Letter to the family

Hi there! My name is Madeleine, although my friends and family call me Maddie. I am a young woman in my early twenties studying in college and working as a part time server. I have experience with first aid training and my first semester of college I was a health science major, before transferring to the psychology department. I am passionate about education although I feel as though I need a break from my everyday life here in Vancouver. I am fit and active and looking to expand my horizons! My hobbies include exercising, playing with my high maintenance Australian Shepherd, and I have a passion for cooking new recipes. I have excellent communication skills and I love spending time with kids and all animals. I was born and raised in Vancouver and I am looking to experience the culture of a new city and country. I love to learn new things and explore new and different experiences. I have plenty of experience taking care of my cousins two daughters, aged three and seven, and would love the opportunity to meet and care for your family!

Experience

Although I do not have any formal experience as a nanny or au pair, I possess many qualities I believe would make me excel in such position. When I was 13 I worked for a family that went to my elementary school. I would pick up their daughters, aged 8 and 10, from their classrooms and walk home with them. At their house I would make them an after school snack and help them with homework until their parents arrived home from work in the evenings. I began babysitting for my neighbors two children, under 1 year, and 3 years old, when I was 14 years old. I have experience taking care of children from a wide range of ages.
In 2017 and 2019 I took part in two volunteer trips to Guatemala. The trips were through a non profit organization called Hope of Life International. The trips were fully funded thru the collection of donations. I raised funds thru bottle drives, selling chocolate bars and reaching out to the people in my community. In 2017 we raised enough funds to build a two room school house in a small remote village called Piedra Blanca. In 2019 we built a home in another village outside of Cabañas for a family in need. Although I did not contribute to any manual labour my responsibilities included creating and leading games and activities for the children of these villages while others from our group and from the village worked on building the new facilities. On both trips we also had a registered nurse alongside the group who provided medical support to those in need.
As an only child I learnt at a young age to be self sufficient and learnt many valuable skills that I would love to pass on to others. I thrive in fast paced environments where communication is a necessity through my many years of experience in the restaurant industry.
