Sport is one of my favourite free-time activities, running, skiing, scuba diving but especially swimming. I was a competitive swimmer from the age of nine to 16. I swam for the Team Saarland and won the German Championship with my team. My two years in a boarding school prepared me for my life after leaving home for studying or being an au pair in Canada. I learned discipline, stamina, and to be responsible for me and others. The reason I want to be an au pair in Canada is, that I visited Canada when I was a young girl and I fell in love with the country, the landscape, the people and the language. I’m looking forward to meet you and your family, hope to see you soon!”
