Hi there dad, mom and children, Thank you very much for taking the time to read through my profile. My name is Natalie Willers and I am a 22 year old female. I was born in the city of Johannesburg, South Africa. I have dark brown hair and blue eyes. I used to live in a beautiful big house opposite a golf course and dairy farm. I remember when I was little how my friends and I would run down to the farm for milk and sweets! :) One of my most memorable holidays was visiting France for one whole month, inbetween visiting many other countries and cities as well. I currently live in a small town called Port Alfred which is in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. This year I want to au pair abroad and experience working and being around children full time and hopefully gain a little more knowledge as to what it is all about. I have au paired for numerous families. First family I au paired for was for 4 girls. From youngest to oldest; Alex 6, Sarah 8, Emma 13 and Rachel 16. I used to fetch the girls from school, make sure they were fed and bathed by the time mommy and daddy got home. During the holidays I would take them to the movies, beach, friend’s houses, organise parties and just have so much fun with them. Sarah has type 1 Diabetes so caring for her was very stressful at times, but I used to check on her regularly and made special meals for her which helped a lot. I must add that it’s not the easiest thing to tell an 8year old at a birthday party that she may not have cake... Fortunately Sarah and I had a very close bond so she trusted me when I said she may or may not eat or drink something. I love the girls and fortunately still get to see them often. I house sit and babysit them regularly. Family two was one little girl Taylor. I cared for her from three days old. I was fully responsible for her as mommy had to recover from her C-section and daddy worked full time. I took her for her checkups at the Doctor. I made purities for her and fed her. I bathed, played and stimulated her little mind. I took her for swimming lessons at a close by swimming school. I still see Taylor and often babysit her. Family three was more babysitting two children Lauren 7 and Ethan 10. I cooked for them and played board games, swam and had fun with them  I currently work for their mother in her business so I am lucky enough to still see them often. The fourth family I cared for was a 10 year old boy James, and a 13 year old girl, Kelsey. I used to fetch them from school, prepare their lunch, help out with homework and many other things. I also babysit for them regularly. The last family I have au paired for was two boys aged newborn to 15 years old. The oldest child is partially deaf so I had to remove and refit his hearing aids, take him to speech therapy as well as occupational therapy. I am also very excited to tell you that I was present during the birth of the youngest brother! It was so exciting! The mom had a home birth and only direct family and I were present. I was the first person to see him come into the world and it was truly the most memorable of all my experiences I’ve had while au pairing. It has been a wonderful journey so far and I miss the families tremendously!! I have babysat and have organised children’s parties, taken children to extra-mural activities and many more fun things. I also gave extra classes in the afternoons to two young boys with autism. (Unfortunately they have emigrated and I can’t get a reference from them) I really enjoy being around children especially the younger ones. I am a responsible, honest and reliable person. I also believe myself to be patient, caring and understanding when it comes to children, which in my view are the fundamental virtues needed for being a perfect au pair! I am great with children of all ages and I am a very active individual so I will keep your children busy at


all times. I can also help with homework and projects. I have attended CPR and first aid for children orientations and have a certificate of approval for each course, so you can be rest assured that your children are in safe hands. I want to get to know your children, embrace their talents and give them the love and attention they need when you are not there to do so. I wouldn't mind working extra shifts such as taking the kids and their friends to the beach, movies or even shopping! I love shopping!! Attending school functions to represent you is also fine by me. I have experience in taking care of children under the age of two, if your kids are very young I will happily assist with feeding, meal preparation, bath time, sleeping times and just basically keeping them entertained. I will make sure to put a lot of love and guidance into your kids’ daily schedules and get them and myself into a healthy living routine-something I have not had while being away at University. =) I have had a few years experience in driving my little cousins to and from activities so I know to take all the necessary precautions when doing so. I love reading, hockey, tennis, squash, golf and swimming. I enjoy going to movies and the beach, painting and drawing and cooking and baking-especially cup cakes, sponge cakes and muffins!! I am always up for a challenge and love learning new things, as everyday is an adventure to me. My friends and family are extremely important to me so spending time with them is a big must! In closing I would like to thank you again for taking your time and I truly hope this letter gives you all the information that you want or require for your au pair and I really, really look forward to becoming your next au pair!! Yours Faithfully Natalie Willers
