My name is
Hello host family! My name is Lucy and I live in the South-West countryside of England. I am in my final year of sixth form studying Alevel Photography and Digital Media Studies. I also have a part time job and volunteer as well. I would love to work as an Au Pair after my studies, I am keen to join and support a family. I really enjoy working with children and have volunteered at my local primary school for 7 months now, along with being a regular babysitter. This has given me great experience in understanding how to interact with a variety of children.
I would describe my personality as a happy and caring person who looks out for others. I am an honest and hardworking person who likes to pursue my goals. I am fun loving but serious when necessary. I really enjoy spending time with younger children, looking after them and helping them to develop.
I would love to become an Au Pair as I really enjoy being with children. I would really like to live in a different country, experience the culture and learn a new language. Being an Au Pair would enable me to achieve these ambitions as well as becoming a valued part of a family.
I have been volunteering at my local primary school with a class of 9 year olds for 7 months every week, which has enabled me to learn about how to work with children. It has given me an understanding of the different needs and challanges that children have. The school made me responsible for groups of children when learning and doing activities. I really enjoy going to the school as I have developed a relationship with children in the class.
I also regularly babysit in my surrounding villages making me responsible for children that I look after, I have developed trust within families as they rely on me.
I have helped run various sporting events with primary schools which invloved me teaching them the games and being responsible for their wellbeing. It was very rewarding to see the children develop the skills that I had taught them and having fun at the same time.
