Letter to the family

I recently got my paperwork stating that I have EU citizenship (so dual citizenship, along with US citizenship) and I am moving to Germany in a couple weeks, depending on when you want me to start! I am hoping to find a cozy home with you somewhere in Berlin or nearby. I am a very reliable and dedicated worker. I am always thinking ten steps ahead and try to anticipate others’ needs. This comes naturally to me and I’m proud of that. I am currently caring for a 15 year old autistic child and a golden retriever, here in the US, and I cook and clean for his family. I also have one year experience being a geriatric nursing assistant. It is in my nature to care for those in need. I lead with love and calmness, but also am not afraid to get my hands dirty while cleaning. I would like to go back to school in the fall, so if this is a good fit on both ends, that would make it easy for me to continue working for you when I return to school. I am hoping for a family that is fun and energetic. A family that enjoys doing new things and learning as much as I do. What I will provide for the family is a clean and healthy environment for the children to laugh and be relaxed at home. I intend to help out around the house as much as possible. If there is a possibility, I would really appreciate accommodations. But I can also find an off-site location to stay if needed.

Experience

I began TaeKwonDo when I was 6 years old, nervous and excited, and ever since I got my black belt at 16, I have been working with and teaching other kiddos that were just like me at that age. I've loved working with kids ever since then. It's fulfilling and they are just too adorable when they get serious and show off all the things they've work hard to learn. I also have one year experience caring for the elderly. Taking care of them and helping them with all everyday tasks. I am currently caring for an autistic child and have been for the last 6 months. Since I've started, he has grown a lot. I am very proud of him, but there are some days that he still struggles. Those are the days that he and I just slow down and face one small thing at a time. I enjoy my time with him though, he is very energetic and tries to make me laugh. This is one of the reasons why I would like to become an Au Pair in Germany. I really enjoyed my time in Germany when I stayed for an exchange program in 2010, so I really want to come back. But I also am going to miss the child I am caring for now. He has made caring for children very rewarding and so I would like to continue to help look after children.
