Letter to the family

Dear Family,

My name is Maria, but better known as Coti. I am Argentinean and am 29 years old. Currently, I am living in Melbourne, VIC and I have a Working Holiday Visa (subclass 417) that expires next 19th Febreruary 2020.

I come from a family of 5: my parents, who are self employed and run a small family business of vending machines in Argentina; and 2 brothers: the eldest is 27 years old and the youngest is 22 years old; both living in Spain so, as the older sibling, I´ve been taking care of them since they were children.

Currently, I would like to have a different life experience, and working as an AuPAir would be particularly interesting, considering that I really enjoy spending time with children.

My first language is Spanish but I am also fluent in English. I have been studying it since primary school, and in addition been taking courses. Also, I have an intermediate level of Portuguese.

In regard to child care experience, I have looked after children in both formal and informal contexts. Between 2009 and 2011, I provided after-University tuition to children aged between 2 to 10 years. I also organized for them and took part in recreational indoor and outdoor activities: we sang, danced, played games, role played, drew, painted, and narrated stories.

Furthermore, I have helped my parents look after my 2 brothers since birth; particulary when I was almost 14 and they had to go work. Although, there is no significant age difference between us, as the older I "put me into the role" to protect and take care of them. That´s the reason why 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 being with my family. I consider the family has an important role in children growth.

I would be happy to have the opportunity to speak with you and answer the 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!
I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours Sincerely,

Coti

Experience

Between 2009 and 2011 while I was at University I did a tuition to children between 2 to 10 years, three days a week for about 6 hours a day; also I have 2 little brothers and since I was a child I took care of them and helped my parents in domestic work. Would really appreciate to live the AuPair experience abroad. I always enjoy being and taking care of children in their daily life; also learning about them because I understand that children always have something to teach us.
