Ms. Megan P.

Birthday: March 5

Hometown: Asheville, NC

Favorite Crayola color: Shamrock

Background: Recently I spent this past summer backpacking through Europe volunteering for various organizations. One of the organizations "Angolfalu" is an English immersion, sleep away camp, for Hungarian children. I spent several weeks working alongside kids (ages 5-16) to help improve their English. The summer before that I worked at a sleep-away camp in North Carolina for 3 months taking children to their daily activities outside and working together as a cabin unit of 11-12-year-old girls. Between summer vacations, I worked the past two years for a babysitting service in Jacksonville, Florida. I have experience sitting for numerous children of all ages ranging from less than a year to 16 years old. Having children in my life and working alongside them is something I'm very passionate about and hope to always have the privilege of doing.

Future plans: I would like to go to Graduate school,  then hopefully one day run a non-profit helping less fortunate children obtain proper education and healthcare. 

When she's not babysitting: You can always catch me studying at the library, traveling, hanging out with friends, or visiting my friends and family in either Jacksonville or up in North Carolina.
