My name is
I am a 25 year old female from a large family in South Africa. I love painting and sculpting especially and cakes, cookies and sometimes even faces.
I started baby-sitting when I was fourteen years old and I have been looking after kids ever since. My sister was born when I was 15 so I spent most of my high school weekends helping my mom look after her. Then, when I turned 18, my baby brother was born and all my college nights were spent looking after him (and he still sneaks into me bed sometimes!)
I completed a Bachelors Degree at WITS University, majoring in English Literature and Media Studies. I then obtained a TESOL certificate and I am qualified to teach English as a second language to both children and adults. I am also a qualified makeup and special effects artist.
I’ve worked for families of various nationalities including South African, Finnish, Italian and American, as well as kids of various ages and I am completely comfortable with all ages. I have also worked as a care-giver to someone recovering from an eating disorder.
I am a great cook and an even better baker. I am particularly good at planning and executing birthday parties. I love traveling, reading and superhero’s. I also know the theme song of almost every show on Disney channel, Disney Junior and Nickelodeon, so there is sure to be many moments of spontaneous karaoke.
I hope to expand my knowledge of other cultures as well play a positive role in a child’s life the way I have with my younger siblings.
Children aged 3 to 14 in the last 3 years.
