Letter to the family

I am a 29 year old video editor with a love for children and the elderly. Although I have mostly worked in media, children have always been my first love.

I want to become an au pair because I believe that taking care of tomorrow's future leaders is an important job and one that should be done well. I want to care for the elderly because after a great life, one must have a smooth and relaxing rest, I would love to contribute positively towards that.

The candidate should host me if they are looking for someone who is warm and friendly. I get along very well with children because I've taken care of many of my nieces and nephews, and so I can rate well to kids. I also spend a great deal of time taking care of my grandmother who taught me to be kind and compassionate with the elderly.

I do not have a formal care giving qualification but I do have the experience. When I was in university, I baby sat and tutored part time. I was also a leader in a youth development program where we hosted dance, drama and writing lessons to primary and high school students.

My experience with the elderly is taking care of my 87 year old grandmother.

Experience

I have worked with children in different stages of my life. As a teenager I baby sat for neighbours who worked late hours. When I was in university, I baby sat and tutored after school and on weekends. When I started working, I babysat for a colleague who worked a late shift.

My experience with working with the elderly is taking care of my grandmother who had dementia.
