Almuth grew up with two older brothers and they have a good relationship – visiting each other often. Almuth’s mother lives close by and she visits her on weekends.  Almuth has some great childcare experience – Since 2015, she has worked in the ‘girls club’ helping with the different activities. The club is a project for free activities for girls but also information – they support young girls especially if they need somebody to talk too. She enjoys this time as she works with different ages and plays together, cooking, and lots of talking. Almuth has tutoring experience plus completed a gap year in an education facility after her school year – in this experience, she worked with special needs children which then made her realise this is something she wanted to do ongoing! Almuth has also enjoyed being a youth group leader for summer camps -she was responsible for a group of girls, caring and supporting them.

I like adapting to children and their needs”.
