Sylvia’s Bio

To whom it may concern;
I have had the good fortune in life to grow up in more than one culture, my family is Polish where we lived for a long stretch of time.I had a great opportunity of attending Polish schools, where I learned the beauty of speaking and writing fluently in Polish language. My husband is Bulgarian, and we have traveled to Bulgaria on several occasions. Consequently, I felt it is my duty to learn this unique and intriguing language, today I’m a fluent speaker and writer of English,Polish and Bulgarian. Being embraced by these colorful, and sometimes very disparate cultures has given me an ability to relate to people from many different backgrounds.
I know what it feels like to recently arrive in what seems like a new world, the cultural shock is incredibly immense, yet i find it easy to find common ground with the people around me quickly. I was born in Chicago, nevertheless my parents decided to raise their family in Poland. I moved back to United States at age of 15, not knowing how to communicate in English. Despite being new to this country, and to American way of schooling, I excelled in my studies and earned academic achievements. While completing my high school education, I became financially independent at age of 18, and I have lived on my own since then. I have worked full time while continuing to pursue my education, I completed an associate degree in liberal arts. Furthermore, I’m very passionate about overall wellbeing as well as fitness. This passion prompted me to complete certification as a personal trainer.
Working for a wonderful family of five for the past seven years has been an unforgettable experience, and I will always cherish this phenomenal adventure.I have extensive professional experience as a nanny with flawless references available upon request.While working full time I have excelled in my studies and obtained acceptance to highly competitive nursing program in Harper College. Unfortunately, as the nursing program is very challenging and time consuming I’m unable to continue my full time work with The Family. Currently , I'm actively seeking a part time position.
