Child Care Experience
I have babysat two families, occasionally, as needed since 2016: Noa (7) & Milo (5) and Noomi (3), Casper (6), & Osscar (9). As a babysitter and dog sitter for these families, I would play indoors and outdoors with the kids, watch TV with them, read books to them, and cook for them. From September 2013 to May 2014, I started teaching a cooking class with my friend to a group of children between the ages of 7 and 10. Then, from September 2016 to May 2018, I started teaching a cooking class on my own once a week. The children here were between the ages of 8 to 12 and I taught them to cook simple foods like different pasta dishes and salads.
Sports, Interests and Hobbies
Acting, going to the movies, outdoor activities, listening to music, going to the gym, handball, horseback riding, and skiing.
I just finished high school and don't have a clear idea of what I want to study so I decided to take a gap year. This would be an amazing opportunity to work as an au pair and gain new experiences and get to know different cultures. I feel like I would be a good candidate for the program because I have a lot of different experiences working with kids and dogs. I'm independent, hard working, and can also manage stressful situations.
