Letter to the family

Dear host family,

Hi! My name is Michaela (Mi-Kay-La), and I am currently 17 years old and a senior in high school. I live in the Mid-west part of America in a state called Minnesota. I enjoy being outdoors and staying active. Growing up I played volleyball and softball. Right now my interests include cooking, learning new recipes, and cuisines. In college, I plan to study International business economics and trade with a minor in education.

A big value of mine is family. I grew up in a Christian home, but I am always looking for opportunities to learn about different cultures, customs, and religions. I have a very big family and lots of nieces and nephews so from a very young age I was watching out for my younger family members, and now I often babysit. My mother is Dutch and my father is Haitian and Dominican.

Staying healthy happy and productive are all very important to me but most of all are kindness, respect, and patience. So I hope to learn more about my potential host family's lifestyle culture and values, so I can be the best au pair I can be for that family.

Experience

I would say my experience with children started fairly young, babysitting my nieces and nephews. I was also tutoring at a middle school for three years. As well as I currently have a job as a "Program Supervisor" at an elementary school (kindergarteners through 7th graders) where I plan activities and field trips during the summer and help with homework. I also play tons of games with them throughout the school year. Since I got my license I have been watching my neighbor's kids regularly in the mornings bringing them to school and picking them up after school in the evenings. Like I said previously I am also involved in “Radiant Readers“ where I teach 5-10 year old's English online! I also make it a goal during my free to spend with my nieces and nephews at the park because I understand my older siblings may not always have time for these things.

My main goal is to take advantage of the time in another country to learn about it and the culture, customs, traditions, more specifically language, and environment. I also have always wanted to be a nanny at one point in my life. I hope to make a really good relationship with my host family!
