Katelyn Finley

"I work with the kindergartners and preschoolers in childcare during the school year. My brother had been working there. When I turned 14 and I could get a job, I applied there. I like playing with the kids and doing crafts. If you're not giving one hundred percent, the kids can see that. The job totally motivates me. During the summer, I work as a camp counselor at the Y for ages 6 to 10. When you go to apply for a job, it certainly helps to be interested in it. You have to be presentable and keep a positive attitude. I like that I am helping out and earning money for myself at the same time. I am looking into being a teacher or psychiatrist."
