Letter to the family

Dear host family, my name is Finja and I live with my parents, Annett and Helmut, near Heidelberg in southern Germany. My father is a mechanical engineer, and my mother is a chemist. My older sister Enya studies in Hamburg and therefore does not live with us anymore. On the weekends we like to play games, go for walks, have movie nights, and ride our bikes. My mom and I started working out together every day during the first lockdown, and still do every day. In general, I would say that I am a very active person, before Covid-19 I swam, did kickboxing and couple dancing. Other hobbies of mine are playing piano, running, cycling, and listening to music. I am an open, curious, funny, ambitious, responsible, and patient person. I love meeting new people and different cultures, so I have done several exchanges so far. I did my first exchange to France when I was 10 years old, for 10 weeks. Two years later I went back for another six weeks and the year after that I went to Spain for ten weeks. In 10th grade, I did a high school year in the United States. Through all my exchanges, I learned to take responsibility for myself, but also for those around me, as I often had younger host siblings to take care of when the host parents were not around. Back home, I volunteered to help take care of a children's gymnastics group with children between the age of 4 and 7). It was amazing for me to see them grow a little each week and to be the one they turned to when they had problems. I also gave piano lessons to my piano teacher's daughter (8 years old) in exchange for my piano lessons. But it was much more than just a way to earn my piano lessons. I had so much fun helping her get better and finding ways to explain it to her in a way that she could remember. I also did an internship at a kindergarten, which gave me more experience with children. I really enjoyed playing with the children and helping them form their personalities. This is one of the reasons why I want to become an au pair, I want to help children form their identity and support them in their journey of growing up. I grew up with au pairs and I loved it. I had someone to turn to for advice besides my parents and they were a role model for me. I want to give that feeling and experience to other kids and be a role model for them. The reason why they want to be an au pair later and why they are the person they are, the way they are.
