Introduction to families
Dear families, my name is Erin; I am 20 years old, born and raised in Cape Town. I am an energetic, patient and quiet individual (until you get to know me). I have an older sister and a younger brother and I feel as though this has given me a good grounding. I have a strong moral compass and value integrity, honesty and trust. Thus I am a very trustworthy person and always look at things from all angles. I am a very protective person and enjoy spending time with children and being able to make a difference. I think that it is important to encourage curiosity, extending our knowledge to the best of one's ability, embrace nature and trying to keep as healthy as possible. Although I am young and still have a lot to learn, I feel that I have a lot of knowledge and advice to share. I strive to be independent and to help people whenever I can. Children are so resilient and ambitious; being able to help them grow into the best possible version of themselves is a privilege. Leaving your child in someone else's care isn't easy and I'd like to be the person that could possibly make your life a little bit easier.
I am a very protective person and I feel as though I am at the perfect age where I'm old enough to be a disciplinary figure but young enough that I might be able to relate well to children and young teenagers. I strive to learn new things and be as healthy as possible and I think this may benefit your child/children.
I enjoy the simple things in life, I am not a major outgoing person; I prefer to stick to my small circle of close family and friends. I love to read and expand my knowledge (mostly with regards to science and nature). I have a passion for animals and helping others, I enjoy listening to music, going for walks, baking and sometimes experimenting with food especially with my specific diet. I grew up loving science and to this day I am an avid reader and love to learn new things, I hope that one day I will become a part of the healthcare community.

Erin has been an absolute pleasure to have working for us. We needed temporary help as we transitioned from one child to two and she contributed greatly towards creating a calm and organised environment during an otherwise challenging chapter. She is very reliable, hard working, enthusiastic, flexible and very good at taking constructive feedback and implementing changes where necessary. Our 3 year old son is very fond of her and she has also been very willing to help out as much as possible with our newborn. I would not hesitate to recommend Erin to any family.
