A little about me: Nursing children is like my dream work because I can always be with kids. We can share new experiences togethers, have fun together, and grow up together.
After graduating from university, I worked at a Japanese kindergarten for 3 years in Japan and later in Germany for an additional 2 years. Since I encountered many people from different countries I became interested in studying English.
My interest quickly lead me to Australia where I worked as a babysitter staying with my host family. This was a very important experience for me.
Using the skills I learned from my experiences I would like to take good care of the children, so much that they will say “I love Three Stars!!”.
