My name is
Hello! My name is Olivia and I would LOVE to be an au pair for any family! I have just completed year 12 in Canberra, Australia and I will be having a gap year for 2018 so that I can explore and travel. I am 18 years old (19 in April) and I would be interested in being an au pair starting any time onwards from March 2018. I am open to being situated in any European country but preferably Italy, France or Spain.
I have more than a years worth of experience babysitting both boys and girls. This experience has taught me to be patient, open-minded and flexible but most of all it has made me realise how much I love being around children! I would love to integrate myself into a caring host family where I can have a positive impact on the kids and help with anything they need – a big sister role of sorts! I am also willing to help with any chores or errands the family requires including looking after pets (I love animals!). I would definitely love to teach English to the children and even the parent/s and provide an insight into Australian culture.
Travelling really excites me and I would be keen to explore the areas around the host home during my free time. I am particularly interested in architecture and I love trying foreign foods. If there were a school nearby where I could learn the native language I would definitely look into that too. During my free time in Australia I love going to the beach with friends and family, camping, hiking, craft, playing board games, reading, playing with my dog, going to parks and out to cafes. I am of Christian faith but am open to being with a family of any religion as long as they too are respectful and tolerant. If I was to describe myself in 5 words it would be hard-working, loving, energetic, patient and eager to learn. I have held a drivers licence for almost 2 years and could drive if required.
I hope this gives you a good idea about who I am but I am more than happy to answer any more questions. I look forward to hearing from you!
Have babysat for multiple families throughout the past two years, more regularly in the past year. Have had experience with children with special needs. Looked after children of ages between 6-12.
