Hi! I am Malahat and I live with my boyfriend Moe in beautiful Vancouver BC. We are both originally Iranian, but have been living in Canada long enough and we are both citizens. Over the years we have had many international students live with us and we all have enjoyed the exchange.
I am a designer by profession and I design the interface of software and websites. Moe is a supervisor in a company. I am more artsy and interested in psychology and social sciences and Moe is more into sports and volunteering. We have both travelled the world and love learning about new cultures and making connections.
We live in a 4 bedroom house in East Vancouver. Our house has sweet old architecture, is nicely decorated and has a garden. It is located in a beautiful quite neighborhood close to two parks (check Trout lake on google). We also have fluffy cat living with us. We are very close to a sky train station and that train can take you anywhere you want. In 5 minutes bus or train ride ( or 20min bike ride), you can get to one of the most hip areas of Vancouver, commercial drive. Commercial drive, also known as little Italy bustles with restaurants, cafes, boutique and little shops. It has a diverse population and is venue to music and theatre events. Another 15 minute train ride and you are at downtown Vancouver. From there you can go to Stanley park or the seawall and be beside the ocean. You will love our place for it's style and convenient location.
Our child will be 1 year old in September. I am on Maternity leave till the end of November, but I am also busy completing practicum to be a counseling psychologist. That takes me away from child, and I need some care to help out during October and November, possibly extending to December. Our Daughter is a fun little lady that likes playing at home and also going on stroller rides and picnics in the park. You will love engaging her, if you love children.
The hours of care can be negotiated, For October and November, we are flexible and are looking for 10- 15 hours per week, this can be in the morning or afternoon, or evening. For December, we need more structure and need 15 hours of care, over three days from 9 am to 2 pm. Looking forward to chatting!
*Covid stuff details:
Because Moe is in high risk category and we have an infant we need to be super cautious. So we are looking for someone who is double vaccinated by the time they join while they are still super cautious because the delta variant can still be carried by vaccinated people and our little one is not vaccinated.
