Introduction

Hello

I hope everyone is doing well. My name is Colleen and I am hoping to fulfill my dream of being able to live/work abroad. I am a fun, creative, reliable person with a good work ethic. I have been taking care of children even when I was a child. I had to help take care of my 3 younger brothers starting from the age of 10 years old. I earned a babysitting certificate at the age of 12 to start working for others. I have taken some time to read the complaints on this site and know that there are people who will try to scam another. I just want to state that I am not one of those people. I know that it is difficult to know for sure until after the fact, so it is normal to be apprehensive. I try to be respectful of others and appreciate all the things that I already have. I know that I am blessed with what I have now. I earned a bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice (with a minor in Psychology) in 2004 and began working with teenagers with behavioral problems. When that work was found to be unsatisfactory, I found that working with children/adults with special needs to be very rewarding. I have never been married nor do I have any children even though I am very maternal. I have seen how difficult it can be to raise children on parents and what children face as they get older. I feel that I am better suited for assisting in this process. I have worked with various populations from infants to adults with special needs. I was a live-in nanny a long time ago, worked in others'homes as a play therapist with children diagnosed on autism spectrum and also held a position that allowed me to grow by working with adults that needed assistance in daily living. I have enjoyed being around some of the people that I worked with and really cared about their well-being. I also love animals so to work in a household with a pet is a bonus. I would love to find a position abroad and hope that maybe one day someone will want someone with my qualities and not be bothered by the fact that I am in the U.S. or realize that a "preferred" age doesn't guarantee that a candidate would fit well. I feel that I have a strong work ethic and respectful of others. I participated in a study abroad program in London so living in a different country is not something I am apprehensive about. I embrace meeting new people and experience other cultures. A little more about myself. I grew up the only girl in the middle of 5 brothers. I enjoy music and the arts, photography, dancing,singing, and exploring. I love to paint even though I am not that great at it. I encourage creativity and being "hands-on". I definitely enjoy being around children and watching them grow and learn. While working with children with special needs, I have been blessed to witness a young girl disgnosed with autism start to speak and socialize with others. While I definitely do not mind helping with household chores, I prefer to spend my time interacting with children. I would think that if someone wants a nanny for their children, they would prefer to have the nanny interacting with them. I currently work with children diagnosed on the autism spectrum. I work with their child in the family home following ABA therapy. While I do not have documented proof for the infant care qualification, I have taken care of infants in the past.

Thank you for taking the time to read about me.
