Elz’e van Rooyen is MATCHED!

Dear Family, My name is Elze van Rooyen I am a 18 year-old (female) South African Matriculant student. Although I currently live in South Africa, where I am one month short of completing my Final School year. Compared to other Cities in South, Benoni where I live is a small Town but also close to Johannesburg and the OR TAMBO Airport. I enjoy living on the Farm, but I also love going to the big cities and Malls available to us here. I come from a family of 4: My parents Elize (Teacher and owner of a Private School), and Anton (Project Manager at one of our largest Fibre suppliers in South Africa) plus my sister Inge (Currently in Grade 9). In about 2 years time I plan to pursue a Degree in either Teaching or Law, but I am yet to make up my mind concerning my future area of specialization. So at the moment, I would like to take time out of academics to have a different life experience, and to have time to calmly reflect on my future academic/professional orientation. To this end I think spending a year or two abroad would be particularly interesting and life enriching. My first language is, of course, Afrikaans, and I am also fluent in English. I started learning English in primary school, and it was also the language of instruction in the secondary school I attended. I have in addition been taking courses taught in English.
I am nevertheless aware that learning a language within a classroom context is by itself, incomplete. So, in order to really be at ease in Dutch, I feel that a cultural immersion would do me a lot of good. I am particularly interested in experiencing family life in Belgium of Holland, since it offers a cultural context that is undoubtedly different from mine. For this reason, I would very much like to find a nice family to live with and work for in Belgium of Holland. When it comes to child care experience, I have looked after children in both formal and informal contexts. Last year, as part of my Mother’s Private school in Early Childhood Development, I spent a six month internship period working in a children’s home in Benoni. Among others, I provided after-school tuition to children aged between 5 to 10 years. I also organized for them and took part in recreational indoor and outdoor activities: we sang, danced, played games, role played, drew, painted, and narrated stories. We also visited the public library, the local animal park, went out on picnics and a camping trip. I have helped my Family look after my Cousins since birth. Although my looking after them is now restricted to my School vacations, as a teenager, I was nevertheless much more involved in caring for them on a daily basis. In addition, My cousins’ children added to my list so from time to time I find myself in their ever animated company. I can comfortably say that I sincerely enjoy spending time with children. When it comes to leisure, I take pleasure in the simple things in life. I enjoy being
outdoors, being with my friends, going for walks, visiting places I have not been to, and reading a good book. I also enjoy painting and on dull or rainy days, I often propose drawing and painting activities to my cousin and sister and our neighbour’s children whenever they come for company. As far as preferences are concerned, I am looking for a live-in arrangement with a host family, that would be happy to have me stay with and work for them for at least 12 months. I would also prefer looking after children aged between 6 months to 10 years. Lastly, although I am quite flexible, I would prefer to have working hours that would allow me to attend language classes if possible. I would be happy to have the opportunity to speak with you: to answer whatever questions you may have about me or my childcare experiences; to learn more about your family; your interests and to know more about what you expect from the au pair arrangement. Thank you very much for your interest in my application! I look forward to hearing from you. Yours Sincerely, Elze van Rooyen
