Letter to the family

Dear Family,

My name is Tuğçe. I am a 24 year-old (female) Turkish student. Although I currently live in İstanbul, where I am one month short of completing my undergraduate studies in architecture at the University of Kırklareli, I actually come from Adana. Compared to İstanbul, (which is Turkey's largest city), Adana is a small town (approximately 3 million inhabitants), and is situated on the slopes of Mt Toros.

I come from a family of 4: My parents, Dad and Mom, are self employed and work in Adana. I have a sister. My sister , is 17 years old and is a secondary school student.

In about a year or two I plan to pursue a masters degree, but I am yet to make up my mind concerning my future area of specialization. So, at the moment, I would like to take some time out of academics to have a different life experience, and to have time to calmly reflect on my future academic/professional orientation. To this end, I think spending a year abroad would be particularly interesting.

My first language is, of course, Turkish, I started learning English in primary school, and it was also the language of instruction in the secondary school I attended. I have in addition been taking courses taught in English at university.

When it comes to child care experience, I have looked after children in both formal and informal contexts. I spent a six month period working in a children's home in İstanbul. Among others, I provided after-school tuition to children aged between 5 to 10 years. I also have participated volunteering project in Romania and organized for kids and took part in recreational indoor and outdoor activities: we sang, danced, played games, role played, drew, painted, and narrated stories. We also visited the public library, the local animal park, went out on picnics and a camping trip.

I have helped my parents look after sister since birth. Although my looking after her is now restricted to my university vacations, as a teenager, I was nevertheless much more involved in caring for them on a daily basis. I can comfortably say that I sincerely enjoy spending time with children.

When it comes to leisure, I take pleasure in the simple things in life. I enjoy being outdoors, being with my friends, going for walks, visiting places I have not been to, and reading a good book. I also enjoy painting and on dull or rainy days, I often propose drawing and painting activities to sister and our neighbour's children whenever they come for company. Did I already mention that I love to read and write? At my university,

As far as preferences are concerned, I am looking for a live-in arrangement with a host family, that would be happy to have me stay with and work for them for at least 6 months. I would also prefer looking after children aged between 6 months to 10 years. Lastly, although I am quite flexible, I would prefer to have working hours that would allow me to attend day time language classes.

I would be happy to have the opportunity to speak with you: to answer whatever questions you may have about me or my childcare experiences; to learn more about your family; your interests and to know more about what you expect from the au pair arrangement.

Thank you very much for your interest in my application!
I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours Sincerely,
Tuğçe
