|Occupation:||Aupair ab Januar 2020|
My name is Lorena. I am 24 years old, and I’m currently working as a saleswoman, it’s a very dynamic work because I am constantly in contact with people of all ages.
I have 3 brothers, their names are Ricardo, David and Dante, they are 23, 9 and 2 years old. I live with my mother and my brother Ricardo, because my parents are divorced. My father is a lawyer and he remarried and had my other 2 brothers (David and Dante). I have a good relationship with them.
My mother is a saleswoman and housewife, she is 43 years old and is a good mother and she always supports me in my decisions.
I’m very close to my family, my grandparents come to my house very often and once or twice a month, we meet and play board games.
Guillermo is my favorite uncle, he is 7 years older than me so I see him like a big brother, he lives in Germany and is an engineer and practices his career there, he is my biggest role model.
I live in Puebla which is a big city in the center of Mexico. It is a city with a lot of culture, many important historical events happened here (like the battle of Puebla, May 1862). We have a great culinary variety, our city is famous for its Zócalo (a big town square), its architecture and its municipalities called “magical towns“.
My experience working with kids, began with my brother David (2010) when he was less than a year old, his mother worked on the weekends, so my Dad asked me for help him with David (taking care of him, taking him to sleep and feeding him)
In that time I learned many things such as being more patient and getting to practice housework involving children.
I take care of Ameli — she is the daughter of the vet ( the vet of my bunnies ). I care for her in the veterinary when her mother has surgeries. She loves to draw so we always are drawing or painting, sometimes we play with the animals ( Especially dogs because she loves dogs ). I like to be with her, she is very cute and she always draws things for me, I met her a one year ago, and in this time I see her like my little sister.
I’ve cared for the kids of my friends Itza and Manuel (they are 2 and 4 years old). I’ve spent a lot time with them, especially with Manuel, I taught many things, I helped him with his first words and practiced speaking exercises with him. I used to put on music, I read for him and repeated many words for him. Now he can speak better and that makes me happy, I see him like a nephew.
I care of the son of my friend Nancy when she goes to work, she is a waitress and sometimes she has events in the evenings, so she calls me and I go to care for her son Fernando, he is 2 years and is a very nice boy. I play with him, I teach somethings and I give him his dinner. I began to care for him last year 2018 , I go to care for Fernando twice or three times per month.
From August to December 2018, I worked in a kindergarten as a teacher’s assistant, my activities were to care for the kids, help them with their activities and taking care of them at their recess time. I took care of them from morning to afternoon, until the parents took them home again.
Now I would like to talk about myself. I’m a dreamer but I like to make those dreams come true. I consider myself constant and disciplined when I have a goal. I’m a funny person, I like to make jokes and I laugh a lot. In my free time, I like to go to the cinema, I like to cook specially desserts, I like to watch Netflix, I like to watch sports and support my favorite teams. I play videogames and sometimes go out with my friends. Also I love taking care of my pets which involves the cleaning of their stalls and the feeding and keeping them clean and safe.
I love the sports, all my life I did, my favorite sport is football, yoga and wrestling (I like to watch it and practice it also).
I’m a wrestler and I started 7 years ago, I’ve been semiprofessional in this, I’ve had the opportunity to meet a lot of different people, cities and lifestyles.
I’m also an actress, I took an acting course in which I had different classes (dancing, singing, art comedy and many more). I consider art something essential in my life, because with it I can express my feelings and get to know what others feel too. I like painting, I have a lot paintings in my house ( I make oil paint )
I decided to start this process, because I want know more about the German culture, but not as a tourist (in April I was a month travelling in Germany), I want to know it from the center of a family, learning its customs and its way of life, living as a german lives. And the reason I chose to go as an aupair is because over time I’ve gained patience and I like it a lot be with kids and care for them. For me it is not a job, because you do something that you like, you don’t see it as a job at all, you see that like a possibility to gain experience.
It is a challenge, adapting to a new country, customs and rules, but I’m motivated and excited, and I give everything of me, to make this happen. It will be something great not only for me, for the kids and family too.
I hope to have news from you soon, I send my best wishes remaining at your full disposal for what is necessary, thank you for your attention and I am looking forward hearing from you very soon.
I will be glad to provide further information.
Greetings from Puebla – Mexico
