Letter to the family

Hello!

My name is Ardini and I am a pandemically prepared Au Pair! I've thought about becoming an Au Pair and travelling to Europe towards the end of my sixth form as I needed to take a much needed break after my 'A' Levels and to refrain myself from thinking about my future and university options. However, those plans have been put on pause in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. But being the optimistic person I am, I hope to be able to finally fill my gap year will exciting adventures as an Au Pair next year.

I've always loved kids, and living in a big Asian-household, the house is usually almost always filled with kids! I will have to admit that I have little experience in full-time nannying, but I have had good experiences baby-sitting my little cousins when their parents are away or busy at work. I am also a good tutor according to my little brother, who I have tutored since he was 11 (now 15). I am a very fun-loving and creative person, thus I can create fun, entertaining, and cool activities while demonstrating a priority for children's safety and well-being.

The idea of becoming an Au Pair feels like an all-inclusive experience. I get to travel to a new country, speak a new language and learn new cultures and if throwing myself into a completely new environment in order to grow as a character doesn't work, I don't know what will. I already know that this experience will help me become a better me, because to detach myself from my usual daily routine will already be challenging on it's own. I will be able to teach myself on how navigate my life better, I will be given the opportunity to make new friends, and especially to travel. Throughout this experience I will be able to learn a lot from my host family, and I am really looking forward to have a harmonious bond with them. Learning more about the complex structure of life from different perspectives is beyond my comfort zone, but that'll never stop me from making these memories that I will treasure forever.

Experience

Despite being a Bruneian-Indonesian with the Malay language as my mother tongue, I am very fluent in English and I have an interest in English Literature. I am looking for a culturally-immersive and fun experience in a foreign country and the opportunity to learn about the way of life there from a different point of view. I am looking to immerse myself into my host family’s life and to hopefully be seen as an equal, while still maintaining the boundary of work and play.

This will be my first time as an Au Pair and I believe that I've done sufficient research and read enough testimonials to know I am confident that I will be ready to become an Au Pair in May 2021. I understand that I am expected to care and take full responsibility of the child/children during times the parent(s) are busy and to do some light housework revolving around the child/children. I have also done research about becoming an Au Pair during covid-19, and I believe that staying at home will give me the chance to really bond and get to know my host family. I have had successful experiences baby-sitting, and I do hope that my host parents have set good household rules and a disciplinary system with the children.
