Letter to the family

Hey lovely people! It´s Sofia from Finland writing here:

Who Am I?

I am Finnish by blood but by heart I consider myself as world`s citizen.♡

I live at the moment in Vantaa, which is a city close to Helsinki. Originally I am from small town called Seinäjoki and would say that although I live in big city, I will always be country girl. One of my favorite sayings is if you never try, you will never know, that´s why we should always take risk.

Why I want to become an Au Pair and Caregiver?

Little bit of the background, I worked over 3 years for international travel agency called TUI in different destinations around the world and my job roles were mostly as kids club host, this happened in 2016-2019. I worked from 3 years old to 15 years old daily in high standard kids clubs by arranging different and exciting activities in the holiday resort like mini discos, drawing or games in the pool. Also recently I have gained experience by working with elderly people in care home.

I am studying at the moment to become a registered nurse and by having the experience to work with children already and taking care of elders, I have understood where I want to specialize with the studies. Therefore the experience as au pair would be very appreciated and valued. Not to forget the fact that I love working with children and elderly!

Why the candidate should host me?

Usually I get described as very lively person, who has great visions and loves good conversations. Would say I consider myself as good mannered and open minded person. I have good social skills and I believe in honesty and good morals. Candidate will get above all that a funny, caring and trustworthy nanny to take care of your loved ones.

Why I qualify for the position?

To my age, I have gained very valuable work experience internationally related to taking care of others and working with people from all ages. I have replaced teachers since last August in schools and this is what I have done along side my studies.

Experience

I am studying to become registered nurse and I have worked previously in care home where I take care of elders basic needs such cleaning, changing diapers, talking and making sure they are in safe environment in the care home and arranging different activities.

The biggest reason why I enjoy working with elders is their lifelong wisdom. There is always something to learn from them! I think we all want to be taken care well when we grow old and I want to be there to make their days happy and bright.
