Introduction to families
Dear future host family My name is Nompumelelo (Mpume) M and I’m 22 and will be 23 when I’m with your family. I am so excited that you chose to view my profile and hopefully will pick me as your future au pair. As an au pair what I am looking for in a family is a home full of love, laughter, joy and companionship I know and understand that families aren’t always perfect but the goal should always be to be happy and joyful and as your au pair I plan on add to that joy and creating an environment that is calm peaceful and fun. I’m was working as an pair so I have a really good idea of what is expected of me but every single family is different and I would love to learn and get to understand what your needs as a family are for example what are your hobbies as a family and what are you looking for in a au pair. How do the kids spend their time and what interests them? I would love to know all these things because as there au pair I will be spending a lot of the time with the kids and I think it’s important to always set time out for fun and play (this of coarse will happen after I’ve helped with homework and snack time) I can’t wait to hear from you and I hope and we are an amazing match but most importantly can build a relationship that will last a life time. Kind regards Mpume
Becoming an au pair I love working as an au pair because I get to work with children everyday it warms my heart to know that I am a positive role model in a child’s life and that I can teach them how to be self sufficient, independent and responsible people. I love having the responsibility of taking care of someone besides myself and be be a friend, older sister and caregiver all at the some time. It makes me feel good as an au pair to know that I’m helping the parents with creating a positive environment for there kids by helping and working with them to mold the kids to becoming amazing humans.
Free time I enjoy reading books my favorite book so far has been the book of joy it’s a insightful book with two very inspiring international religions leaders narrating the book. I also enjoy taking a walks with my host kid and going out birding (looking for different birds that are found in Washington) we enjoy finding them and making a bird list with all the birds we have seen that day it is both fun and educational it’s something we both enjoy and bond over (our favorite bird for the season is the blue jay). When I’m not working I enjoy hiking with my friends one of my favorite hiking places to go is mount Rainier it’s really beautiful and the walks are breath taking, I am an environmentalist and that means I’m always conscious about what is good for the environment and what we can do to save it and to make this earth a better place with the knowledge I have acquired throughout the year I plan on sharing it with my future host family and hopefully we can work on project such as starting a little garden. I enjoy art after high school I studied interior design so I love to plan and draw buildings, interior spaces but when I’m not thinking as a designer I am a visual artist I enjoy spending time at art galleries and museum just learning about different mediums and artists. This is something I love to share with my host kid teaching him about art and doing art projects together hopefully this is something I can do with my future host kids. While I was living in Seattle during the winter months it’s really rainy so I can’t do much outdoor activities so when I can’t go out hiking I spend my time putting together puzzles alone or with my host kid or watching movies (not everyday but on most days) I enjoy baking although I haven’t baked in a while baking is something I did with my mother and it was always really fun to have a delicious treat after all that work. My host family and I love to travel around the country so far we have been to New Mexico, Alaska, California, New York, Nevada, Minnesota and Utah our trips are always really special to me but the one trip that stood out the most was when we traveled to Alaska we went kayaking, birding my host kid and I enjoyed playing at the beach collecting rocks and shells and spotting bears, whales and wild animals from our house it was both fun and we had a lot of bonding time together.

Au pair

Mpume has worked for my family as an au pair in the United States through the Cultural Care Au Pair program for the last 17 months. Upon her arrival to our family, she very quickly earned the trust and love from my 6 year old son. She is extremely patient and very kind. She and our son always have a fun time together. I feel completely comfortable entrusting our son to her care; Mpume is conscientious, responsible, and trustworthy. Our household is extremely busy at times; she is very flexible and has adapted to meet our family’s needs well. She is very considerate. We have been so lucky to have her work with us and to be a part of our family. She originally planned to be our au pair for a year, but we were so happy to have her as our au pair that we asked her to extend and stay an extra year! We have had many au pairs over the years, and Mpume is one of the best au pairs we have ever had. I believe Mpume would be an excellent au pair in your program, and hope you will strongly consider her application.
