It is time to start with a new blog series where will be introducing the people of Näpp. Today, in our first introduction blog, you will get to know one of our Näppsitter a little bit better.

Meet the Näppsitter, Andrea

“My name is Andrea, I am from the United States and am 20 years old. At the moment I live in the Netherlands, as I am studying Creative Business in Hogeschool Utrecht. I am a very creative person, I love art, going to museums, traveling and meeting new people, so in the future, I hope to become a creative director.

When I moved to the Netherlands, I wanted to find a part-time job and my first thought was to babysit since I used to do it back home too. I love babysitting, because I enjoy working with children, being creative with them and helping them solve problems. Children are super open-minded to learning and trying new things, so when babysitting, I usually let the child decide what we are going to do today, which always ends up being fun and exciting. Back home, I have worked for eight different families, most of whom were from my hometown in the US, but also for some international families. So when I found out about Näpp through my classmate, I was very excited to sign up and find the new families. Näpp is great for me because it caters to my needs in finding a family that is looking for a native English speaker since it’s more difficult here, as my Dutch isn’t the greatest yet.”
