Karmia drew us in from the minute she started talking. Her very warm and engaging, genuine nature made us trust her almost immediately. She seems extremely mature for her age, and listening to her was even somewhat inspirational. We could sense that her desire to work with children comes from a very genuine place. She finds true joy in spending time around children and gets really excited about teaching them things and engaging in creative activities. Some examples she gave to us were making home-made playdough, building blocks, playing games in the garden, cooking/baking with kids, picnics, doing ball play or other sensory and motor skill-developing activities, playing dress-up, and the list goes on. She tends to avoid having children spend time in front of the TV and prefers to do something more adventurous or creative. She is also an excellent homework assistant. Karmia is confident that she can work with children of any age, from baby to teen, and what she doesn’t know, she will find out. She is a quick learner who is up for a challenge. Her patience and compassionate nature also place her in a position to deal with situations where there may be difficulties or special needs. We have a feeling that Karmia will be quickly adored by any family that chooses to let her in, and we happily recommend her for any au pairing positions.
