About Me

Hi and welcome to my profile!

Let me take a minute to introduce myself, my name is Charne, I am 21 years old and I am currently pursuing my goal of becoming an Au-pair this year.
I am absolutely in love with traveling and having new experiences with new people and I hope to do exactly that when I become your Au-pair. I hope not only to learn about your culture and beliefs but to teach you about mine as well, and I cannot wait for the opportunity to do so.

I suppose everyone I know would perceive my personality in a different way so I’ll do my best to tell you a little bit about me from my perspective.
I am extremely adventurous and spontaneous and I take every opportunity presented to try something new. I believe in living life to it’s fullest and leaving the dull things for when I get older.

While I am a fun person, I am also inherently responsible and goal driven. From a young age I’ve strived for independence which resulted in me getting my first job at 15 and since then I’ve worked in various different fields. At this point in my life I want to travel and experience the world but my long term goal is to eventually settle down and work towards getting my Doctorate in Clinical psychology, something I’ve been passionate about for several years.

My hobbies are rather diverse and I enjoy just about anything, some of my favourites are :
– Reading
– Cooking
– Art
– Make Up
– Hiking or going to the Beach
– Video Games
– Shopping
– Exploring any new area
-Photography

I have had over 7 years of informal childcare experience.

From the age of 14 I was tasked with looking after younger family members and family friends children. I’ve been responsible from a young age as well as intuitive, which made most people comfortable with me looking after their children.
I will be starting formal Au-pairing with a family in my home town in January 2021 to gain more formal experience while I look for a family to work for abroad, so by the time I leave for abroad I will have over 250 hours of formal childcare experience.
My Host family knows about my plans to leave and we have an understanding.

Becoming your Aupair would not only allow me to fulfill one of my biggest dreams, which is being able to travel to new parts of the world but it will also give me the opportunity to form unbreakable bonds, immerse myself in new cultures and possibly even learn a new language.
I think becoming an Aupair is going to instill an incomparable sense of responsibility and independence that I doubt I would be able to learn anywhere else, while simultaneously granting the ability to gain a new understanding and appreciation of the world.
Allowing me to not only make a positive impact on my own life but the life of a child’s as well is all that I hope for. While it will be a cultural immersion for me, the same can be said about my future host family, I hope that I am able to teach them about my South African culture and help the children learn English as I am aware how hard it is to learn if its not your native language.

I’d like to become an Au-pair so that I can be a little girl or boy’s safe haven when their parents are at work or on holiday, I’d like to be there to always offer a sense of structure and stability when their parents are busy. I want to help my future host child explore their passions and dreams and lend them a hand when they need help with something.

The biggest thing in my opinion that separates a child from an adult is their undying curiosity and their ability to perceive things in such a creative way, that’s what makes them so interesting and that’s why every experience with a child is a new experience because their perspectives are ever changing.

I hope that you allow me this amazing opportunity to create an unbreakable bond with your children and with your family.
