Hey Hey!! My names Melissa but all my friends and family call me Mel :) I am 20 years old and I am a trained Nanny!! I have been working with children all my life and love every minute of it!! I was an Au Pair in Sydney for 6 months caring for 3 year old twins and have recently finished a job on a farm working as a live in nanny caring for 3 boys (7, 2 & 1/2 and 1). The other major thing I love about my life is my ability to sing and play guitar. I have dung since i was 5 years old entering country music competitions throughout New Zealand :) I didn't start playing guitar till I was about 12-13 years old, but I LOVE IT!! I come from a family of 3 children..I am the middle child. I have an older sister (23) and a younger brother (17). I am currently still living at home with my Mum and Dad. At the moment I only have my restricted license, but in December I am sitting my Defensive driving which will allow me to get my Full License in December :) Don't hesitate, ask for references if you want them :) Thanks!! Hope to hear from you soon, Mel :)
