My name is
Hello from Indonesia!
My name is Kika. I am a 23 year-old (female) graduate student of English literature. I currently live in Medan, Indonesia. I come from a family of 6: My parents are self employed and run a small farmer in the countryside of Medan. I have 2 married sisters and one younger brother.
In about a year or three, I plan to pursue a masters degree, but I am yet to make up my mind concerning my future area of specialization. So, at the moment, I would like to take some time out of academics to have a different life experience, and to have time to calmly reflect on my future academic/professional orientation. To this end, I think spending a year abroad to be an aupair would be particularly interesting.
My first language is, of course, Bahasa Indonesia, and I am also fluent in English. I started learning English in primary school, and it was also the language of instruction in the secondary school, high school, and university I attended. I have in addition been taking courses taught in English at university. I study an intermediate level of German. I begun learning it in high school and have been taking German language classes at a public course for the last two years. All in all, I have learnt German for 4 years.
When it comes to child-care experience, I had helped my sisters to look after my nephews since birth because my sisters went working everyday in the second month after. I can comfortably say that I sincerely enjoy spending time with children and the same time, study for my college.
When it comes to leisure, I take pleasure in the simple things in life. I enjoy being outdoors, being with my friends, going for walks, visiting places I have not been to, and reading a good book. I also enjoy painting and on dull or rainy days, I often propose drawing and painting activities to my brother and sister and our neighbour’s children whenever they come for company. Did I already mention that I love to read and write? Now I am starting a Wattpad account and write there. Most of my works written in Indonesian bit I do hope to start writing in English. I love fiction and that is why I chose literature.
As far as preferences are concerned, I am looking for a live-in arrangement with a host family, that would be happy to have me stay with and work for them for at least 6 months. I would also prefer looking after children aged between 12 months to 10 years.
I would be happy to have the opportunity to speak with you: to answer whatever questions you may have about me or my childcare experiences; to learn more about your family; your interests and to know more about what you expect from the au pair arrangement.
Thank you very much for your interest in my application!
I look forward to hearing from you.
My experience based on teaching process and familial relationship.
