Ana Maria is a 31 year-old Spanish girl from Sevilla, a town on the Southern coast of Spain. After she finished high school, she atended different classes to improve her skills. She works as a chef assistant in a hotel; she studied for 1 year at a cook school.
She wants to come to England because she wants to improve her English. She thinks the best way of doing this is by being an au pair. She also likes children and enjoys spending time with them.
Ana Maria likes photography, socialising with friends, listening the music, cooking, going to cinema and surfing the internet. She has no preferences regardin the location.
She is a non smoker.
She has been looking after her 2 cousins aged 6 and 7 year old. She cooked for them, took them a bath, played with them, helped them with their homework, put them to bed; she usually looked after them from noon until the evening. Because they lived in a 3 stories house, they enjoyed playing hide and seek. Even though she doesn't have that much experience with children, she says she likes them and she is calm and patient with them.
I found her English to be fair/good. She understood most of my questions but sometimes had some problems answering in English and she was using Spanish. Her mother tongue is Spanish.

Ana Maria considers that she is independent, quiet, sociable, helpful, co-operative, warm hearted, flexible and positive attitude. From her family she learnt to be honest and to respect and be kind to other people.
