Letter to the family

My name is Sofia. Last year I decided to start a new journey in my life. The desire to experience new adventures. Leaving my home country Guatemala change me forever. It was when I knew I wanted to explore and immerse myself in other cultures. My first stop was Portland, Oregon. I lived there for eight years with my family and graduated with a History degree. In my last year of university, I started to apply to graduate programs, but there was this thought about moving abroad my dream was always to travel. I guess everyone has this feeling at least one time in their lives, with no hesitation; I started to make arrangements to move to Barcelona. It was a crazy summer, but I realize how capable you can be when you have a goal. I committed to myself to succeed and not give up. I had to work multiple jobs from painting, interpreter, caregiver, janitor, assistant, babysitting pets, teacher assistant, and production positions. These different jobs taught me responsibility, organization, accountability, and the feeling of accomplishment that is incomparable. Now I am waiting for my next adventure to happen. Would you give me the chance to share this experience with you?

Experience

As mentioned, I have a Bachelor's in Liberal Arts History with two minors in International Studies and Spanish from George Fox University. I had the opportunity to volunteer at the Barcelona History Museum for two months before the pandemic started. I used to be an intern at the Hoover-Minthorn House Museum. Two summers ago, I worked as a teaching assistant at Ready set go, a program provided by Metropolitan Family Service. This year, I worked at a British rural school in one of their summer camps, which was a grateful experience for me to interact with children of different ages and learn techniques on how to approach the kids. These have provided me with real work experience. On the side, I do maintenance jobs. You can trust your loving ones will safe with me. I want to be an Aupair because will give me the opportunity to share my culture as well as getting real experience my dream is to become a teacher.
