Letter to the family

Only available in 2021

Hello!
My name is Zelda, I am the youngest of 4 and have lived in Adelaide, Australia my whole life. I have quickly realised that writing about myself is a difficult thing to do so bare with me.

Although I was born and bred in Australia, my heritage is New Zealand. Both my mum, dad and step-mum's families are from New Zealand, which allowed me the amazing opportunity to visit the beautiful country quite frequently while growing up. I have 2 brothers and 1 sister so I have been apart of a big family and at times chaotic household my whole life but looking back I wouldn't want to change a single bit of it. I am an easy-going and adaptable person who just wants to experience everything life has to offer. I deem myself quite mature and responsible but at the same time (probably thanks to being the youngest and around children a lot) I do have a side of my personality that, let us just say, children can relate to. Being able to see funny things in life and not taking yourself too seriously is a lesson my dad taught me from a young age and I now believe whole-heartedly. I truly think that if you're not laughing then you're not living.

I grew up in a neighbourhood where everyone helped each other and as I got older I became the person to go to when you required a baby sitter whether I liked it or not. Very fortunate for myself that I adored kids and did actually like babysitting. I ended up being a regular baby sitter for a family a couple of houses down from me which had two beautiful kids, 1 boy and 1 girl. I starting looking after them when I was about 17 until the start of this year (20 years old). However, I have now stopped as they both deem themselves too old and too mature to have someone look after them, they are now both 11 years-old. I also help teach gymnastics with my family friend every Tuesday night which involves aiding Brittany to help manage classes that have the age range of 4-10 years old.

The reason why I would love to become an Au Pair relates to what I said about me wanting to experience everything life has to offer. Travelling has been a major dream of mine ever since I was about 14 years old, the idea of seeing how people live in completely different countries to mine, with different cultures and different childhood memories is something that I think is one of the most exciting and interesting things in the world. I have already seen New Zealand and did a trip with my family to America in 2019 for 3 weeks. However, this year I will be going on my first independent adventure with just my best friend and I around Europe for 4 months. Something that I'm sure I will be able to gain stories from to tell your child/children. My next adventure after Europe is I hope an Au Pair job, I want to learn different cultures, meet amazing people and see amazing places that I would have never thought I would see. Even though my experience in looking after children did not include me having to do a course or gain a certificate, I do believe that I have at least had adequate experience and most of all I have a huge love for children. I sincerely hope that is enough.
