  About Me
 
Hello My Name is Uzair.

Experience/ Background:
I am a currently a Junior studying Interactive Media and Game design at the University of Southern California. I moved here from Pakistan, after my dad passed away in 2009. Since then I have been in the United States furthering my education.

I was the only one from my family who had come to the United States in order to study. Although the rest of my family is in Pakistan, I am still very close to them and Skype and Call them everyday.

Family is a very important thing to me and so I understand the true meaning of taking care of someone. I am very close with my family, I have my mom, I have my sister who is 18 years old and will be soon going to a University in Canada, and I have my lovely little brother who is 7 years old. My brother is one of the most important things in my life, and I have learned how to be a parental figure because of him. I have taken care of my brother ever since he was born, so I have a lot of experience taking care of children from a very young age.

Later on when I moved to the States I went to work for one of my aunt's here, who to this date runs her very own day care. It was a very useful learning experience for me to take care of multiple children at once, as it gave me a challenge that I was willing to take on and that gave me so much more experience as compared to someone else my age. Along with her children I also took care of my cousins, who are also around the ages of 3-10, and I am usually put in-charge of taking care of them for long hours, since I am the most responsible and oldest out of all my cousins, so I am around many kids quite a lot.

Hobbies:
I have many hobbies, I love to play sports. I am part of the rowing team at USC and we are quite good. Other than that I love to play soccer and have taught many kids how to play swell. Sports gave me a new ideology of playing through order which seemed like an interesting thing for me to learn as a kid, as it showed balance.
Other activities that I like to do are draw. I am an artist and I love to draw, using many pencils and pens.
I usually just take many suggestions from people on things to draw, but still explore my own ideas as well.

I am a big comic book person and super heroes have always inspired me to be a better person. As my favorite hero, spiderman would say, " with great power, comes great responsibility".

I love to watch Movies a lot, I love watching movies like finding nemo and wreck it ralph as I feel one should always keep in touch with their inner child, and so I love watching animated films with kids. I once took a cinematic arts class once, where I watched many classical era films as well, and so I have a better appreciation for film making now.

I really despise the idea of smoking as it is the worst of all things, as it is the willingness to intentionally cause harm to one's body, so I tend to stay far away from people who smoke, and refrain from it myself. I prefer much healthier activities like eating healthy, going out for a jog, and going to the gym, rather than drinking, smoking and eating fast food.

FInally I love to play video games, not only because I am studying in developing them, but also because video games have taught me much in life, they are a world where imagination can run free and I would say imagination is one thing that a kid should always be able to explore.

Conclusion:
I am a very fast learner and can absorb information very quickly due to my sharp memory. I am well aware of the needs of children and my responsibilities when it comes to taking care of a child as, it is a very delicate process. I am also always willing to learn new things.

That pretty much covers all the basics. If there are any specific questions that you may have, I would be most happy to answer them for you.

I can also provide my resume if needed per your request :)
Thank you

Additional Experiences/Qualifications/Preferences:
I am willing to work many long hours if needed, for my job since I have experience taking care of kids for long periods of time. I would prefer not to work on the weekends as I am still young and a student and would like to have the weekends off to hangout with my friends and relax. I live in Pasadena, and I can drive, so getting to you isn't a problem, but there might be times when my grandparents might need the car, in which case I will take the metro to work.
