I am an 18 year old soon-to-be high school graduate in June 2024. I have been a peer tutor for all four years of high school, and I am also a senior leader for my school's Air Force Junior ROTC. As part of this Senior Staff, I created engaging group and individual activities for cadets in the summer and throughout the school year. I was also a Python tutor in the summer of 2023, teaching elementary-age children about the coding language Python and giving instruction on small coding projects.

I am also a competitive gymnast for the Rancho Family YMCA. I have been doing gymnastics and staying active since I was three years old, and as a senior on the team, I help my younger teammates frequently, offering corrections and support every day at practice.

I do not have formal babysitting experience, however I have been an older sister for fourteen years, and I have experience taking care of my sister on days where my parents were busy or at work, and on family trips. As a leader figure in my school and on my gymnastics team, I have confidence in my abilities to create engaging activities for children, and I understand how to listen to what kids need and cater to them.
