Letter to the family

Hello there,

I'm Shiru, a 21-year-old graduate looking for an au pair opportunity.

I grew up as the eldest of a family of 4 and regularly took care of my siblings. Throughout middle and high school, I regularly volunteered at an orphanage. My tasks were varied and ranged from childcare for age groups between 4 to 7, to helping out in different departments: laundry, kitchen etc. During my first and second year at university, I babysat for different families. This involved picking the children up from school, helping them with homework, cooking dinner and putting them to bed. I also kept a dialogue diary for the parents. I am multilingual (French, English, Spanish, Swahili) and would love to share my passion for life, dancing, singing and art with your children.

I am currently taking a gap year between my bachelor's and Masters degree and would love to work as an au pair while discovering a new region and or country.
