Letter to the family

Dear host family,

My name is Jimena Muro, I come from Aguascalientes, Mexico. I am 21 years old and for the last 5 months I have been living in Pforzheim, Germany. I study Industrial Engineering in Mexico but I came to Germany last year to study abroad one semester at the Hochschule Pforzheim.

I chose Germany, because ever since I was sixteen years old and I came here for the first time I loved everything about here, and one of the things that I want the most is to be able to speak your language because I think it brings great opportunities to students to develop themselves professionally. So, improving my german is one of the main reasons why I want to become an Au Pair. I want to become an Au Pair for many reasons. As I mentiones before, I have great affection to this country and I want to take every possible chance to stay here. And I think that being an Au Pair is an amazing opportuinity to get to know better the culture and the usual daily life in Germany.

After living alone for five months, I realized, that it is an experience that helps you a lot in your personal growith. I have always lived with my sisters, my parents and my grandmother, so I was used to be in a full house. And one of the most important things my mother taught me is that in a full house, everyone has to help doing household tasks, and, when I started living alone I realized how imprtant this habit is in order to keep your house clean, so, I really appreciate this practice from my mom. And when living alone, one learns how to be more independent, like cooking for yourself, or learn how to move around the city, or smaller things that I think are necessary to be more mature.

I have never been an Au Pair, however, I used to babysit many of my neighbour's kids.The most common family I worked for were my next door neighbours who had three girls (5, 6 and 12 years old respectively). We would do homework together, and on the weekends we would go for an ice cream or just go to the park near the house to play for a while. I really liked being a nanny because it made me realize how much I like kids and they are always fun to be with. Every kid is different and definetely, it is not the same to take care of a 5 year old than a 12 year old kid, but I think that helped me to get more experience and to get to know kids better.

I think it is amazing that families are willing to receive a foreigner in their homes, because I think it is not easy at all to give someone that familiarity, so I would like to say that I would truly appreciate if you give me the opportunity to get to know each other better.

Best wishes,

Jimena Muro

Experience

I have never been an Au Pair before, but in my own city I have done many jobs as a babysitter. I have taken care of kids from the age of 2 till the age of 14. All the kids i have babysat have helped me to learn something new. In my experience, takign care of babys is hard, but, taking care of pre-teensis hard too. One would think that they dont need as much special care as babies. And maybe not, but they still need as much attention as any other kid, just a different kind of attention, so that they dont feel that they are less important than their younger siblings.

I would like to become an Au Pair because I think it is a great opportunity to learn and improve the new language and to get to know the different cultures all over the world.
