Hello!

My name is Kayleigh, and I am a 24-year-old with dual citizenship in Germany and South Africa. I grew up in Cape Town, where I completed my schooling before earning a bachelor's degree in Science (Biochemistry and Chemistry) from Stellenbosch University. Following this, I moved to Amsterdam to pursue a master's degree in Chemistry with a focus on energy and sustainability at the University of Amsterdam, from which I recently graduated. I am now excited and eager to combine my love for childcare with my passion for travel and cultural exploration by becoming an au pair.

I am a friendly, caring, reliable, organized, and hard-working individual who is conscientious about my surroundings. I enjoy bringing joy to others and take the initiative to organize activities. My interests include running, hiking, swimming, water-skiing, diving, skiing, snowboarding, and playing paddle. I grew up doing artistic gymnastics, where I competed and represented South Africa as a junior gymnast. Additionally, I participated in lifesaving as a sport and became a beach lifeguard at the age of 17, and continued to work as one in Cape Town for three years.

My childcare experience includes babysitting, tutoring, and coaching gymnastics for girls aged 6-10 years old. I have tutored children throughout high school and university, mainly in mathematics and chemistry/physics. I am certified in first aid and CPR, and I have held a driver's license for the past six years.

I believe my diverse skill set would be beneficial to your children. I am helpful, kind, and always ready to go the extra mile. I would love to be considered for the position and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards,
Kayleigh

Experience

Over the past two years, I have overcome several challenges that are involved when relocating from one’s hometown. I moved away from Cape Town to Amsterdam, in the Netherlands, to study, work and live abroad. While doing a master’s degree in chemistry at the University of Amsterdam, I also worked part time as a waitress, and got familiar with the way of living here. Overcoming these challenges has made me confident in my ability to bridge any gaps in my current skill set through hard work, dedication, and resilience.

Additionally, living in the Netherlands afforded me the opportunity to explore various parts of Europe during my leisure time. This experience significantly deepened my passion for travel. As someone who cherishes taking care of children, as well as a love for travel to new places, I believe that becoming an Au Pair abroad aligns perfectly with my interests and skills.
