Hello, my name is Marta, my friends call me Martinha, I'm 27 years old and I'm single. I am a calm and patient person, I love company for cooking, hiking, playing sports. I'm creative and interested in handicrafts, my parents are plastic artists and I grew up in an art environment, invented in their ceramic workshop.
I live in a house in a rural neighborhood of my city. My house is like a small place, we have a garden and we also have some animals, dogs, cats and chickens, and I love animals! In my house live my father, my mother, my older sister and me.
I have a degree in Civil Engineering from UNIVALI University of Vale do Itajaí, but I started my career after graduating in the business administration area. I started working very early, in high school I studied in the mornings and in the afternoon I worked in the same high school, assisted the teachers of kindergarten, taking care of children from 3 to 7 years, helping to do the homework. Later on when I entered college I started teaching math, fiction and chemistry to kids and teens in my free time. After I finished my studies, I worked as a nanny eventually, as a second job, to earn more money.
I am Brazilian, from the state of Santa Catarina and have never traveled abroad, but it is a great dream to be able to know new places and cultures. Although I never left my country, I lived for many years alone in another city, because my city is small and has no universities. After living 7 years away from my parents, I returned to their home, but I'm used to the distance.
I am interested in going back to school, first I would love to learn other languages ​​and then do a specialization in Civil Engineering abroad. I believe the best way to live in a new place is with the Au Pair Program because it connects you fully with a family and its customs. In addition children are more receptive than adults, more affectionate and like to talk about the new things they learn. Babysitting is a very good exchange for both sides.
I would like to live in Portugal because I speak Portuguese and it is a country similar to Brazil in climate and places.
Being an Au pair is a great opportunity and achievement for me. I would have the chance to travel and work with what I like! Taking care of children, helping with studies, taking walks, doing outdoor activities, cooking, teaching how to eat healthy foods, playing and having fun.
