Letter to the family

Hello!
My name is Abbie and I am from Maui, Hawaii and going to University in Boise, Idaho. I just finished my first year there and have decided to continue with online classes so that I can live out my dream of becoming an Au pair abroad. I love to travel and learn and take advantage of as many good opportunities I can. I have been "babysitting" for about 8 years now but would like to take my experience to the next level as well as meet more people and gain knowledge about new languages and cultures. :) I am very eager to find a family abroad and begin the process as soon as possible!

Experience

I have been babysitting my little brother since I was 10 and have been doing paid babysitting for other families for about 6 years. I have taken care of children from the ages of 1 to 14 years and have experience with overnight sitting as well! Also, for about a year, I also volunteered at an after school day care and worked/played with kids from the ages of 3-10 three times a week. My most recent experience with babysitting was during college when I took care of my Aunt's twin boys weekly, and I am currently looking to gain more experience by nannying/babysitting in my home town to save money up until I leave for Europe.
I want to be an Au pair because I think it would be a great experience that I would be so lucky to have. I want to immerse myself in another culture and gain more experience in child care. I also think it is really important to be able to explore and get to know a new place in the world and use it as a learning experience. I think that there is so much to do in life and there are many things that I would like to pursue, so why not start now in a new place where I can learn so much and get to know a wonderful family!
My expectations for my stay are mostly just taking care of the kids and helping the family wherever else I can, and learning and getting to know them well. I would love to become somewhat of an older sibling for your kids! Also being able to explore in my free time, and practice the language spoken in the area/within the family and be somewhat immersed in it. I would also appreciate some autonomy, as I have lived alone previously and really enjoy being independent! I would just like a different environment that I can learn from, become familiar with, and meet new people in the process.
