Letter to the family

Dear future host family,
my name is Lavinia, I’m 18 and I live with my family in Vercelli, a town in northern Italy. Before going to university I decided to take a gap year to have this amazing experience abroad. I’m an outgoing and very curious person, I love to chat but also listen to what others have to tell. I’m a very creative girl with desire to do, plus I easily adapt to any situation, but of course I have flaws too! I love meeting people from all over the world and getting to know new cultures and lifestyles. I’m also really interested in foreign languages: I can speak Spanish and English quite well, I can also speak a little French and I wish my stay in the USA will help me improve my language skills. I’ve practiced many sports: rhythmic gymnastics, athletics and swimming; my favorite was athletics, which I’ve been doing for seven years, then I had to quit due to studying for high school. I'm a MotoGP fan and I follow every race, it's a passion that my dad passed on to me since I was a child, obviously I support Valentino Rossi. I've never been to a circuit to see the race live but it’s something i’d love to do!
I love children, I’ve always wanted a little brother but unfortunately I’m the youngest of the family; however I’ve had many experiences with children, including being a summer camp entertainer and doing volunteering at a primary school. I was an entertainer for three years at the summer camp and two at the winter oratory, my role was to entertain children (aged 5 to 13) by organizing activities and games: during the day I also helped the kids with their homework, then I directed the team games and of course I made sure that everyone respected the rules. Doing that, I learnt how to relate with children of different ages and I realized how gratifying is spending time and interacting with kids.
Another very impactful experience was volunteering in a primary school in my city: I helped the teacher during the art classes, we often did arts and crafts and I mainly looked after the younger children to help them with manual activities. For example, some of the activities I really enjoyed were preparing the Easter chore and drawing the painting for Mother's Day; then the kids brought home the chores for their families, but the thing I liked the most was that the following days they told me the reactions of their parents and thanked me for helping them. While caring for them I have noticed how spontaneous and affectionate they can be, but at the same time I had to deal with their bad moods and whims so I've become much more patient and understanding.
These experiences are one of the reasons why I would like to be an au pair, I'm ready to give all the love I have to your family and to treat your children as if they were my little brothers, I don't know what your expectations are but I just can tell you that I'll do my best on any occasion.
I hope I fully meet your requirements and look forward to meeting you!
