Letter to the family

Dear families,
My name is Nina. I’m 18 years old and currently finishing my last year of High School, from which I will be graduating this summer. I am looking for a family to be an au pair for in Paris, for the coming school year (September 2023-July 2024). My plan is to move to Paris, in order to learn French properly and be able study cinema. I visited Paris last autumn and immediately fell in love with the city. Since then it has been my dream to move there.
I am originally from Italy, but I have been living in Berlin, Germany since 2009. I went to a bilingual primary and high school where I learned how to write and read in Italian as well as German. Even though Italian is my actual first language, I speak German just as well. I also lived in the USA for a year (2021/2022), where I took part in an exchange and visited an American high school. There I had the chance to learn English, which I now speak perfectly. I lived in a host family and went through the experience of living with other people and be part of their daily lives, building some new wonderful connections. I would consider them my second family now.
When it comes to my interests, as already mentioned I am very passionate about film, photography and the arts in general. I believe Paris is just the right city to help me discover and expand this side of me. In general I am someone who enjoys any type of creative activity. Apart from that I love reading, taking walks and spending time with friends and family. I am also a pretty good cook. I love mixing traditional Italian recipes with more modern and vegetarian/vegan versions. (I am myself vegetarian, but have no problem cooking and being around meat.) Some other facts about me, I am an active person. I love skiing, swimming and travelling, which I have had the chance to do many times with my family. My favourite countries I visited will always be, Sri Lanka, Capo Verde and Spain.
When it comes to working with children, I have never actually had any type of regular “babysitting” job, but I have many times helped family friends in Berlin as well as ones in the USA with their children on occasions such as weekends and nights where the parents weren’t home. I always had a lovely time, and the children I assisted were always different ages, between 4 and 10 years old. Currently I am working on weekends at a cafe/pastry shop, this is my first real job and it has been a very helping experience. I have learned more about punctuality, co-working and responsibilities.
Lastly, I wanted to add that I live with a cat and in the USA I lived with two dogs, and I find myself really comfortable around pets.
In conclusion, I wanted to say, that while I will be staying with you I want to follow an intensive French class. This is important for you to know, because it will take certain hours off my days.
Thank you so much for taking the time to learn a little bit about me, I’m looking forward to getting to know you as well and move to Paris soon.
A bientôt ❤️,
