My name is
Hello! My name is Jorgen, I am 26 years old and have come here looking for an opportunity. An opportunity to be a part of something bigger than myself. My entire life I have always been a caring person, and it seems to me that the world will always be in need of us, the carers. I took a personality-trait test when I was in University and found that my top 5 traits suggested that I would best find work in fields such as Coaching, Mentoring, Nursing, and Caregiving. Makes perfect sense considering my upbringing and my parents; the most kind and compassionate people whom I have the pleasure of calling mom and dad. I grew up in an upper middle-class family in the breathe taking city of Duluth, Minnesota. My parents are happily married and own their own business. I have an older sister who has a degree in early childhood development and works as a nanny in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Me? I grew up playing team sports (mostly soccer/futball) I am a professional and punctual young man with a good head on his shoulders. I have never been in trouble with the law, and choose to associate myself with a terrific group of people I am blessed enough to call my friends. I went to college on both an academic and athletic scholarship (soccer) and graduated with a bachelors degree in sports management. Upon graduating, the university offered me another scholarship to obtain a masters degree in Educational Administration and Policy, and a position on the Men’s Soccer Team Staff as an assistant coach. 3 years, a plethora of experience and one more degree; I am fresh out of graduate school and looking to become, like I mentioned before, something bigger than myself.
Please consider me as your au pair. I feel that I am someone who has an impact on others. Someone who families want around for something more than just an extra set of hands. I feel that a position and opportunity such as this would be something that I would cherish forever. The relationships, the experiences, the genuine desire to be doing something good in the world in leading new, young minds into this world with confidence, a humble disposition, a proper sense of right and wrong, and most importantly; a smile. If I had to boast; I am a genuinely kind, well-traveled person who has a broad and open mind. I feel my best when I am able to get the best out of those around me. It’s just who I am.
No professional child care background, but am willing to acquire any sort of license or certificate necessary
