During summer holiday I worked in a summer camp with children aged from 8 till 16. It wa an active camp which was called “Robinzonada “. There were different programs :such as tour with tent, where children studied to make a fire and cook on it , theoretical program about leaders skills.
In that camp I went to a camping trip for do 4 days. During that time children showed everything they studied and made everything by themselves,( they did everything under my control and I helped them,when it was necessary.

June 2017 – October 2017 Wollerau (Switzerland)

A position of an au pair in a family with 2 kids ( A Letter of Recommendation is Available)
• Taking care of 2 girls aged 2 and 3
• Managing the household: the house, the garden and the laundry
• Speaking English to the kids

Motivation: I would like to be an au pair for many reasons. First of all, because it's something that suits me very well. I spent the last 4 years of my life working with kids in one way or another in 4 different countries, as either an au pair, a tutor or a tour guide, and it's something that I found to be truly enjoyable. I like their energy, I enjoy having a chance to organize different games and fun activities with them and, partly because I would like to study psychology in the future, it truly fascinates me to talk to the kids, to understand they way they think, how they feel at the particular moment and why.

Secondly, I honestly think it's one of the best ways to learn a new culture, a new language and see the world. I spent one year as an exchange student in the USA and one year as a volunteer in Lithuania, but neither one of them I enjoyed as much as being an au pair. It's truly something special. On the one hand it's a job, at times even a difficult one, and it's the one I'm good at and the one I take seriously. But on the other hand, it's a year full of surprises, opportunities, small and big victories and a lot of fun. I've learnt more about kids, families and life in general during my first weeks as an au pair than I did at all of my previous jobs combined.

Las but not least, I know that some of the connections I've made with the people these past few years will last me a lifetime, and I would truly like to make some more.

Childcare experience: When it talks about child-care experience, I have looked after children in formal and informal context. The most unforgettable experience was in 2016, when I became a youth volunteer in Izmir, Turkey. My main responsibility was providing education to Syrian children who live in Izmir by became teacher in two alternative schools for Syrian refugee. I conducted art classes for almost 3 months. Moreover, my background in Psychology brought me to an opportunity to learn about play therapy approach from my supervisor during the project. The approach was very helpful on helping Syrian children who experienced post-traumatic disorder because of war in their country. In addition, during my senior year in University I also became a part-time teacher and traditional dance instructor in an alternative school for street-kids in Jakarta.
However, I also had experience on helping my cousin to take care of her 4 years old daughter, because their house close to mine. My responsibility was picking her up from school, preparing her lunch, brought her to bad for afternoon nap, accompanied her to traditional dance course and also play with her.

Education: Bachelor Degree

Childcare experience: Since I was young I enjoyed taking care of children, I began as a teacher in a sport camp every summer for two years, it was very fun. I oversaw children from 3 to 13 years old.

I was also part of a catholic youth group. I started going when I was 14 years until I was 20 years old. I started going as a normal girl every Saturday and took normal activities such as playing games, learning cultural stuff, make new friends, but also taking courses (leadership, firs aids, culture, etc) to be selected as a “headship”. I got selected and now I had new responsibilities, I oversaw 15 girls between 10 and 13 years old. After being with those girls for 3 years I took more courses and got selected as a “command” with 6 other girls. We oversaw 100 girls between 10 and 15 years old. I really enjoyed being part of the youth group.

When I was doing my bachelor degree. I decided to make social service in a social impact group. This group organized camps for children with family problems between 6 and 11 years old a weekend of every month. It is amazing what you can learn from every child, but I think what I learned the most was patience. Every child is different, and every child is going through difficult moments. It is important to learn how to treat them individually.
I also enjoy taking care of my nieces since they were 1 year old. My sister doesn’t have any children, these nieces are from my cousins and I help them every once in a while when they need support..

Motivation: I really enjoy being around children, it makes me enjoy things the way they do it, everything is a new adventure for them. Also, I like the feeling of knowing that I can teach them things I’ve learned and help them become good persons as an adult. I really hope the children I’ve taken care of have learned something from me as I learned from them.

Being an au pair means taking new responsibilities, I believe these experiences will make me grow as a person.
I believe I have the ability to make a difference in children and with families, also I know I am very eager to learn many things from a different but very interesting culture. I’ve been in Netherlandsbefore as a tourist and people have always treated me in a very nice way. Their cities are beautiful and rich in culture. As a Mexican there are many things people don’t know from us and I would gladly share my traditions and culture as an au pair..

