Letter to the family

Originally translated from Français
Dear family,
My name is Zipporah. I am a first year student in BL literary preparatory classes at Lycée Janson de Sailly in Paris. I am from Montpellier. This year I am therefore in Paris for my studies. I am fortunate to be housed in a large boarding school where 400 young people of my age live; so i can meet new people almost every day! I am very sociable by nature so I really enjoy it! Many activities are offered there (climbing, cinema, theater, swimming, yoga, etc.), and since I am a dynamic and active person, I take advantage of it! My studies are very demanding, so I work a lot. But when my afternoon of rest arrives, I often go on an adventure to discover Paris, which I do not yet know very well.
I'm also very athletic: last year I was doing krav-maga, rock climbing and jogging with a friend. This year my studies meant that I had to reduce my sports practice. I still continue a bit, because that is one of the things that oxygenates and recharges me; I go to the swimming lessons offered by the boarding school and I also run every Sunday morning. I did a lot of gymnastics when I was younger; it is a sport that has remained dear to my heart! On the artistic side, I have always regretted not having learned to play an instrument. Also, since I am lucky this year to have many pianos around me (there are 5 available pianos arranged all over the boarding school) and a friend who knows how to play them, I asked her to m 'learn ; so i'm learning my first song. I love ! I believe that you will have understood that it is the dynamism and the joy of living that characterize me the most! Very smiling, I like to spread my good humor to those around me (by the way, a little anecdote: my friends chose the inscription "the smile of Paris" to put behind my promotional sweater for this year)!
My first idea was first to find myself a job in Spain for this summer so that I could get my first real experience in the world of work (until then I have only done odd jobs), while improving my Spanish (I took it as a living language n ° 1 for the competition but I still have to work on it a lot to improve my level!). And then as I love children a lot and have had my BAFA this year, I thought of an au pair. This experience would allow me to develop much stronger bonds than can be created in a simple summer job. ; I find it a very rewarding human exchange.
More than a job, I see this experience as real sharing, within a family, with children; in short, ideal for a serious and responsible, active and sociable student who enjoys taking care of children and who wants to improve her Spanish! In addition, I already have experience as a facilitator in a recreation center; I took care of children from 3 to 6 years old. I kept them and also carried out activities. I also took care of naps and snacks, welcoming parents and tidying up. I enjoyed playing with them, imagining new workshops to offer them and doing them with them. That’s why I think this au pair job is a perfect fit for me.
Thank you for your attention to my letter, and I hope we will meet soon to have a face-to-face conversation!
