--> tu te moques pas hein ! ^^
My name is Sophie and I am a French girl looking for a sweet family. I am 18, I was born on october 21st, 1989 and I am now in highschool for the last year studying Economy and social issues. I want to be a nurse later. I really want to become an aupair because it seems to be the perfect way for me to discover new places, met new friends and be able to speak English fluently, all of that in doing what I really enjoy to do : being with children. I went to Boston in August 2006 for 3 weeks in an american family and I really had fun with them, and we are still in contact. To my mind, the USA are the best country to live in as it is really an attractiv country with a lot of things to discover, to learn and with welcoming inhabitants. So I am very excited to meet you !!! I live in a beautiful city in North France called Nancy. I have been living there since I was born but I am now ready to discover new places.
I live there with my parents, Laurence a gyneacologist and Pierre, an office manager, my 15-year-old-sister who is in highschool, and my little black doggy (a Flat Coatted Retreiver). I have a 21-year-old-borther who lives in his own appartment in Paris, studying art and commercial. I am very close to my cousins (12-year-old-twin-girls ) who live not far from my home. I am really lucky as all my entourage support me in my choice to live in the USA for a year. I have some close friends who are both sad that I leave them and excited for me to live a such great experience.
About my personality, I think I am kind of warm-hearted young girl who likes taking care of others. I am open-minded and friendly, sociable and dynamic. I am quite family-oriented as I do the best to gather all family for special occasions and I really enjoy spending time relaxing in family. I like to do a lot of things and enjoy life as much as possible ! I enjoy a lot of sports : I do a lot of rollerblade, I swim, I like ski, water-ski and gymnastic. I also like shopping, attending to concerts and hanging out with friends. I know I am not flawless, as I can be a little bit shy and afraid of the unknown sometimes but I am really ready to try as much as possible !
I have a strong experience as a volunteer first-aid worker in an organization like the Red Cross in France and 3 diplomas so I know different ways to help people and children in difficulties as intensive care, rescue and help for taking medicine. I was also hired to work at a great summer camp for a couple of years now and I really enjoy life there. There are a lot of activities to do with kids like outings, friendly competitions or manual activities. I also got a certificate (called the BAFA) for this kind of job. I have a strong background with kids and particularly with taking care of several children in the same time as, as I said, I work in a summer camp and furthermore I lead a scout troop composed of 10 girls aged 7 to 10 and so I am used to coping with those situations where everything is upside down and when I have to find different acitivities to suit to everyone. I also baby-sit accasionally a sweet 4-year-old-girl called Eglantine and two big boys aged 3 and 7, Matis and Hugo. That is usually when their parents are going out so I am responsible for feeding them, bathing and putting them to bed. I have been taking care of my cousins who were preemie twins, since they were born and they are now 12. So I have could really see them grow up and change. In a general way, I like to make children realise things by themselves like performances, cooking (mostly chocolate cakes ^^) or doing arts and crafts with them, go to the playground, to the swimming pool, or to the museum. I really enjoy having simple moments with them like when I read them stories, I make them bathing or when I putt hem to
You can be sure that I will love your children as if they were my brothers or sisters. I really like children and I will do my best to be a good aupair for yours.
I hope to meet you soon and spend a wonderfull year with your family.
