Hello! I´am Carmen
I am 29 years old, very happy and easy going person. I am graduated in Social Communication and passionate about new technologies. I come from a family of 5: My parents, Deijair and Nadja, my dad is already retired, he worked in a plastic factory and my mother teaches voluntary classes in the neighborhood church. I have one brother and one sister, they are older than me. My sister is 34 years old and is Systems Analyst in Bahia development company. My brother is 32 years old and is video editor on the Band channel here in Bahia.
In about a year or two I plan to pursue a masters degree, but I am yet to make up my mind concerning my future area of specialization. So, at the moment, I would like to take some time out of academics to have a different life experience, and to have time to calmly reflect on my future academic/professional orientation. To this end, I think spending a year abroad would be particularly interesting.
My first language is, of course, Brazilian Portuguese, and I am also fluent in English. I started learning English in primary school. I have in addition been taking private english courses since I was 11.
I speak an intermediate level of Spanish. I begun learning it in high school and have been taking Spanish language classes at my university for the last year.
I am nevertheless aware that learning a language within a classroom context is by itself, incomplete. So, in order to really be at ease in English and to learn a new language as French, I feel that a cultural immersion would do me a lot of good. In March I had the opportunity to visit France and Geneva, and I really liked the experience. Hence my desire to have experience of French language. I am particularly interested in experiencing family, since it offers a cultural context that is undoubtedly different from mine. For this reason, I would very much like to find a nice family to live with and work for.
When it comes to child care experience, I have looked after children in both formal and informal contexts. As part of my university studies in social communication , I spent a period working teaching computer lessons for childrens.
I have helped my friends and neighbors look after their kids. I can comfortably say that I sincerely enjoy spending time with children.
When it comes to leisure, I take pleasure in the simple things in life. I enjoy being outdoors, being with my friends, going for walks, visiting places I have not been to, reading a good book, listening music, going to the movies and learning new languages.
