  About Me
 
Hello. My name is Sophie, and I am a 19 year old University student. I have just completed my second year of post-secondary school. I was born here, Victoria BC, and my nationality is half European (British, Irish, French) and half Chinese.

Last summer I had a temporary position for approximately 3 months being a nanny for a family, taking care of two girls ages 3 and 6. I had a lot of fun doing things such as doing crafts, playing with them, planning outings, and going for walks. In addition I was doing light house-keeping jobs that included cleaning, vacuuming, preparing some meals, washing the floors, laundry and washing dishes.

In addition, I have run summer camps two years in a row during high school: Science Venture and Little Spartans; so I am very familiar with what it takes when interacting, teaching, entertaining, playing and looking after children. I am a very creative person and have done many acting/drama classes, and am also a very active individual and have done competitive dance for 14 years, love hiking, swimming, recreational volley-ball and more.

Hopefully you will consider me as a worthy candidate to look after your little one(s). :)
