Hi, let me introduce myself first,
My name is Ilse and I am 16.5 years old. I live in the Netherlands. I am in my final year of HAVO at secondary school. I am a spontaneous girl and I really like to work with children. Unfortunately, I am only able to start in September 2021. But I'm already looking around for families to work for as an au pair next year. I will be 17,5 years old then.
Before I will study social work at the HZ University of Applied Sciences in Vlissingen in 2022, I would like to gain more experience by working with children and families. I also want to see more of the world. So when I finish my exams in 2021 I am taking a gap year and I hope to find a nice family where I can work for about 11 months as an au pair.
In the past 3 to 4 years I have gained a lot of experience with children and working with children. I take a lot of care of children from friends and families from our church. They are different families with children between 0 and 12 years old. I am often told that the children really enjoyed my visit and that I look forward to babysitting again.
I don't really have standard hobbies. I like to make spontaneous plans to do fun things with friends. I also really enjoy cooking.
In addition to babysitting, I have been working for a fruit-growing company for 3 years. There I work with dear colleagues who I can laugh a lot with. Many of those colleagues are seasonal workers and come from the Czech Republic. I speak a lot of English with them.
I am very curious about what comes my way,
Dear greetings Ilse
