Darling Jean L. Denden !Placed!
Dear Host Family,
My name is Darling Jean Denden, but my family and friends used to call me Darling . I am 23 years old from Baybay, Leyte, Philippines. I finished Bachelor of Science in Business Administration major in Marketing Management at the University of San Carlos. I am Responsible, with initiative, hardworking and fun to be with especially when you know more about me.
I am very close with my parents and 3 siblings but I grew up at my grandmother’s house with my younger siblings and cousins. Where I learned to do households chores because I and my cousins have cleaning schedules every month plotted by our aunt. It may sound work but for us it’s our bonding time, we helped each other in our assigned task. We also help our elders on birthdays and fiesta preparations, like chopping lots of ingredients and cleaning the house. My father was a Plant. Technician at Philphos fertilizer, Inc. at Isabel ,Leyte and he only comes home every weekend. My Mother is a house wife and a Barangay official in our barangay .She holds feeding programs for malnourish kids and Monthly check for the elderly in the barangay. At the early age, I developed my sense of responsibility for the other people especially when our youngest sibling came. Because as the eldest daughter I am expected to help my mother takes care of my younger siblings. Whenever I don’t have class , I would baby sit my brother (Dodge) my duties where make baby formula, put him to sleep ,change diapers and bathe and dressed him. Years had passed, I went for college and live with my Cousin Jingle & my niece Alfea . Every weekend I would babysit my niece, we would play pretend like doctor and patient. Help her take a bath and dressed, help prepare her meals. Two years after I come to Cebu for school cousin again became pregnant with her second baby, then came my nephew (phil john) Like my niece I also help their mother my cousin on taking good care whenever I have a free time. When I graduated from college and was still looking a job here in Cebu, I used to tutor my niece on her studies. The Idea of becoming an Au pair is through my aunt. Because I love being around and had the patience with kids. And also dreamt of travelling around the world and learns other countries cultures and beautiful places. As well as, share the culture and traditions here in the Philippines to my Host Family.
I’m love listening to music, well, I don’t to painting and sketching tuff but I do DIY’s craft and scrapbooking. My ideas of DIY’s come from watching you tube. I love reading books at my free time. I am not an expert cook but I can cook simple Filipino dishes which I learn from my aunts and Is willing to learn. In addition, I know how to ride a bicycle.
Dreaming to travel around the world , to visit other country and experience their culture , tradition ,explore their place and meet new friends in the process. I am very blessed to have a family that is so support of me in every decision I make in life. Any part of Europe is in my top list of places that I want to visit and explore. For me , Being an Au pair will make my dreams on travelling comes true.
