About Me

I am 18, from Northern Ireland completing my A-Level exams in May 2022. I am taking a gap year before going to do my university degree- Philosophy with English. I currently have a part time job in a local tourist attraction where I am a waitress in the restaurant, as well as admin staff in the ticket office, and working our special events- weddings, concerts and business functions. I love music – I play violin, literature and art, and I really love the outdoors, being an avid camper, hiker and having dabbled in kayaking and other activities

I love kids, I find them so funny and interesting; how they grow and develop. It’s really rewarding to be part of that process. My mum works in a primary school and I have helped out there for events like nativity plays and gardening, as well as helping out with kids at events I have been part of through friends and family friends. This has included making crafts at living history displays, showing them donkeys and other animals for Christmas fairs, as well as just looking after the children of friends during camping weekends and other outings. I like to get familiar with kids, beign their friend rather than an authority, but able to be stern when it’s necessary.

I think au pairing is a great way to travel and immerse yourself with a culture, whilst getting to nuture and spend time with kids, really getting to know them and see them develop. It is a very rewarding experience to look after children so to do this on a longer term basis than what I have done so far would be incredible.
