My first type of employment was babysitting. I baby set around the neighborhood. i did so to buy the things I needed. at the age of 13 I became a full time nanny to two children and did so until i was 18 and went off to college. As a live in nanny I went to school full time , cooked, cleaned, did laundry, help with homework and so much more. I did this for a roof over my head, fine clothes and a nice home to live in and they paid me $75 a week. I really had it made. I left home living with my dad who was an alcoholic. It was the door opening for me and i have never had to look back or go back . Life has been great and i would not trade the experience I had for anything.
