Letter to the family

Hi there! My name is Gabrielle , and I am a 24 year old from the United States! Having worked as a nanny in the past, I know I would absolutely love a role as an Au Pair. I love love love being around kids; I feel like they keep me young and fun. As a current work and holiday holder, working as an Au Pair or Nanny would give me the security and stability that is often hard to come by while living abroad, and I would get to work a job that I love! I'm a very responsible and organized person, and I have often taken the role of a caretaker in my life, helping care for my 3 younger brothers while growing up (my youngest brother and I are 10 years apart, so I changed my first diaper at 10 years old!) I am also a huge believer that kids need to be kids and enjoy their childhood as much as they can, so I've got plenty of activities up my sleeve to use their imaginations and get creative and active. I'm easy-going and very flexible, able to adjust to new routines with ease.

Experience

When I worked as a professional nanny for 9 months, I learned a lot. For one, I gained a completely knew understanding of my own mother! It's definitely not easy to take care of children, let alone raise them, but it's so rewarding to work with kids! Working as a nanny gave me life-skills that I don't think I could've gained in any other role. The family I family I worked for was extremely busy, with both parents working in important roles with demanding hours. I was able to help them establish a routine for their kids and their life at home. In addition getting the two boys to and from school and caring for a toddler at home, I did a lot of housework, laundry, grocery shopping and cooking for the family. I was happy to help in any way that I could, and I would be more than prepared to do similar tasks in this role.

I would like to become an Au Pair abroad because I really enjoy meeting new people and learning about new cultures. I have lived abroad in the past with a host family in Chile when I participated in an exchange year in university. It was one of the best experiences I had traveling and living abroad because it allowed me to learn about a completely new culture in a way I wouldn't have been able to had I lived alone. So, I think working as a nanny abroad would allow me to learn about the Australian culture and the people in a way that I couldn't do working a 9-5 office job.
