My name is Renicia and I am 22 years old. I was born in Flensburg, Germany but my parents are originally from Sri Lanka. My mother tongue is Tamil and I can speak it fluently. Furthermore, i speak English and i have been learning French for almost 7 years now.
Coming to my childcare experiences the main point is that i'm the oldest child in the family so i learnt to take care of my siblings when my parents were not at home. I also know how to share things with people and conduct myself in terms of care.
In the year 2013 i start to do a voluntary year in a nursary with kids between the age of 2 to 6. In my voluntary year i had the opportunity to gain new experiences with small children - i learned a lot. For example to change baby's nappy or to how to feed them properly. I truly loved and enjoyed to play with them and also to be an exemple to them. To watch them growing up was absolutely admirable for me. I had the opportinity to work there for one more year, in which i had the opportuntiy to take the position of the team leader for the little children care takers, which i really enjoyed.
To answer the question, why I want to do a year as an Au pair, is simple. First of all I want to be more confident and independent. I would like to ge to know the culture of England. I have lots of experiences with children and love to be part of their life. I love to teach, play and laugh with them. I also would like to see how much they develop, during my stay. After my year as an Au Pair, I would like to work as a stewardess. That's my dream job as I love to travel and see the world. I love to learn foreign languages and meet people from different countries. This au pair year, would help me also to improve my English skills. I am really looking forward to it.
