Hi there! My name is Tom and I was born and raised in Johannesburg and I am looking for au pairing positions for families in The Netherlands or Ireland.
People are my passion, and my passion is people. I find it easy to get along really well with people of all ages, and I feel most comfortable in environments where people are free to express and share in ideas, feeding off each others experience and energy. I am a very openhearted person and gained a lot of experience in taking care of my amazing brother, James, who has Down syndrome, and from my volunteering work at orphanages and old age homes. In addition, I was project leader of the Novalis House Community Project. As a collective, we collected donations from people and businesses and did regular trips to a school for the intellectually disabled to interact with the children and young adults.
I have a love for writing and reading, and spend a lot of my free time writing songs, poetry and short stories.On most days, you'll find me either on the basketball court, boxing or running in the streets to keep myself fit.
Traveling is an important part of my life, as it has taught me and continues to teach a plethora of lessons relating to cultures, love, kindness and the strength of the human spirit. I deeply understand the importance of family life and hope to be a part of a loving family. I can't wait to hear all of your stories and am very keen to learn about a new culture and language.
