Babysitting

When babysitting, I am in charge of helping the children with their homework, making sure they complete their 'pre-bed' tasks e.g. cleaning teeth etc and I also need to send the children to bed at the time that the parents have said. In case of an emergency, I am responsible for the children and must secure their safety at all times.

Projects Abroad Morocco

Community Work

For two weeks, I worked to help create a garden for the children at the AMESIP care centre in Sale, near Rabat in Morocco. We dug up the dry, hard ground to plant flowers, built benches and painted the surrounding walls. I also got the chance to spend a few afternoons working with the children and teaching them English through simple playground games. In this experience I gained valuable teamwork skills and the ability to work with people with little motivation to continue working throughout the long and hot afternoons, requiring more encouragement to keep going.

Scuba Junkie

Volunteering/ Marine Conservation

-As a qualified diver, I was able to dive into the depths of the coral reefs to collect litter.
-I also collected data on the coral and fish near the coast of one of the islands by snorkelling. I got given a chart to be able to identify the different fish and coral.
-I also did a two-hour beach clean which was really eye-opening. The amount of rubbish I found was unbelievable and I could have easily spent another hour with the amount of rubbish that carries on coming in.

Outlook Expeditions

Volunteer/ Community Work

I helped to paint the houses of the poorest people in the village including a coat of protective weatherproof paint to keep the wood from rotting. On the expedition one member of the team could volunteer to be the team leader each day, so I volunteered to be team leader on this particular phase of the project. I feel that I was a fair leader and delegated work and rest slots equally between each member of the team.
I was also part of a cleaning project where we cleaned three of the village's churches.
In the afternoons, we got the chance to work with the children in and outside of school to teach them clapping games, songs and basic English phrases.

Bigger Printing Co

Graphic Design

I designed a roll-up standing banner using 'CoralDraw' and 'Photoshop', following the whole process from start to finish.

On the last day, I visited an event for which the company had supplied banners and posters. I spoke to clients and also took photos which I then edited back at the office ready to upload to the company website.
