My name is
My name is Erica, I am 18 and I will graduate from Senior High on July. I have never been an Au Pair before but I’ve had numerous babysitting experience for I am the eldest daughter and granddaughter, and that has given me the opportunity to babysit my little cousins and appreciate children.
I am an athlete and I have been playing volleyball since I was 10. Aside from sports, I know how to play the guitar, and I am very interested in foreign languages too. As of the moment, I can speak three languages. Those languages are Filipino/Tagalog, English and Spanish, and I am currently learning Russian.
I am very interested in different cultures and languages. In fact, I’ve made several friends from different parts of the globe because of that interest.
I have no vices. I don’t smoke and I don’t drink. But I have no problem with those people who drink and smoke.
I know how to ride a bike, I know how to swim, I know how to play badminton and I have a basic knowledge in chess. I have no driver’s license YET, but I will obtain one.
I don’t have a problem with household chores. In fact, I have been taught to do these chores in my elementary years. Also, I have been interested in cooking ever since I was still in the preparatory school so cooking is not a problem for me.
We have a lot of pets in our home. For that reason, I am very used to taking care of lovely animals, may it be cats, dogs, even turtles and tortoises!
Since I love foreign languages, I believe that I can help children to learn any language that they like even if I have zero knowledge on that language. We can always learn together. Also, I am very willing to share my culture and language (and my recipes too!)
The reason why I want to be an Au Pair is because this pandemic took a lot of opportunity from me and that includes the scholarship for the university. So instead of being sad about it, I decided to seek for a host family that I can help with babysitting, a little housework and cooking, and who can help me learn real life lessons through real life experiences. Aside from that, I am really into learning different cultures and meeting new amazing people.
I have been taking care of my cousins ever since I was young.
