Childcare experience: I have experience in child care with ages from six months old to twelve years, both girls and boys.

Country of residence: Australia
Start Date: 01.12.2019
Education: Studying to be a Chiropracter
Childcare experience: I’m very bubbly, friendly and always trying to be positive when it comes to situations and new experiences. I have just lived away for a year in Spain where I got to experience things I never thought I would ever have the chance to do and this opened my mind up to different opportunities. during my time in Spain I lived in a family of 5 with 2 children and they soon became my best friends as we would always spend time playing soccer or simple things such as cooking. In Spain I also offered English classes for little kids and just the look on their faces when they finally understood some English science and the fun activities we were able to do made me consider becoming a au pair. In Australia I’ve always been the one to want to try everything. usually in my free time I surf, do yoga and jiujistu and after living in Spain and not knowing any Spanish at the start to now being a B2 level I would love to learn a new language!
Motivation: To become an au pair for me is counted as a life experience and not a job. The experience I hope to get from living in a new country and living with a new family is what makes me excited. I’ve always been a little bit of a kid always wanting to take part in their activities and help them out so why not do it as a job! I know children can be hard sometimes but it’s the reward you get from those hard times is what makes me want to work with kids because it’s a new experience with new opportunities.
