Hello everyone!

I'm new to this page, so I'd like to write something about myself that hopefully spikes interest and for people to maybe get to know me a little bit better as their potential future au-pair or caregiver.

I'm Sylke, 24 years old and currently residing in The Netherlands after a year abroad in Scotland (if you have never been there, trust me, go there it's absolutely gorgeous!) to pursue a career in Biomedical Sciences. Now, I want to have gap year, but fill that gap year with pursuing hobbies (read: piano, poetry and anything creative) to helping out others where I can, as either a au-pair or a caregiver.

The helping out others is something that is in my nature, as I perceive myself as a caring person. This led me to studying Social Sciences for which I have received a Higher National Certificate at the University of Nijmegen (in The Netherlands) subjects were psychology-related with a strong focus on the caring aspect. During these studies I've worked as a Health Assistent in the homeless facility, also located in Nijmegen. During those times, I've realised that even though, I'm not longer studying that course at the moment, my focus and nature lies within the caring department. Needless to say, I'd like to go back to it.

About me, I love to travel (and adventure) and I spend a lot of months being.. well... everywhere, especially less touristic places as I like to find out why its less touristic (and guess what, - i've liked every single one of those places!)
Furthermore I like meddling with foreign languages. In University I did a Russian Course, but unfortunately due to the pandemic the classes were prematurely suspended. I've learned myself a bit of Swedish, Serbian and Spanish and I can speak German too to a certain extent. I'm fluent in English having lived in Scotland, following English Courses and having a lovely Irish boyfriend who is residing in Switzerland (Solothurn) which is also where i'd like to reside as either a au-pair or a caregiver.

Furthermore, I love Poetry and even published my own book In The Netherlands full of poetry about anything that comes to mind. I'm into art, music, comedy and sport - basically into... everything.. sometimes I like to daring stuff like bungeejumping too!

As a person I am caring, patient and a good listener. I can be talkative, but also know when to be silent. I can spend a lot of hours doing my own thing when needed (as my hobbies might have given away)

Because of my experience and personality, I think I'd be a good fit for either roles and I'd like to introduce myself in real life come give that time! Thanks for reading and have a beautiful evening.
