Letter to the family

My is Tabitha from Nairobi Kenya. Am 25 years old. I have a degree in economics from the university of Nairobi. I come from a family of 9. My parents are self employed. There run a small farming business.

In about a year or two I plan to pursue a masters degree, but I am yet to make up my mind concerning my future area of specialization. So, at the moment, I would like to take some time out of academics to have a different life experience, and to have time to calmly reflect on my future academic/professional orientation. To this end, I think spending a year abroad would be particularly interesting.

My first language is, of course, Kiswahili, and I am also fluent in English. I started learning English in primary school, and it was also the language of instruction in the secondary school I attended. I have in addition been taking courses taught in English at university.

I am looking for a live-in arrangement with a host family, that would be happy to have me stay with and work for them for at least 1 year. I would also prefer looking after children aged between 6 months to 13 years. Lastly, although I am quite flexible, I would prefer to have working hours that would allow me to attend day or night time language classes depending on the host preference.

I would be happy to have the opportunity to speak with you: to answer whatever questions you may have about me or my childcare experiences; to learn more about your family; your interests and to know more about what you expect from the au pair arrangement.

Experience

When it comes to child care experience, I have looked after children in both formal and informal contexts. In 2015, as part of my university studies in research, I spent a six month internship period working with children from Kibera slums in kenya. Among others, I provided after-school tuition to children aged between 5 to 10 years. I also organized for them and took part in recreational indoor and outdoor activities: we sang, danced, played games, role played, drew, painted, and narrated stories. We also visited the public library, the local animal park, went out on picnics and a camping trip.

I have also helped my parents look after my sisters since birth. Although my looking after them is now restricted to my university vacations, as a teenager, I was nevertheless much more involved in caring for them on a daily basis. In addition, my two younger siblings, also spend a lot of time playing with our neighbour's two children Grace and Collins ( aged 6 and 8 years), so from time to time I find myself in their ever animated company. I can comfortably say that I sincerely enjoy spending time with children.

I would like to become a AU Pair abroad so that I can explore other cultures. I also want to learn different languages.
