My name is Carlien. I turn 17 years old in August 2019. I am a girl living in The Netherlands. My hobbies are playing field hockey, meet up with friends and babysitting.
My expectations are that I am taking care of a few children and cook for them, play with them inside or outside and have fun together. Next to the tasks as Au pair, I would like to explore social life, ideally with doing sports like hockey or a course for a couple of months.
As I have had 8 years of English classes at school my English is okay. I now would like to improve my English speaking and understanding to a more fluent level. Not with a language course, but through practicing English all day with native speakers. I am available between August 2019 and August 2020.
My side job has been babysitting in my neighbourhood. The kids I take care of range from 6 weeks up to 13 years old. I am babysitting since I was 11 years old, so that is 5,5 years already. I have a kind of babysit centre with around of 14 addresses.
In June I will pass my final exam on the high school. After my final exam I am going to have a gap year. In that gap year I would like to become an Au pair and to improve my English.
In August, I become 17 years old and from the begin of September I am available for a year of Au pair
I am living in The Netherlands with my parents and my brother. For holidays we travel abroad at least 2 times a year. I have been around Europa, Africa, Asia and North America.
After being an Au pair I will start my university studies in 2020.
