Letter to the family

Dear future host family,
With this letter I would like to give you a first impression of me and my life and why I chose to be an Au Pair.
For me being an Au Pair is about bothsided trust and responsibility. Allowing someone to stay at their house and taking care of their children is something that takes a lot of trust. Being trusted in this kind of way comes with a lot responsibilities. For me as a person it is important to fulfil my given resposibility and work the best I can to make that possible. In return being an Au Pair also means to be part of a family, being integrated in the culture of the country and gaining experience in many different ways.

Experience

Because I don´t have younger sibiling I did not experience caring for Children until I got older. When I was in 9th grade we had to do pratical work training for school and I decidet to do this at a kindergarden. I stayed there for one week and worked with toddlers. Since then I visited the Kindergarden a couple of times and helped out for the day. Because the owner of the Kindergarden is my best friends mothers I could always go back there and help out whenever I wanted.
Even though I don´t have younger sibilings myself a lot of my friends do. My best friend has two younger brother who are now 7 and 8. Because I spend a lot of time at her place I get to spend a lot of time with them as well. In addition to that I lived with two younger host sisters in Minnesota during my exchange year. The youngest was 9 years old and I got to experience having younger sibiling and being responsible for them in a different way. My best friend in Minnesota also had two younger brother we took care of whenever I was over at her place because her parents where at work most of the time. Last year (2019/2020) I decided to become an Au Pair and worked as one for seven months in Sweden. I took care of a two year old boy while his parents were at work for about 5 hours a day. I got to really experience the intense work with children and loved it from the first second.
Beeing an Au Pair combines a lot of things I like such as woking with Children, being part a family and getting to know different ways of living. I hope to increase my experience in childcare even further because it was always a big interest in my life.
