Looking for an eager helper?

Hello!

My name is Crystal and I'm looking to gain experience in child and animal care. Why? Well, as I've been exploring new opportunities lately, I've realized that out of all the kids I teach, spaces I take care of, and animals I meet, I hardly get to maintain any personal connection I create with any of them given my age. My live gets incredibly busy, but I still want to be able to make the most out of tasks that don't feel like hard work the whole time; ones that I can have fun in. I have a flexible schedule during summer and other breaks, so what's listed on my profile may be different from how much time I have to do my favorite thing---Help others!
