Letter to the family

Dear Host Family,

My name is Rayra. I am a 25 year-old (female) brazilian student. Currently I live in New York, where I have studied English since last May at the New York Language Center. Compared to New York the capital Porto Alegre is a small town (almost 1.5 million people)situated on the south of Brazil.

I come from a family of 5: My parents, one older sister, one younger brother and I. My eldest sister is 27 years old and works as English teacher, she is married and has 2 lovely children. She lives in Canela-RS with her family. My youngest brother is 19 years old and is an Electric engineer student. Currently he is doing a volunteer work in Mexico.

I have helped my parents look after my younger brother since birth. In addition, I got completed a course specialization in childrencare that made  able to get a license and work as a  monitor in childrecare schools in Brazil. I had a great and amazing time working with 2-4 toddlers, planing the schedule of activities, including basic English and helping with their hygiene.

I also used to spend a lot of amazing time playing and taking care of my 2 and a half years nephew. I still didn't have the opportunity to meet my 8 month niece in person since her birth, when I was already living in NY. I'm very excited to meet them in future and find myself in their ever animated company. I can comfortably say that I sincerely enjoy spending time with children.

When it comes to leisure, I take pleasure in the simple things in life. I enjoy being outdoors, being with my friends, going for walks, visiting places I have not been to, and reading a good book. I also enjoy painting on dull or rainy days. I often used to propose drawing and painting activities to my nephew  and our neighbour's children whenever they come for company.

As far as preferences are concerned, I am looking for a live-in arrangement with a host family, that would be happy to have me stay with and work for them for at least 6 months. I would also prefer looking after children aged between 6 months to 10 years. Although I am quite flexible, I would prefer to have working hours that would allow me to attend day time English language classes.

In about a few months I plan to take TOEFL test to make up my mind a future area of specialization in tourism. So, at the moment, I would like to have a different life experience, and to have time to reflect on my future academic/professional orientation. To this end, I think spending one more year abroad would be particularly interesting.

I would be happy to have the opportunity to speak with you: to answer whatever questions you may have about me or my childcare experiences, to learn more about your family, your interests and to know more about what you expect from the au pair/nanny arrangement.

Thank you very much for your interest in my application! I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours Sincerely,
