Letter to the family

My name is Larissa, I’m Brazilian and I’m 27 years old, I've been living in New York as an au pair for 1 year and 9 months. I've had 2 amazing host families, where I had the opportunity to take care of adorable and energetic children, currently I'm taking care of three kids (10, 10 and 7) but I have experience with many ages, especially babies.

I'm a very warm and playfull au pair, besides that I can say that I’m a very excited, patient and responsible person. I have many different experiences even before becoming an au pair in the USA, in Brazil I used to take care of Manuela, Pedro and Mariana. I also had extra jobs as volunteer reinforcement teacher at school and as a children caretaker in children Buffet.

I've been having a wonderful time in the United States and I'm grateful to this country that provided me so many good experiences, specially my host families and most recently had provided me the covid-19 vaccine.

Experience

I’ve always loved working taking care of children, I truly think that it is a gift to see the world through their eyes. I started to work as nanny very early, I was about 14 years old and I toke care of children of the building that I lived. I have already worked as a children caretaker in children Buffet, it was an amazing experience I had the opportunity to meet many children of many ages, we played a lot in ride and attraction in the Buffet. After that I finished my university I took care of Manuela, she was about 1 year, I took care of her during the vacation, we had a lot of fun, she likes to play with dolls, she also like to watch cartoons and listen to stories, she is very animated, smart and very sweet. In 2017 I had the opportunity to volunteer as a reinforcement teacher at school, I taught children from 11 to 16, that experience was crucial because I was able to develop my side as a teacher and my love for children only increased. In August 2017 I started to taking care of my neighbour’s son Pedro, I took care of him in the weekdays, Pedro likes to play with anything that involves water, he also really likes to stay in the yard playing outdoors, he is a friendly, obedient and kind child.

In 2019 I came to the USA to work as au pair, in my first host family I took care of Davis and Eiden, they were 3 yo and 13 mo when I arrived. I used to prepare the meals (such as breakfast, lunch, dinner and some snacks during the day), I drove them to school and to playdates, I took them to parks, farms, playgrounds, we loved to enjoy the spring/summer days outside, we played a lot together and during the afternoons we used to watch Davis's favorite movie or tv show of the moment. I was also used to do their laundry, bathe them, put the younger for naps, sometimes I used to do bed time too.

Currently I take care of three kids, Juniper (10), Niko (10) and Cormac (7), here I'm always helping my host parents to control the kids's schedule and make it works in the best way for them, I help preparing them to school, helping them to prepare their lunch boxes, walking them to school and take them to the extra activities. I also help with the laundry, dish washer, I usually prepare the meals (lunch, dinner).
