Child Care Experience
Since May 2020, twice a week for 3 hours, I babysit my sister Hanna since she was born. I take care of every aspect of child care. Sicne March 2014, once a week, I take care of Arne and Bruno (now 10) and Julius (now 12). I prepare their meals, play with them, help with homework and put them to bed. Since Ugust 2017, twice a year, for 8 hours, I look after Pia (1) and Viktor (2). I play with them and look after them. Sicne June 2018, when needed, I take care of Annika (now 8). I pick her up from school, help wiht homework, make dinner and put her to bed. In May and June 2019, for 3 weeks, I worked in a kindergarten where I looked after a group of children ages 1 to 2.
Sports, Interests and Hobbies
Dancing, making props and scenery, music, every kind of creative activity (e.g. to read, write, draw or bake), calm walks with my dog in nature where I take a lot of photos from my surroundings, planning trips, activities and events with my family and friends and enjoy spending time with them, outdoor activities such as sailing, surfing, swimming, skating, I like volleyball, table tennis, home workouts, gym sessions and dance classes
I would like to use the time after my high school graduation to collect new experiences in terms of dealing with new situations, myself, culture and social fields. The USA gives me the best possibilities because it includes the cultural and nature diversity I want to experience. In exchange I want to bring my various experiences in childcare to my host family. I learned to interact with children in many different ways due to the different contacts with them. Not only the babysitting tasks but also the duties around the children like preparing dishes showed me the meaning of childcare. Through these impressions I became a very patient and also determined person who tries to find solutions for every kind of situation. Thereby, I effort to look after each ones needs and feelings, so no one gets lost between others. My emphatic manner helps me to understand the children minds.
