My name is
My name is Samantha and I am a 21 year-old college student. I have babysat/ nannied since I was 13, looking after younger cousins and neighbors. I have also done various camps from sports camps, to jewelry making to general summer camps. Every summer for the past three years, i’ve nannied 5 days a week, 10 hours a day. All of these jobs have been local, but I think it would be an amazing experience to broaden my horizons and do what I love in another country. I am very adventurous, as I love being active in all seasons. I have only travelled in the states, but I know I would thrive in another culture with all the amazing new experiences. When I have nannied, the kids and I do everything from playing with dolls/ action figures, to going to the beach, to riding bikes, and sometimes just hanging around and watching movies if the weather keeps us inside. I believe the best thing for not just children, but everyone, is to be active and go and do things as often as possible. These days people are so consumed with their devices and the TV that we forget about the world around us. My expectations when becoming an au pair is to learn and become absorbed in the culture and way of life. I am looking forward to the opportunity to plan activities that will be fun for the children and keep them entertained as much as possible. I am very organized and energetic. I can always keep up with young kids for a long period of time, and for that I’m usually assigned “kid duty” at family events. ? I am open to any and all ideas that the kids may have throughout the day, as long as they are practical and safe. Being apart of children’s lives, even just for a small amount of time, is interesting, as I find that just in a short few months they change so much. Families can trust that their children will be in good hands, and most importantly, will always be having fun! I am available in the summer of 2018, and I can provide references as needed. ?
I have worked at camps of all sorts in the past years and babysat/nannied since I was 13
