 7 years. They are home-schooled and when my mother would be busy with work, I would take on teaching responsibilities. I worked part-time at a home for the elderly, which I did for four years, my responsibilities include cooking meals, serving residents, interacting with residents, and cleaning. The Spring 2017 semester and over this past summer, I worked as a nanny for three young boys, ages: 2, 6, and 8. These were both amazing experiences; I learned so much as a caregiver. I love working with children and the elderly, it has taught me patience and has helped me gain the ability to understand and explain things from different perspectives. I enjoy outdoor activities, reading, and teaching others. I am also certified in both first aid and CPR.
