Letter to the family

Dear host family,
as you have already seen from my application my name is Claudia Sarcià and I'm 24 years old. I'm the third of four children (Valentina, Fiorella, Sebastiano).
It's been four years already that I'm studying and working at the same time. I work as a waitress in an Italian restaurant in Belgium but I'm originally from Sicily (Italy). I'm currently at the third year of the university course "Hotel Management".
I went to Belgium when I was seventeen since I choose an Intercultural program consisting in one year of exchange abroad. When I came back, I choose to continue my studies in Belgium in order to stay independent and improve my French. I'm fluent in three languages: Italian (mother tongue), French, and Spanish.
Volleyball is my favorite sport and I play it since I was ten. This taught me discipline, consistency and teamwork.
The main reason why I decided to become an au pair is that I'm an adventurous person who likes to explore new cultures, languages, and lifestyles
Another important reason is having the chance to learn something about myself, making experiences and being more independent.
And last but not least, having a home away from home. I would love to create a real connection with the host-family and become part of it. I already made this experience when I was seventeen, living one year abroad with a Belgian host-family. I still talk to them on a regular basis and sometimes "I come back home".
I would love to be part of an American host family since I would like to learn your culture, attitude and lifestyle. What excites me the most is the opportunity to exchange habits and traditions, especially things like cooking Italian food and learn to cook the American one.
I have always loved to take care of children since I was eleven when my brother was born. Since my mom was working all day, I used to always baby-sitter him. That's mainly the way I learned how to cook, especially things like healthy snacks and how to squeeze veggies into yummy dinners that children will love.
Given the fact that I basically raised him, I noticed the stages of childhood development, understanding that each age is different from another. Moreover, it's been one year that I'm babysitting my grandchildren given that my sister works all day. There were times that they have been sick and I managed how to help them.
The opportunity to teach values like respect and good manners to little ones fascinates me. For example, the importance of maintaining a loving environment where children feel safe to grow.
I'm a very sunny girl, independent, kind, very polite and responsible. I love animals, especially dogs and cats (I got 8 cats and 2 dogs) and I took care of chicken and chicks. I'm in love with nature and I'm passionate about excursions.
I'm a very honest person as I've been while completing my application.
I can't wait to meet you and I'm looking forward to have a good time with you all.
I send you a warm hug and wish you a good day!!
