My Chinese name is 晓岚。I come from Poland.I was a camp counselor 3 times for about 10 days. I was taking care for children aged 6-15. The kids were older and independant so my job was just to keep an eye on them on trips, in the hotel, also play with them and organize their free time.
I am an Ukraine girl I have been taking care of my younger cousins (4 and 6 year old) for a few hours from time to time. Many my family friends also have kids of different age, so I often play with them on various holidays and celebrations or when I visit them . Besides, I have a younger brother, even there is only 1,5-year age difference, I've been always looking after him, especially when he was little.
I am Canadian, but I am born in China. I wish I could go to China, During several years, I have been a babysitter, I kept the children in my neighborhood. This summer, I was an animator in a summer camp with a group of children between 4 and 5 years old. And recently, I began to help two students in a primary school every Friday in their homework
