Letter to the family

My name is Inês and I am a 20 year old girl from Portugal. I was born in a small town, in the north of the country, but I've always dreamt big. As a very dynamic and proactive individual I have been engaged in as many projects as possible throughout the years: National Youth Parliament, European Youth Parliament, Amnesty International initiatives, High school and University Student Unions, English Peer Tutoring or even being a board member for a Soft Skills Student Club. For the last 3 years I lived in Lisbon, where I studied Management at Nova School of Business and Economics (degree mainly taught in English). I find myself a very talkative and communicative person who loves to be around others and know more about other people and cultures. Ever since I remember I've been extremely passionate about Italy because of its culture, food, music, beautiful landscapes but above all the Italian lifestyle. Right now I am currently planning a Gap Year between my BSc degree and my MSc and I can't remember of a better country to spend it than Italy. I am very interested in learning Italian and get a 'full' Italian experience. I am fluent in English and Portuguese and have already worked with children before in peer-tutoring programs (over the last 6 months).

Experience

I have been giving English lessons to a 12 year old boy and a 14 year old girl over the last 6 months as a volunteer for an English Peer Tutoring Program from Cascais' Municipality. In High School I have also developed some workshops and activities for younger children together with some colleagues of mine.
When it comes to family and given that my cousins are all quite older than me and my sister we are always choose to baby-sit their children ever since they are little. 2 of them already have 16 and 14 years old and there are 3 little ones with 3 years old only.
When thinking about what I would like to do during my Gap Year various ideas crossed my mind - even backpacking in Southeast Asia - but ultimately I've realised that I would like to create roots somewhere and for that matter I needed to 'settle' in some place I love. I've also understood that my Gap Year would have to be about giving myself to others and be able to help them in the best way I can while still being able to achieve some personal growth.There's no better way to do it than live among an Italian family and really engage and experience the real Italian lifestyle - which would be much more difficult if I just moved there on my own - while being able to help them and their children.
