Letter to the family

Hello! My name is Valentina Melendez. I grew up in Monterrey, Mexico as the oldest sister in a family of six people. I am currently finishing my last semester of high school at PrepaTec. Due to the global pandemic I have struggled enjoying online classes and with the arising restrictions I decided to postpone my entry to university until 2022. After thoughtful consideration, I decided AuPair was the best way to work during my gap year. As I previously mentioned, I was the oldest sister in a big family. Ever since I was little I have had a maternal instinct in taking care of my younger siblings. My love for children only grew as I got older. When I was sixteen I began working during my summer and winter breaks in a daycare focused on aiding working parents from early in the morning until the afternoon. The daycare had an immersive program that ranged from teaching to entertaining activities. My role was to assist a classroom with 2 year old students. As well, I have worked independently from the daycare as a nanny with over 10 kids ranging from newborns to 12 year olds. As an external activity, before the pandemic, I would do volunteer work in a non-governmental organization focused on improving the education of kids in developing communities near my city. Every weekend I would work with my partners tutoring kids from ages 4-12.

Experience

I would love becoming an Au Pair abroad for various reasons. As I mentioned I decided to take a gap year between my high school graduation and my entry to college. Working as an AuPair allows me to enjoy working in a house that will minimize the exposure to COVID-19, and assist in creating a homely environment during my first time abroad for longer than a month. As well, working abroad will allow me to meet a new culture and also share mine with others. Another reason is that I will be able to work in a job I have previously done before and thoroughly appreciated. Finally, I love spending time with kids, it is interesting to watch them continuously grow. We may see many topics as common knowledge, but working with children is understanding matters from an oblivious perspective. It is never boring to spend time with kids.
