||Dear host family
My name is Sasondezwa ( my nickname is Sondy) I am 28 years old from South Africa, currently residing in Sandton. I am a fun, loving and caring person, passionate about childcare and travelling. I have worked as an au pair in America for a year and half in Columbus Indiana, taking care of one 11 year old boy, and in Rye New York, taking care of 6 children aged 6-18 years. I then worked on board Disney Cruise Line fantasy for 4 and a half years, I supervised(together with other counsellors) 300-800 children) playing games with them and helping them enjoy their Disney cruise ship. After that I work in Holland for a family with 3 children aged 5-8 years. The next year I worked as an au pair in Belgium with children aged 4-14 years in my first family, then twins aged 7 months, 2 and 4 years. In South Africa i taught at a Montessori school, caring for children aged 4 months -18 months. In New York I taught at a Montessori school(age group 3-6 years) and au pair for a family with two children aged 2 and 4 years.
Through out all these years I have enjoyed being a part of the family and the children s lives, I have enjoyed watching them grown. Personally I have enjoyed growing and evolving, exploring and meeting new people and going to places I have always wanted to visit. I have truly enjoyed meeting new people and making life long friends.
About my personal life I grew up with out a father, he passed on when I was 7 years old, so I have lived with my mother and my brother. I have always I loved the mind, why people think they way they do or do the things they do, however at the end of my high school career I wasn’t sure what I wanted to study. I helped the school out reach program every Saturday at school and enjoyed being a part of young childrens lives, I then went on to being the head of the schools outreach program and school prefect in my last year at school. When I moved to the USA in 2011, I knew I wanted to just travel for the rest of my life and that has been what I have been doing. I am a very open person, I love to talk and get to know people.
