My name is Elif Simsek and I am from Istanbul, Turkey. I am finishing my first year in Yale University and I am a prospective Economics and Global Affairs major. From mid-June to end of July, I will be interning at a consulting company in Shanghai, China. However, it is an unpaid internship and given that I am a financial aid student in Yale, I need to earn an income to cover my living expenses and transportation for the duration of the time I will be in China. I am looking for a job for a month long and that would fit my current skillsets. I have two younger siblings, a sister who is now 13 and a brother who is 10. As their eldest sister, while my parents were working, I would take care of them after school and full-time during every summer. Because of our financial difficulties as Read more a family, I filled in the gap as a nanny and honestly, it has been the most rewarding experiences in my life. Over this seven years of experience with my siblings, I learned to cook, do laundry, run errands, figure out children’s needs, in addition to treating kids with care and love and just making sure that they did not feel abandoned or lonely during their parents’ absence. If you accept me to your home and place the trust in me to attend your children, I can assure you that I will just not be their nanny, but their big sister like I was to mu siblings and make sure your children enjoy their time with me and grow intellectually as well.
