Letter to the family

Dear Future Family,

My name is Zelal, I am a 23 year old Postgraduate who recently moved to Berlin from my home city of London. I studied Conflict, Security and Development MA at the prestigious War Studies Dept. at King's College University, which I enjoyed thoroughly. Moving to Berlin was my dream, as I want to become a fluent German speaker and love learning about the history and culture of new places. I love history, art, literature and politics- and children!

I decided to take a break from education and career to give myself the time to focus on my personal development, and becoming an au pair provides me a perfect balance. I love children, I am very nurturing, gentle, and would say that I have a very easygoing and open character (if I can say such things about myself!). I am looking for a family who is also open minded like myself, and could do with the extra hands with their children. As the current society structure doesn't allow parents enough time with their children, I am fully aware of the difficulties of leaving your little ones at home to go to work and can promise to take care of them with the utmost love and care. I hope to provide my family with the ease that they can trust me to look after their family, and help their children have a seamless and joyful childhood. In return, I hope you can support me with learning about your culture, and the German language!

I come from a very multicultural background; being raised in London and coming from a Kurdish family, I am very adaptable to any family- regardless of ethnicity, or religion. I am agnostic- but have a good knowledge of most religions and always open to learning more! I do not discriminate anyone based on any criteria, be it race; religion; gender; sexual orientation; or lifestyle, I hope that you will do the same for me. I have experience with babysitting as well as tutoring children of many ages, and can ensure that I will provide great company for your kids. I speak English and Turkish fluently at native level, and have a working level of German (while I am at elementary level now, I hope to become fluent at C2 level in a years time).

I hope you find my profile a great fit for your family, I look forward to your message.

Experience

I am looking to become an au pair in order to provide myself the space and time to focus on my personal development, learn German, and integrate seamlessly into German culture. I have good experience working with children and find joy in working with children of all ages. I also have tutoring experience and so can provide assistance with families to help their kids with their schoolwork. As a Masters graduate, I decided to take a gap year to slow down and think well about my next steps- which I decided would take place in Europe. As a British National, I am a native English speaker, but wished to learn a third language, and I believe German is a perfect gateway into Europe as a leading language. This is why I wish to become an Au Pair.
