Hello, my name is Diana. I studied a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology in Xavier University in Bogota, Colombia. Since then, I have worked in different environments with children and youth, of all ages and abilities, showing respect, empathy, and sensitivity to their needs. I have been living in Waterloo Region for almost a year and during this time, I have been working as a Nanny, promoting the proper daily care and safety of a two-year-old child.
My professional career has taught me the ability to stay calm under pressure, it has given me adaptive capacities related to creativity and problem-solving and knowledge about child development and human behaviour.
I have a friendly personality and a gentle attitude. I am an organized and responsible person. I enjoy learning and assimilating other ways of life and mentalities and I am willing to take new challenges. Among my interests and hobbies are: listening to music, watching series, doing crafts and working out.
