About Me

Hi my name is Mariana, I am portuguese and I live in Lisbon. I’ve just recently celebrated my 19th anniversary. I’m currently at university studying physics and I hope to work in NASA as an astrophysicist. I have a sister, Maria João, of 16 years old, who is still in high school and also studying sciences. My father is an university’s professor in Law and my mother is an executive coach.

Last year, when I turned 18, my family and friends did a video with their testimonials about me. They all said that I take ownership, that I am very responsible, methodical and organized. They also acknowledged that I am very funny, caring and good mooded.

I am also someone who likes to dance and go out with my friends. I also like to spend time with my sister and parents at home, watching Friends or MasterChef Australia on TV. In the summer I usually go for a couple of weeks to Comporta, where my aunt has a beach house. There, me, my sister and my two young cousins take the most of our summer time. We play together all the time, do a lot of goofy stuff and take long walks by the beach. I’ve been also a scout since I was 6 years old.  I´ve been assigned several times to the role of team guide.  One of the most exciting perks of being a scout is that I get the opportunity to travel! For example, in 2015 I went to Japan for an international camping event with scouts from all over the world.

I’m really excited about the opportunity of becoming an Au Pair. What motivates me is, simultaneously, being able to support a family and having the experience of living abroad for a while. Furthermore, it will allow me to become more independent and learn more about another culture. I am also enthusiastic in sharing my culture with you. I’m very confident that I am up to the challenge. Sometimes I do babysitting: I have a neighbour with three children and when they have plans for the night I am the one who takes care of them. It usually requires preparing dinner for them and put them into bed. I consider myself very good with children because I have good spirit, imagination to play with them and I care for them. I have also patience and assertiveness when needed.

This year I’ve also started tutoring two students, who I support in Math.

Relating my expectations, I have flexibility to adapt to the family habits. I would like to have a private room and I would like to have some free time once in while to explore the city. Furthermore I am happy to cook to the children.

I’m looking forward to meeting you!
