Letter to the family

Hello! I'm Mary Catherine and I would love to become part of your family. I'm currently pursuing a degree in accounting at the University of Mississippi in Oxford, Mississippi (USA). However, when I'm not studying or working, I enjoy activities such as trail biking, walking, yoga, going out to eat, DIY crafts, and more.
The most important thing in my life is my family. I have 6 amazing siblings that I am very close to. They live all over the United States and I am located in Memphis, TN. I am the 2nd youngest of the 7!
Another important factor of my life is health and fitness. At the age of 9, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Ever since then, I've learned what specific foods nourish our bodies to prevent flare ups, pains, and overall remain in great health! This is no way claiming that I am a nutritionist, I am not! I simply like to help my overall health by avoiding certain food groups. RA does not slow me down from daily activities, you may never even notice I have it! One of my favorite activities is biking. I love being active and getting myself moving for the day!

Experience

Although I have never had experience as an Au Pair, I have had hundreds of hours as a nanny and babysitter. During the summers, I take on the role as a full-time nanny. For the past 3 summers, I have cared for a family of 3 children, ages 5, 9, and 11. My responsibilities included waking the children and making breakfast, preparing lunches, entertaining throughout the day, laundry and light cleaning around the house, errands for the parents, etc. All of our activities had to be outside of the house. We went to the Memphis zoo, Botanical Gardens, The Children's Museum, any playground we could find, swimming, feeding the ducks, and so much more. Throughout those summers, I grew a bond with the children. I cared for them as if they were my own siblings and wanted them to always be safe and have fun!
During the school year, I normally do a lot more babysitting. Duties involved with this are picking children up from school, driving to ballet classes or soccer practices, preparing dinner, and making sure their homework is completed.
As I am coming to the end of my college career, I've realized I've never gotten to travel abroad and experience a unique thing like being an au pair. I've grown up helping families and I would just love the opportunity to help another family in unique places!
