Letter to the family

Dear Host Families,
My name is Maya and I am 19 years old. I am very multicultural person of Swiss, Dutch and Ghanaian descent, living in Switzerland with my family. I am currently taking a gap year from school to focus on improving my French. I have already written my IGCSE's and am currently studying to write the Swiss Matura.
I started looking into becoming an au pair soon after I decided to take a gap year, as the concept of being fully immersed in French of different levels I believe will benefit me the most. Being able to speak French in a family setting with adults and children, in daily life with native speakers, as well as in a formal setting in class, will help me gain the confidence necessary to speak a foreign language more freely. Meeting new people and creating new friendships is also something that is certainly another reason why I chose to be an au pair.
I have 4 siblings, 2 of them are more than 10 years younger than me, so growing up I would look after them and play with them. This has helped me connect with many of the children I have looked after in the past. My mother is a very pragmatic, hands-on person so doing household chores has always been part of our life at home. We were brought up to be very responsible and to appreciate what we have in life. I did not quite inherit my mother’s love for cooking, but I can prepare basic meals using recipes.
I am very good at mathematics; science subjects in general interest me very much. Also, English literature is a subject I have always loved. I would of course be more than happy to help the children in any way I can with any school work they find challenging. Grew up speaking English and German at home and in school.
As a family oriented person, I enjoy spending time with my family regardless of what we are doing. I love families that are cheerful and enjoy family time together. This family time is missing in my present position, where both parents are very focused on work and the single child keeps very much to herself. There is not enough interaction for me, and so I am not really learning as much French as I would like to.
