Hello! I´am Z
My name is Karen, I am 26 years old, I am from a small city in Colombia called Ibagué, which is near the capital of Colombia, and it is considered the musical capital of America, I think that is why I like To sing and dance I also enjoy reading, painting and hiking when I have the opportunity to do it. I have been practicing swimming since I was 2 years old and I have competed in my country different times, I love to swim.
I consider I am hard working, happy, loving, patient, humble person, I love to learn new things every chance I have, I love challenges, I am not afraid of changes and I respect others perspectives about life, for example in my family Some are Catholics, Christians and Mormons and I think the most important thing is to believe in God and be happy with our own way to be.
Also, I am a very cheerful person, I like to see all the positive things in my life but always with my feet on the ground. These years I have been exposed to different situations in my job that is why I am a person who can adapt to any kind of situation, I am very communicative, social and trustworthy person. I consider everyone has amazing things to offer and I like to see the good things about people.
I am a system technician and I am a professional in industry security, due to my studies I have been able to work for people welfare; For example I have worked in occupational therapy with a girl with cognitive disability problems, it was a difficult situation, but it helped me to understand how people with these kind of problems see life with different perspectives and take the best from life. After that I am willing to adopt a kid with any special condition.
I decided to become an Au Pair, because it is the perfect match between sharing my knowledge, my skills and my love for children and being in an experience where I also learn from others and grow up as a person, I am so excited for that . I love being with kids, because I like to learn many things from them. They teach me how to be loving, careful, and patient and so many other times, I become another kid too.
To become an au pair is also a great opportunity to share my past experiences as a missionary in Brazil and Colombia where I could share my time with kids, pregnant women, victims of violence and old people, where my main purpose was to make them smile , No matter what, I served them as a counselor, listening to their problems by giving them hope and tools to build a better life in their present and future.
For me, being far away from home, in other culture and language, helped me to realize all the families and children need to feel they are protected, somebody that makes them feel comfortable and confidence no matter what their needs are, even they were not Rich and did not have many commodities, they were always happy, I was never expecting luxuries, I just wanted that the families could feel they had a person who could trust in always, because I was going to be able to their kids and support their Necessities.
In my time as an au pair I would like to learn about other cultures, I think being exposed to a different environment would be enriching for me, but also for the people I will be able to share with, and also being able to share mine . I am a very family-oriented person. I would love to spend some time with my host family and feel as a member of the family. I would like to study and improve my English skills and why not to teach some Spanish to the kids too. I want to become a trustworthy person for the family and be a helpful hand at home. You will be sure to be an au pair, I will be willing to assist you with your family, because I am sure you will be part of my heart. I will love to meet people and learn from their culture, language and different perspectives about life, and show them my culture too. I want that together, I could share this beautiful experience where you let me be with your kids and learn from each other.
Besides this I must say that I have no allergy to any food or medicine, I do not smoke, I like mascostas, I love to study, I am an independent woman but I enjoy the company.
I hope you can read me, you like this introduction about me. I hope you meet me soon.
