  About Me
 
Hello,

My name is Amanda and I am 25 years old. I have a diploma in Child and Youth Care and have worked with children for the past 8 years in a number of different settings (nannying, summer day camps, schools, group homes, etc). I love working with children and would love to continue doing that while I also study part time at Camosun College.

I grew up in Calgary but moved to Victoria in Sept of 2015. I have a small dog and love all animals. I would be happy to care for any pets as well. I love to read, go for walks, cook, make crafts, play games (board games and sports). I do flamenco dancing twice a week and am interested in learning other languages. I am currently very involved in the Spanish-speaking community. I am not a fluent speaker yet, but hope to get there someday soon.

I look forward to meeting you :)
