Letter to the family

I’m Lauren and I am a student at University of Cape Town, however am taking the semester off and am traveling the world a bit! I want to experience living in a different country for a while and I think it would be incredible working with and helping others while doing that. I was just in Paris and am currently in Greece and love Europe. Next year I plan on studying abroad and transferring credits. I have an aupair and tutoring job currently, ages 6 and 8, and adore them and love spending time with me. It is incredibly important to me to be able to connect with the kids and make them feel as comfortable as possible with me. I know how to discipline while trying to ensure they still enjoy spending time with me. I have also worked with older kids between the ages of 13 and 16, however more as help in school subjects and proper education. I am very easy and likely capable of doing whatever the family desires or needs.

About me

I absolutely love traveling. I love my work I’m currently doing with children and I love helping my grandpa around his old age home. I spend a lot of time in the ocean or walking and hiking. I am very sociable and love being around people and forming meaningful connections. After working abroad, I hope to study medicine in Australia or Europe and hope to be able to experience the life of living away from what I am used to in Cape Town.
