Other courses
"I have had a strong interest in working with children, since looking after and helping to raise my younger brother. During this time I also did a lot of babysitting and holiday minding for neighbours/family friends. This has lead me to the childcare/nanny career path. My interests over the years have also been with Girl Guides , and in the year 2000 I received the Baden Powell Award-which is the highest achievement in Guiding. This is earned by meeting certain criteria and requires a lot of dedication and the demonstration of good leadership skills.
My current interests are animals, art, design and creative writing. My career objectives are to complete my Diploma this year and then to complete a bachelor of Early Childhood at University."
