The USA has very nice States and it has always been on my bucket list to travel there. I enjoy being an au pair and I would like to work with kids in my future occupation. Au pairing is a nice way to build childcare experience and I have already learned so much and would like to learn more about the American culture. I would like to learn how to deal with different structures and develop personally. I would like to expand my knowledge. I am a good listener, have a kind heart and I can also be strict when rules need to be followed. I like to be active, curious and like to try learning new things. I am organized, energetic and enjoy the outdoors. I driver super well, I can swim and cycle comfortably with kids and I enjoy being creative with them. As mentioned I also did a beginners course in cooking and I obtained a higher certificate in counselling and communication.
