Victoria used to work for a family with a 2 year old boy who showed autistic spectrum disorder. She was spending 3 hours per day with him following a strict schedule imposed by the child's psychologist. Victoria had to play with him and to encourage him to talk. She also had to take him to the kindergarten in order to integrate him with other groups of children and to act as his personal teacher, since he needed special attention unlike the other children from the class. Because the treatment was very expensive, the child's parents had to give up her services after 2 months. Even so, she is still a very good friend of the family and she visits the little boy every time she can.
Her English is good. She also speaks Russian, French and basic German.
Victoria is prepared to care for babies, children, disabled children or elderly, to do laundry, ironing, light housework, cooking for the whole family, shopping for groceries, gardening and driving.
Victoria is a very sociable and talkative girl. She makes friends very easily. She would describe herself as a responsible and a sincere person.
Victoria likes to eat all types of food. She prefers to eat spaghetti, ice cream, bananas, mushrooms, fish and salads. She doesn't like spicy food. She loves to cook for her family and for her friends. She has a box of recipes that she likes to try from time to time.
Victoria has had a driving license since she was 18. She doesn't have her own car, but drives her parent's car or sometimes her friend's car as often as she can.
