Letter to the family

Dear Host Family,
My name is Quinn! I'm 22 years old and I'm from Austin, Texas. In 2018, I moved to New Jersey to attend Rider University and I plan to graduate in May 2022. I am a senior BFA Musical Theatre major and Psychology minor. After earning my degree, I planned to move to New York and audition for Broadway shows... but due to the pandemic, the live theatre industry is a little unstable at the moment and it's hard for new actors to find work.
With my time out of the theatre, I realized how much I LOVE working with kids. During the school year, I am a nanny for 3 young boys and it is the best job ever!
The past few summers I've been a counselor at Camp Olympia in Trinity, Texas for 6-7-year-old girls and I've LOVED every second of it!
I planned on studying abroad in London my sophomore year... but the pandemic happened! So now that I am graduating I really want to experience Europe and learn about other cultures.
I would love to help you out!
I am a very positive person and I take pride in being optimistic. My mother always taught me to be humble and kind in every situation I encounter. I believe that being an au pair/ nanny requires you to be apart of a team with the family. In the past, I've loved working with the kids... but I also enjoy housework. This summer, I was voted "Best Camp Counselor" and "Most Hardworking" so you can ensure I would help you as much as possible.
I rarely get into conflict with others because I’m a “people pleaser” which is good and bad! But in a team, I am willing to be flexible for the betterment of the group as a whole.

I want to be an au pair because I would love to experience new cultures, meet new people, and work with kids! I feel like staying with people from the country is the best way to embrace different ways of life. I am eager to help families who need an extra hand and it would be incredible to learn new things along the way!

Experience

I have been a nanny for the same family for the past 3 years! They have three boys (ages: 2, 4, and 6) and I have learned so much about what it takes to help a family. Working as a team with the parents, I made sure the boys stuck to their bed time schedules and then I would do housework as needed.
For the past three summers, I've been a summer camp counselor for 6-7 year old girls. Each summer, I'd be at camp for about 11 weeks and it has been the hardest and most rewarding job! We would have two counselors per cabin with 11 girls. Having to get them all dressed and ready by 7:30 AM was the hardest part... but I loved teaching activities (dance, swimming, kayaking, track, fishing, arts & crafts, archery, horseback) and bonding with them. My campers from three years ago still write me letters!

I have also been a Red Cross certified lifeguard for the past six years and I'm a Red Cross certified babysitter, so you can ensure that your kiddos are in safe hands! I have a lot of experience working with many different types of children including those with autism, down syndrome, and other developmental disorders. I have babysat children from the ages of 2 months to 10 years around my neighborhood for years and no other job has brought me more joy. I also worked at local elementary schools throughout high school, individually mentoring and tutoring kids who came from struggling homes.
While with the kids I love to sing, play games, dance, act, make art and have as much fun as possible. etc.
