Letter to the family

Hello families,

My name is Arlette I'm 25 years old my whole life I have worked with children from ages 1-17-year-olds I enjoy being around them and watching them grow and be their full potential. I love activities, reading, the outdoors, and sports I myself used to be a youth coach and a sports instructor now I am a behavior technician for autistic children. It's a very rewarding job helping children grow and see how amazing they can be. I'm currently about to graduate with my masters in clinical mental health and I will then focus on children's play therapy once I come back from becoming an au pair. Being an au pair has always been something I've always wanted to do for years now. I enjoy learning different things and having the opportunity to travel and meet wonderful people, and being able to see a different culture is an honor. I hope you kindly shoot me a message and hopefully will be a candidate for your family. Have a great day!

I have always loved working with kids since I was a teenager. I've volunteered at Mcallen boys and girls club for 4 years and gotten to see how many kids grow and how much children need guidance growing up. Once I was getting my bachelor's I worked as a Youth counselor at the university in the summer and was able to teach children coping skills, athletic skills, and educational resources, and watching them grow and motivating them was such a great reward for me. At the moment, I am finishing my master's as a clinical mental health counselor, and I will be focusing on children who have gone through traumatic events. However, before I get into my career, I always wanted to travel and visit a new country and be able to help a family but also experience a different culture. I believe learning from different cultures can help a person grow their knowledge and skills and their mental health.
