Letter to the family

Hello everyone!

My name is Maria, I am 29 years old, and I would like to come to Japan as an au pair. I am currently in the middle of finishing my Master's degree in English (with a focus on American literature), and once I am done with that (~ Sept/Oct 2020), I plan on coming to Japan for 6-12 months. I have always wanted to live in Japan for an extended period of time, since I love the language and the culture -- I even minored in Japanese studies. I already went on vacation in Japan, yet I am certain that to actually live and work there and become part of its daily life would be a completely different experience. That is also why I want to be an Au Pair, so as to completely immerse myself in the culture and language.

Regarding my child care experience: I have been a babysitter for a child of 8 for almost five years now, and I have been tutoring a now teen for around the same period of time. I also sometimes take care of my niece (11) and my nephew (1 1/2). I am therefore mainly used to dealing with young kids who are no longer toddlers (my nephew being the exception, of course).

If you are looking for someone who is open-minded, eager to learn new things, but can also be strict if need be, I might be the right person for you. Given my education, I am capable of speaking both German (native language) but also fluent English, so we can communicate in either language. I also know some very basic Japanese, but am currently in the middle of studying the language by myself (at least as much as I can while working on my final exams and thesis).

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

Nice to meet you!
