My name is Dora and I'm currently a Natural science major in the university of Calgary. I'm 18 years of age. I'm from Nigeria, and I recently moved to Canada to further my studies. I come from a family of 4 girls and I’m the second child. I don’t really have a lot of hobbies but I love to cook, listen to music, travel, look after children, go shopping, sing, read and hangout with friends whenever I have the chance. The most important attribute, is to love kids. I love being around children, it's a very great opportunity to learn about them and myself. I'm a very patient and understanding person, and my friends say I act like a mother. I'm always open to learning and working on myself. I love to offer help whenever I can, I can say I'm very philanthropic. I chose childcare as a side hustle, because it’s something I know I'm very good and comfortable with. I’ll also be able to earn money and perfect my skills, if given the chance, in the presence of amazing kids.

I won't say I have professional experience because I’ve never worked officially for people until recently. I’ve mostly babysat for family and friends, but I've always been around kids. I grew up in a fairly large home, so loving kids was a necessity if you wanted to live in peace. I always had visitors come over with their kids, and I would be in charge of them. I also have lots of cousins and family friends with kids. Children are great sources of joy and it makes me feel happy being around them. At the moment, I usually babysit my aunties kids when they’re at work or busy and they range from ages 0-7. I also have family friends that leave their kids with me all the time. I'm very patient with kids and l love them so much because I have younger siblings that I took care of when they were growing up so I basically got used to taking care of children. Also, my aunty just gave birth to a baby boy in February and I’ve been taking care of him so his mum could rest a bit and get back on her feet.

My references
Recommended by Bunmi A.
This reference is my aunty, I worked for her when I moved to Canada. I wasn’t being paid because her kids are my cousins and it really wasn’t necessary. When I moved here, my aunty was pregnant and she was usually at work or resting so I was solely in charge of her 2 daughters, aged 7 and 4 respectively. I was in charge of their meals, homework, play time, naps, and night time. I was also in charge of taking them to the park that was a 5 minute walk from the house. I still babysit her kids when I go to her house. At the moment, there’s been a new addition to the family so I also take care of the baby boy. This was her response when I asked for a reference, “ Dora is very dedicated and hard-working. She is an awesome nanny and carries out her duties well.“
Recommended by Lolade A.
She is my aunty and I was in charge of taking care of her two kids, aged 5 and 2 respectively. I usually took care of kids when I wasn’t in school and when she was busy with work. I was in charge of their bath, meals, play time and dinner. “Dora is patient and kind. She is the right mix of playful and disciplined and is great with children.” This was her response when I asked for reference.
