Letter to the family

Dear host family,
my name is Paula, 18 years old, and I am originally coming from Germany. Momentarily I am still in school with the perspective of graduating in a few months. I have set the goal for myself to see as much of the world as possible, visit different places, use my time there productively and get to know myself and the culture surrounding me on a much deeper level. Furthermore I have also been fixating on the idea of becoming a teacher, work in order to better the world around me. Still I feel that there is something lacking, something I would be deprived from if I started University immediately after graduation, especially since I am not 100% certain of what to do with life and do not want to stumble in something I could regret. That, not to mention I love spending time with children, is why I want to become an AuPair. Combining this social ambition, wanderlust as well as this inspiring uncertainty, I would be a quite promising candidate for an AuPair. I qualify for that position since I will participate in an internship in a kindergarten soon, in a tutoring program as well as have always had a younger sister and a dog I took care of. People would describe me as understanding, sensitive, cooperative, energetic making me a suitable candidate for such job.

Experience

Even though I have to agree that my work experience is pretty slim, my ambition to be an Au Pair is extremely broad. The lack of experience mostly can be traced back to that idea of an Au Pair being quite a sudden opportunity opening up for me as well as the general lack of opportunity to do internships of some sort during the extensive phase of A- Level preparations.
Now that I am planning my future, my year 2025, I stumbled across that showstopping possibility to spend time with children (which will hopefully be my occupation later in life) somewhere not in Germany which would mean improving of language skills, getting to know new people in a different culture, receiving a mentality shift, learning and breaking out of my social cycle completely being great opportunities to gain life and work experience, which I am really grateful for.
I want to spend my Gap- year productively being the reason for me having even researched for a long term volunteer job but have ultimately decided against it. I want to be an AuPair because it is way more personal, I am automatically given a home and am able to make a home feel a lot more homey as well. I am able to experience what live offers me, these new cultural traditions, behaviors, completely and utterly from within. All that would be so beneficial for gaining experience in general.
