Introduction to families
Dear Family, I spent a year and a half in the US as a live-in AuPair after matric. I got back from my extension year in Washington, DC in December’19. I have experience with children who are 3-11yrs old and can comfortably work with multiple children at a time. My responsibilities consisted of getting the kids up and ready for school, preparing breakfast and school lunches, driving to and from school and extra curricular activities, prepping snacks and indoor activities, dinner prep, bath time and also staying home all day with the youngest child.
In the time I spent as an AuPair I grew to become a woman that I’m very proud of. I’m punctual, consistent, responsible, honest and willing to work as part of a team. I’m very proactive and I’m great at coming up with activities for children. I’m also a great driver with US and South African driving experience on freeways and city driving. I think I’d make a great AuPair because I have gained skills in open and effective communication, I’m confident, proactive and very patient.
I’m a pretty active and sporty person. In school I played netball, soccer and track/field. In the past year I’ve been very into rock climbing, kayaking, paddle boarding and downhill skiing in the winter. I’m pretty creative and often sew my own clothes.

Una M has been our au pair for almost 2 years and she was incredible, she cared for our 3 year old child, unfortunately we had to move. Una is kind, respectful, detailed, has excellent judgement, organised and trustworthy. She has a positive outlook and works very hard. My family and friends have observed on how Una is with my child when I'm not around, that she is engaging directly, disciplines when necessary in a firm manner, reads and singing to my little baby. Una has done a lot for my child and family. She drove the kid to playdates and other activities Prepared lunch and snacks Engaging in appropriate activities- reading, singing, dancing, arts, visits parks, playing outside, being creative. I can trust Una with any task. She is confident, bubbly, committed and her love for people is beautiful. She's truly a professional, my child absolutely adored her "they were besties". She has an optimistic attitude and would recommend her for a beautiful family. I truly wish her the best in her journey. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Una became part of our family. She is a kind and thoughtful person, an excellent driver, and very good with children, young children especially. She and our three-year-old were particularly close. Una is reliable and organized. She's also a strong, smart woman, which is something I wanted to have for my kids to look up to. Una is introverted and does really well with regular check-ins to keep communication flowing. I hope you get the chance to work with her!
