Letter to the family

Dear Host Family

Thank you for taking time out to read this letter.

My name is Michelle amd I'm 19 years old. I completed my matric in 2017. I have been staying with my aunt in Zimbabwe since then as my parents live in South Africa with my siblings although they are separated. I visit both parents whenever i do travel to South Africa. I have 4 siblings who live with my mother. I am currently studying Law with Unisa a distance online university.

I was born in Botswana and I've lived there as well as in South Africa and Zimbabwe. Traveling to different countries is a very common thing for me as i love to experience new cultures. I consider myself a responsible young adult who is well capable of handling household work and taking care of children. Assisting with homework and whatever else is required of me.

I'm spontaneous and adventurous hence exploring and sightseeing is daily bread for me. Being integrated into a family that is like that would be truly amazing for me. I plan to give you an opportunity to experience my culture, try traditional dishes as well as learn a bit of my language. I'm more than willing to take up a new language.

I would love to be an au pair because i have a background of taking care of children and it would give me an opportunity to visit a country that is out of Africa. It has always been a dream of mine to see what is beyond the border of Africa amd being am au pair would be the perfect chance to explore that.

I've cared for my siblings when they were younger and i still do now. Im also a Sunday school teacher for a class of 2 to 5 year olds. I love how the children bring out the child in me as now that i am a bit older its harder to appreciate the little things when there's so much pressure which is why i appreciate the joy they bring.

You can expect a girl who's happy to make new friends and who enjoys the company of others. Playful as well smart and understands the need to be serious as well. I know how to handle those younger than me as i also have siblings and i can safely say i am a responsible person.

Caring for children I've learnt to be patient, kind and a little tough when the situation demands. Children want you to listen to them and also be listened to so there can be understanding and respect. I've learnt to be more responsible as when you take care of children younger than you it comes in as a handy skill. When i was younger i thought my parents where a little tough but now i realise it was to teach me to be the best version of myself and im grateful for that. I'd be more than willing to pass those values to your children too.

I look forward to seeing you soon
Kind Regards

I've worked as a kindergarten assistant teacher and as a sunday school teacher at my church these children where between 1-5 years old and i sometimes helped with the pre teens so im well balanced with handling children of different age groups. I've learnt with children that patience goes a long way as well as kindness. i have siblings younger than me therefore i know the benefits of these two qualities. I would like to be an au pair because it would give me a chance to see a different part of the world as well as experiencing different cultures and ways of life. I've always found the way in which others live to be truly exciting as i grew up in two different countries.
