Latisha is a student at Syracuse University, majoring in psychology and public health. She plans to attend medical school or to continue on to earn her PhD in one of these fields. Her ultimate goal is to become a child psychologist or a pediatric psychiatrist. Latisha first realized she wanted to work with children after her first job at a children's recreation facility. She then became a party hostess at Chuck E Cheese and picked up babysitting gigs whenever she could.

Ornella is studying international relations at American University, with a possible minor in public health. After college, she hopes to continue her education at either Georgetown University or Johns Hopkins. Her dream job would be to work either at the World Bank or the United Nations. Born in Quebec City, Ornella lived in Montreal for the majority of her childhood. A fluent French speaker, she has lived in the DMV area since 2010. She started out caring for family members' children, and then, discovering her talent for it, decided to pursue it as a job. She enjoys children because they are genuine and naturally silly. She also appreciates each child's unique sense of creativity and finds it fascinating to see how they can make a game out of anything. Working with children reminds Ornella there is always something new to learn form people of all ages.
