My name is
Dear host familly
My name is Maria Vivian, my family and friends usually call me Vivian, I’m 22 years old. My father is a singer and songwriter and my mother is a kindergarten teacher, I am a good combination of both! I really enjoy being with children, learning and teaching, I also like music from different cultures, learning stories and traveling.
I have a degree in International Relations, it shows how much I am interested in other cultures and countries, I love to know new things, it is one of my hobbies. Speaking of hobbies, I really enjoy swimming, visiting museums, interacting with children and listening to my younger cousins talking about their opinions about the different things in the world they are learning.
I qualify for the position because I love children, I like to play with them and watch them grow, I try to take courses to improve my performance and I recently took a first aid course for children and babies. I have no allergies or fear of pets, I had dogs and cats when I was a child and I would like to say, dear family, if you are not from any country mentioned in my profile, there is no problem I would love to meet you.
In my profile it is written that I prefer a job in 2021 or 2022, this is because of the worldwide Coronavirus crisis, with that, it is really difficult to travel, but as soon as all of this is over, I will be ready for work.
I am very excited to meet my future host family, I am organizing several possibilities to make children and families happy and I really want to talk about it, I prepared materials that, if the family wants, I can apply with the children, I have a whole book of games that we can do together, in addition to other things like teaching Portuguese in a fun way that if the family wants I will be happy to facilitate.
I have experience as my brother Vinicius's older sister, he is five years younger than me and I have always helped my mother to take care of him and help with homework; in addition to being an older sister, I am my grandmother's oldest granddaughter, this means that all my cousins are younger than me; it gives you an idea of how much learning and fun I have here. We are very close and we have a lot of fun together, I usually help to take care of them, especially the young ones, because they usually like when I pick up them at school, brush their hair or play and talk to them. In addition to my family experience, I have already volunteered at kindergarten and day care schools in Brazil, where I helped teachers with young children.
In 2019, I had my first experience outside Brazil, made an exchange for the NGO PANACED in Argentina, there, I interacted with children and teenagers in situations of social vulnerability, helped with homework and played with them, we watched cartoons, shared culture and I cooked Brazilian food for them, it was the most beautiful experience of my life, I felt very happy and responsible when participating in their lives. I would like to be an au pair to unite what I like, get to know other cultures and live with children.
