My name is Matina and I am a 23 years old. Although I currently live in Milan with my fiancé, I actually come from Athens.
I come from a family of four: my parents, Olga and Giannis, are self employed and run a small agrotourism business in Tithorea. I have a younger sister, her name is Ageliki. She is in her first year of Art school. If I were to describe myself in a few words I would say that I am caring, sporty, have a good sense of humor and am a hard worker.
In about a year I would like to start working as a photographer. To do so I need to upgrade my equipment hence I am looking for work to be able to put together the necessary funds and at the same time broaden my experience!
My first language is, of course, Greek, and I am also almost fluent in English. I started learning English in primary school and I continued practicing the language working in tourism in Paxos. In addition I have been taking courses in English at home.
I speak an intermediate level of Italian. I begun learning it in summer.
When it comes to my childcare experience, I have looked after children in both formal and informal situations. I have taken care children aged between 1 to 6. My duties usually included: organizing recreational indoor and outdoor age appropriate activities like learning songs, playing games, role play, drawing, painting and I always told them stories (I love Greek mythology!). We also visited the public playground daily and went out on picnics.
I have helped my parents look after my sister since birth. I have also spent a lot of time playing with my younger sibling and her friends, so I have found 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 from the simple things in life. I enjoy dancing and training, being outdoors, being with my friends and my family , going for walks, travelling or reading interesting articles and news. I also enjoy taking pictures, especially portraits. Did I already mention that I love to write? I like scripting, writing prose and fairy-tales. And last but not least I love animals, especially cats!
I would be happy to have the opportunity to speak with you, to answer whatever questions you may have about me or my childcare experience and to learn more about your family, your interests and to know more about what you expect from me.
