Dear family,
My name is Ofelia, I'm 19 years old (will be 20 when I start working) and from Denmark, where I've lived most of my life. I am currently studying at an international (boarding)high school in Norway called United World College Red Cross Nordic.

When I was a kid, my older cousin would often babysit my sister and I, and she is a big part of the reason why I want to be an au pair/nanny. Her ability to completely immerse herself into our universe, to just accept the (sometimes questionable) logic that we applied to our games, was absolutely amazing, and made us feel so safe, respected and valid.
Years later, when I started babysitting my neighbors daughter, I treated her the same way my cousin had treated me all those years ago, and this made me realise that it's really an exchange - that a kid allowing you into their magic world, is as giving for you as it is for them.
This is why I want to become an au pair/nanny.

The reason I would be good at it is because I'm patient, empathetic and good at not taking myself too seriously. As mentioned before I have some prior experience, so I know that those qualities are very helpful when it comes to kids.
Other than that my high school is a boarding school, so I know what it takes to live very close with other people (I currently live in a five person room), I make a great potato pizza (and am also very good at following a recipe), I can help with homework, I'm easy to live with, I love children's movies and can make sure that your kids get a good taste in music; all very important qualities in my opinion!

Many hugs from Ofelia. :)

Experience

As mentioned before I've babysat my neighbors' young daughter from when she was just a couple of months old. I'm also an older sister, so taking responsibility for others comes naturally to me. :)
I've also worked at a bakery/café, as a telemarketer for a Danish NGO called Children's Welfare and I've spent a year as a fulltime volunteer for a Danish student organisation.

In terms of why I want to be a an au pair/nanny abroad: I believe it's a very unique opportunity to get to know a country, or a city, in a way you couldn't by just renting an apartment and getting a job.
I also really want to learn German, and this seems like such a good way to do that!
