Hello! I´am Fernanda
Hello dear host family
My name is Fernanda, but my friends and family call me Fê. I am Brazilian; I was born and have always lived in Guarulhos, the second largest city in the state of São Paulo.
I am usually described as outgoing, friendly, fun to be around, hardworking, kind, honest, easy to work with, and dedicated.
I usually spend my free time watching movies and series, studying languages (that I love, I also speak a bit of Spanish and I started to learn Dutch),I study on my own, watching movies and series, listening to music, reading books and magazines. I also like going to the gym, riding a bike or walking, going out to take pictures, visit friends, go to the cinema or stay at home with my family talking and cooking together.
About my experiences with children. I took care of a girl, 3yo to 6yo, and I must say I made a friend for life. We had always a great relation (actually we still have, because whenever possible we talk by phone or Skype). Lívia is a lovely girl, delicate, smart, fun and polite. I helped in homework; I fed her, giving her baths. We loved dancing, tell stories and make theaters, play with dolls, ride a bike, go to the playground and cook some desserts together.
I also took care of a boy from 9mo to 2yo, I was responsible for help with his laundry, cooking his meals, giving him baths and everything co-related to him. Arthur is a very energetic, smiling and lovely boy and we had a wonderful time together.
I work as a volunteer in two NGOs, the first one is the TETO that takes Educational Programs for Children, and helps adults to return to society. There we took care of a lot of children from 5yo to 12yo. It's being an incredible experience, because we teach them things about the world and show that they can and should come out to know what is beyond the borders.
The second one is the HAMBURGADA DO BEM that in a Saturday or Sunday of each month takes lots of fun, plays and good food for children in needy communities.
We volunteers learn a lot from them and they reciprocate us with endless love and gratitude. And there is nothing better than to feel all the love that overflows those children.
I decided to become an Au Pair because I am very comfortable with children, and I believe that I can provide the perfect amount of support for the right family.
I am an open-minded, liberal person with a professional work ethic and a passion for learning from others and teaching others..
I wanna immerse myself in a new Culture and to learn a new language. I want to know different places and the European way of life in your family, which will make part of my life and it will be unforgettable! Certainly we have a lot of good ideas and experiences to exchange.
If you liked my profile and/or have questions to ask, do not hesitate and send me a message.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
see ya! =)
Ps.: I already have a contract with Travel Active agency, in accordance with Dutch law. And I am available to start from June / 2017.
