Letter to the family

Hiii! My name is Tessa, but all my friends call me Tess. I'm 21 years old and passionate about so many things in the world, including exploring the world, languages, food, computer science, kindness, animals, and of course caring for kids! I grew up in a huge family of 8 and had to move between states each year. I used to be the youngest of the family until my dad re-married and I then I got twin baby brothers which I am so thankful for, I love my little brothers so much!! They are now 11 years old, but when I was living with them, I watched them every day when I lived with my father. I showed them my favorite movie from Studio Ghibli; My neighbor is Totoro, as well as making food for them, and going on hikes to explore around California. I was a very involved sister who loved teaching them new things like the Japanese alphabet! I made them a really cute hiragana chart that helped them study! Besides taking care of my little brothers I have babysat many kids throughout my life and have been looking for a job working with kids because it is my passion to make kids feel loved and feel like they have had a great childhood. My goal is to spread kindness and show the importance of choosing to be a kind soul.

Experience

I would love to become an au pair and contribute to bringing some of my own cultures from America. Not sure if any of you have ever tried pasta, but that's one of my favorite foods!!! So yummy. I feel like I would be a great person to host because I am very outgoing and am excited to learn new things as well as share my favorite things and hobbies. I love a good karaoke night where you just get to be yourself and have fun singing your favorite songs! This is random but I love stationery and crafting items. When I am teaching English or trying to present something I love to do it in a very hands-on learning type of way with crafts, colors, and even glitter sometimes! Even when I am teaching myself I love to color code and be creative with my own notes. I can't wait to explore, learn, cook, and enjoy being a big sister!

Another thing I forgot to mention, I worked at a karate dojo on the weekends doing birthday parties for kids. As well as we had special days and events where I would teach origami to groups of kids.

Side note: I studied abroad in Japan for 4 weeks through a summer program which was the best 4 weeks of my life! I took the train and walked to school and events daily. I used to go from toneri to nippori - Shinjuku and many other places. So, I am familiar with getting around in Tokyo a bit.
