Letter to the family

Dear future host family,

My name is Lara and in this letter I´m going to try to describe myself and why I might be the perfect au-pair for your family.
Traveling and learning about new cultures has always been one of my favorite things to do, so when I heard about this au pair program I immediately knew that this is what I want to do after my graduation. Another reason for me to become an au pair is that I love getting to know new people and their stories, plus I´m always up for new adventures.
What excites me most about living with a host family is that as an au pair you immerse into a new lifestyle and can get to know new traditions.
Also it´s always been a dream of mine to live in Paris and in general to get to know new places.
Another advantage of living with new people is that you get to face new challenges and can learn a lot from each other.
This as well is a reason why I love taking care of children: You can learn a lot from them and their perspectives of life. Moreover, I enjoy teaching children new things like swimming or riding a bycicle.
Skills I´ve already learned from working with children include a lot of patience, problem solving and multitasking. Especially during my voluntary work in a Romanian children´s home I´ve experienced that people don´t have to look the same or speak the same language to understand each other. Through playing games like football or UNO (a card game) my classmates and I soon were able to earn the at first partly shy and partly unmotivated children´s trust and respect.
To me, excursions are really important. I love going outside and experiencing new things. This is also one of my favorite things to do with children, because I believe that kids can learn a lot more about life by experiencing things first hand instead of playing computer games or spending all of their times in front of the tv. I love to take kids swimming, hiking, skiing, or on other fun adventures. Another thing I like to do with children is to craft or cook and bake together. I´m vegan but I could also imagine myself cooking vegetarian options.
Some other facts about me are that (besides being vegan) I am just in general a really open-minded person who loves to try new things (sports, games, recipes....). Furthermore topics like our environment and equal rights for all humans are especially important to me.

Generally I´m just really looking forward to living in a completely new home for a year, collecting new experiences and hopefully being an enrichment in your family.

Best regards,

Lara :)

Experience

I have alway been interested in learning as many languages as possible. Furthermore I like teaching people new things (which I probably got from my parents, since both of them are teachers). I like to help people out and am in general a very open-minded person who finds it easy to get to know new people. Another reason for which I want to became an Au Pair is to better my French.
