Letter to the family

Hi there!
My name is Olivia (Liv), and I am 21 years old, from Manchester in the UK (aka the greatest city in the world!). I am currently studying to be a primary school teacher (the British elementary) at Postgraduate/masters level, and have an honours degree in Religion, Philosophy and Ethics. I absolutely love teaching; it may be hard work, stressful, and extremely admin-heavy, but the children make every single second of stress worthwhile. I also volunteer for Childline, a counselling service for children up to the age of 18, on the phone or on 1-2-1 chat online. It is the best thing I have ever done, and through this I have dealt with situations I hadn't even dreamt of before.
On a lighter note, I am a huge musical theatre lover, and have been performing since I was 9 years old, right up to university, where I was a member of the musical theatre society and performed a number of times with them. This skill is key in my opinion when working with children, as it allows you to really connect with them and have fun without being self-conscious or embarrassed!
I would love the chance to be an Au Pair, as I love children and I am a hugely caring, maternal person. I am the oldest of 8 cousins and have taken care of them for as long as I can remember; they're like siblings to me. I think it is simply in my nature to care and nurture, which is why I love teaching so much as well!

Experience

Although I am lacking in specific experience as an Au Pair/ nanny, I have a surplus of experience in looking after and caring for children, through my own family and babysitting, as well as being a teacher and a Childline counsellor. I think I understand the emotional and physical needs of children extremely well, and am equipped to deal with them to a high standard.
