Hello! I´am Estelle
My name is Estelle ! I’m 20 years old and I come from Switzerland.
I live with my family in a small village near Fribourg in the french part of Switzerland. We live in a big house that my parents built 20 years ago. We all live together with my parents and my older brother Arnaud who is 23 years old. My dad works as an electrician, my mom is a massage therapist and my brother is a mechanic. As for me, I did an apprenticeship as a house designer and then I would like to go to university to become an architect. I am also a pet-lover and I had several pets during my childhood but now I have only one cat.
I already have experience in childcare. Indeed, I worked one year as an au pair to learn German in Zurich (in the german part of Switzerland). I had to take care of two wonderful girls of 4 years old and 7 years old.
I had to wake the kids in the morning, prepare food for the kids, get them ready for school, taking them to and picking them up from school, helping with bath time, help with the homeworks, play with them, reading stories, doing dishes, laundry, making beds, vacuuming, do the shopping and much more.
I really loved this year as an au pair and that's why I really want to relive this experience in a welcoming family who really want to integrate me and make me participate in his family life.
My family and my friends would describe me as a trustworthy person, caring and patient with children. I love taking care of children and children feel it very wellt hat I love them. When I undertake something I go to the end and I give myself every means possible to succeed. I am very smiling, always there to laugh and very open minded.
During my au pair stay I would like to improve my knowledge in English but also to discover a new culture through my lovely host family and also enjoy to visit the region in which I will be. I really hope that my host family will integrate) me to her family and that she will make me discover their wonderful region and culture.
One important information, I have my driving license and I am used to driving in Switzerland so in various conditions such as snow or mountain roads.
At home I am used to help my mother with any kind of household duties. I like cooking, I would be happy to discover new recipes from your country and I also would love to make pastry with children, I always find that it is a wonderful moment. I do not have a particular diet, I eat everything and I always pay attention to a healthy diet.
I'm a sport junkie! I do fitness, football, I love running, hiking, spent time outdoor and I like doing a little bit of all kinds of sports and outdoor activities also with the childrens. I try to do sport 2 to 3 times a week. It’s important to me to play sports during my stay to meet young people of my age, if it's possible with my work planing. I also used to draw a lot (in fact that’s a part of my work, drawing houses) and I read as much as possible because I really love to learn new things and reading is the best thing for that.
I would also love to take a few hours of English classes at night or at another time of the day to really optimize my English learning.
