Letter to the family

Dear future host family,
My name is Merle and I am nineteen years old. I am from Germany and will finish school coming spring. I have not worked as an Au Pair yet but I have already had a lot of experience in taking care of young children due to many babysitting jobs I have done since I was fourteen years old and helping students with their studies.
I really love working with children but I did not just wish to take care of them during the day but also later in the evening, which is why I chose to become an Au Pair. That way I hope to become much closer to them than I could have been if I had chosen to be a kindergartener or something in that professional area. I would love to be able to get the children ready for school or kindergarten in the morning (if they are old enough already), to take them there and pick them up afterwards. We would be doing their homework together if they needed help and maybe play a game inside or outside afterwards. I would be happy to take them to other activities like a sports club and get them ready for bed and read something to them later in the evening.
I do know that being an Au Pair is not just about taking care of the children but also to help you out with some work in the household. I am not afraid of cleaning or shopping as well as preparing some meals. It may sound strange but that the latter is actually something I quite enjoy doing. I myself am a vegetarian, so I usually cook with a lot of vegetables. I would be open to prepare meals with meat though as well :)
I cannot wait to finally finish school and start my year abroad, hopefully as your Au Pair!
Truly looking forward to meeting you,

As I have already mentioned above I have not yet been working as an Au Pair. However I have already been abroad to Ireland for a year, so I have some experience in staying with a host family. For me, the feeling of being welcomed to another family and treated like a member of theirs was simply incredible.
I could have applied for my home country - Germany - as well but I decided against that. Being able to get to know a different culture, with different traditions and habits as well as an entirely different way of living one's daily life is what I truly seek. My year abroad has changed and coined me in so many ways and I had been able to experience something so very different to what I had been used to before. I would not want to miss that year for the world! And I cannot wait to get to know another family, another daily routine and another culture again!
