JOB DESCRIPTION

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I am an 8 year old girl who lives in Barry. I am an energetic child who loves to do fun and exciting activities. I am a busy, chatty person who likes to be active.  I enjoy going to the shops and Mum says I especially like to go and buy a new teddy bear whenever I can. I like to go to McDonalds, to play centres, the fair ground and soft play. I like swimming (anything with water in general) and especially enjoy going to the beach. I have Autism and have no concept of danger, so I require constant supervision. I like to watch Youtube videos of animals, especially ones about American alligators as these are my favourite. Mum says I am happy when I am watching anything with animals in, such as Patchwork Pals on Cbeebies.
