Child Care Experience
I cared for Miguel (13) and Sofia (10) from July 2018 to February 2019 for 40 hours a week. I cooked for them, cleaned their rooms, taught them responsibilities, helped them with homework, taught them to speak English, played sports with them, and taught them how to play the guitar and sing. From January to June 2018, I babysat Martin (11) for 30 hours per week. This included taking him to school and various activities, cooking for him, teaching him to be responsible, helping him with school work, and helping him tidy up. Also, from August to December 2017, I babysat Nicolas (5) for 45 hours a week. I cooked for him, helped him with homework, bathed him, entertained him, and taught him to read. From January to July 2017, I watched Carol (1) for 40 hours a week. My responsibilities included bathing her, dressing her, cooking for her, changing her diaper, entertaining her, and playing with her. From January to September 2016, for 36 hours a week, I watched Samuel (3). I did basic babysitting duties such as picking him up from school, cleaning his room, bathing him, entertaining him, cleaning his room, and feeding him. I worked with a group of children from March to December 2017, ages 4 to 15 years old for 12 hours a week on Saturdays and Sundays. I planned various outdoor activities with them, played games with them, painted with them, and played sports with them. Finally, from April 2019 to the present, I have watched Federico (3mths) for about 10 hours per day. I change his diapers, dress him, bath him, prepare bottles for him, entertain him, read stories to him, and put him to sleep.
Sports, Interests and Hobbies
Learning about financial markets, writing, reading, going to the gym, riding bikes, and walking.
The au pair program in the USA would help me grow as a person since interacting with a new culture, new language, new routine, and new people would help me focus more on the road to my future. I consider myself qualified to be in this program because I am a people person, patient when caring for children, independent in all situations, and creative in solving problems. Additionally, my experience has taught me how to care for children. My strongest qualities are being independent, flexible, active, patient, creative, curious, attentive, affectionate, humble, organized, and punctual. I am also first aid certified.
