Letter to the family

Hello, my name is Linzy! I am 26 and living in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. I live here with my partner, dog, and a lot of house plants. I grew up in Oklahoma, recently moved to Santa Barbara, California for about two years, where I met my current partner, and landed here again due to the pandemic. I work as a server in a locally owned cocktail bar/ restaurant as well as working production for a small candle business. I didn't plan on living here again so soon but it has been so lovely to be close to my family and friends. I usually spend my free time reading, working on projects of my own, going on long walks with my dog, and making food or watching movies with my partner. He is from Venezuela so we make a lot of arepas! He will be moving to New York to pursue acting in the spring. I'm very excited for him and although it will be hard not to go, I have to chase what is going to be most life giving for me, which could be this experience!

Experience

Becoming an Au Pair has been something on the back of my mind. Every time I hear an experience like it I think to myself "I would really love to do that!". It is difficult to imagine how to in the chaos of life but I am beginning to take more control of my life. To do the things I say I want to! I am not pursuing a career in a field related to childcare although, I have thought about it. My mom remarried and had three children when I was 11. I was the built in nanny for my own family. Because of that other people began to ask me to watch their children and before I knew it I had my own little babysitting service in high school. I was waking up extra early to help get my siblings off to school and babysitting afternoons that I didn't have practice of my own. Following high school children were the thing I knew. When I was in college I worked for an academic program that was focused towards kids with learning challenges, autism or behavioral issues. In Santa Barbara I worked as a peer educator in an elementary school, sometimes with a specific student and other times with a group of children. I've learned its not the thing I want to do forever because I have other areas of passion to explore but it is something I enjoy and that comes natural because of my experiences. The goal of this experience for me is to learn and grow. I would love to be able to share and teach some of my skills with kids and to learn childlike myself with them a different pace of life. Madrid was my first European city to visit, and something about Spain made me feel at home, a feeling I have lacked living in Oklahoma. I also want to be emerssed in a place where I can continue to learn and become fluent in Spanish.