In a future I would like to do a master degree in Europe, my first option is Netherlands.I have a great interest in learning Dutch because I know it will help in my professional career

Childcare experience: Since I was 7 years old, my mom has been organizing a kind of Christmas party for the less fortunate children, so year after year we have been giving them presents, recreation and lunch and we chare a very special moment with them on that day, it’s so gratifying to see that we can put a smile on their faces while they enjoy and play and open the gifts we give them. On the other side, my mom worked in a bank called Davivienda that has foundations in little towns around Colombia, so I have been able to go there and help with the activities that are organized, those activities are focused in special games for kids so that they can also learn while playing.

Motivation: I have always dreamed about the experience of living in another country, and from the very first time I visited Europe, I felt in love with the variety of cultures you can find. I have a very good level in English language but I believe the best way to really learn it is to live in a country where you can practice all the time. I would love to learn costumes from another culture and in return I can teach you everything about how rich the costumes from Colombia are, because right now we are being known for good things such as sports and the joy of our people and not by the bad things the world thought of us.
I’m a very mature girl and I would love to be an example for others, and I have learned that children can teach grown ups so much, such as be happy with simple things, to relearn to love unconditionally without expecting anything in return, to be free and stop worrying about the future or the consequences and enjoy the present. I believe all those things are so important to keep learning to be a better person, so I believe I can be the best big sister you can ask for your kids, the same way I can keep learning from them.

Now I help my cousin to take care of two-year-old twins - a boy Vladislav, and a girl Yarina. I try to teach them to speak new words, letters, sounds of animals, read a lot in Ukrainian and English, see developing cartoons, play in the yard, when I put them to sleep singing to them lullabies, dancing and doing exercises.

Motivation: For me, the Au-Pair program is an opportunity to gain my experience as a teacher, and to become an older sister for children and a good friend for the whole family. I have the desire to discover new knowledge about the country, culture and family, to see and experience new emotions and feelings, to improve my language level and to learn a new language.
During this year I will try to find out as much as possible about the mentality and interesting facts about the inhabitants of this country, to use my free time to study the language and travel the country's historical places.
The first goal of all is to become a real member of a new family and a faithful friend to parents and children.

Amanda Rose Sita

Age: 20

Nationality: Indonesian

Country of residence: Indonesia

Start date: 01.07.2018

Education: High school - Business Administration major.

Childcare experience: I’m the first child of my family, I have one sister and she is 3 years younger than me. We used to be independent since we were child, because our parents used to work and be home a little late, so we both stayed home during the day until evening, without any help from nanny and such, we were lucky to have such a good neighbor, so when it came unexpected problem, I always asked help to my neighbor. So, not only taking care of my sister when we were younger, but I was also learning of taking care of myself.

I have an experience as an au pair in Denmark. In the daily life I helped the host family to ease their life, I helped them with doing the light household and also taking care the kids. The kids were 5 and 8, we used to play in the evening when they came home from school, we also did craft during the Halloween such as a made a fake bat from the toilet paper roller. Sometimes I also did occasional babysitting in the evening when the parents needed to go out. I miss of having a role as a big sister again, it was a very wonderful time spending there and I would love to experience having more chance to be au pair again. As an au pair, I’m willing to help host family to ease their life to help them with light household and as well as with the kids.

Motivation: About me
My name is Amanda, I’m 20 years old and I come from Indonesia. I consider myself as a self-organized and minimalist as I like to keep things in order, because I like to keep things simple as it is a great way of a simplify the life. I'm very well open-minded person, I like to try new things or to hear and consider new ideas. I'm very a motivated person and I like to keep improving myself as I start reading book as my habit, therefore I read more like self-improvement books than fiction. In my free time, I like reading book, watching movie or sometimes documentaries, also do regular home exercise. I am a very positive person in my own, positive mind brings a good life. I like pets, and I used having so many pets when I was younger, like fish, rabbits, cats, bird and even chicken, but right now we have cats. I don’t smoke, I don’t have any allergies.

I’m very young but I am really a responsible person. I am also a very punctual person because I really value time, therefore I don’t like to be late. I like learning new languages, I have basic Danish and German. I learned Danish when I was au pair in Denmark, and I learned German A2 in my own country because I was interested to learn that, and I’m still learning it through internet mostly.

Why do I want to be au pair
I like kids and I love spending time with kids, also I like meeting new people from various background. I want to have a chance to learn something from myself, being away from home and get out of the box is a challenge, but it will be an experience that I won’t forget. I live in a big city and there is almost no nature nearby, l’d love to be au pair in Europe again, because it offers so much from nature and culture. In the future, I’ll go back to Indonesia and continue to study.
