Letter to the family

Hi my name is Benedetta, I’m 19 years old, and I live in a little village in Italy, called Ospitaletto, next to the city of Brescia. I come from small family but I have younger cousins so I know how to take care of kids and play with them. In fact, last year I was my cousin’s babysitter: I spent the mornings helping him with homework and the afternoons playing and going around the town in our bicycles.
Working with children has always brought to me happiness. I have quite a few experiences with summercamps and homework groups: when I was 16 I became a chancellor in a camp and I was in contact with children between the ages of 8 and 10. I learnt how to communicate with them and I taught them how to think and act after an argument or a fight with someone. The year after I had the same experience but took care of 6 and 7 year olds. In september I signed up in a group that helped kids with their homework, but my favourite part was having a snack with them and getting to know them better.
What I took from all of these experiences is that kids are not the only ones learning, a lot of times I was the one learning from them their positive and simple way of thinking. I found out that after a day spent with children I feel satisfied that I helped grow a little bit and I feel happy that I made them smile even a little.
I really wish I could become an aupair to find out if having a job that involves children is be something I can pursue in my future, because I've just finished high school and I am quite confused about what to do.
I’m a very easy-going person : I don’t find it hard to adapt myself to different situations. I am also sensitive and gentle so I hope I can teach children the importance of caring and kindness. I love to experiment, create and “diy”activities, so I wish I can work with kids and teach them the fun they can have creating things on their own. I enjoy spending time with people, in fact in my friend’s group I like to suggest trips and outings to do together but I also like proposing more chill activities like staying in and watching a movie. As much as I like to suggest I also listen to what my friends would like to do so we can all arrive to good compromise.
As you may have seen in my profile, I am vegan but I want you to know that is not a problem for me to live in an omnivorous family, in fact my family is not vegan. If it is requested i will cook meat or whatever the kids prefer, but I hope you would taste some of my favourite plant-based meals, i swear they are reeeeeally good;)
I hope that this letter can show you, even just a little bit, the person that I am and I hope you’ll get to know me better one day.
