Letter to the family

Hello! My name is Claire . I am 22 years old from Dallas, Texas. I am a graduate of the University of New England in the state of Maine, with a degree in History and Global Studies, and a minor in Political Science. I chose this degree path because I fell in love with living abroad and cultural studies. I do have experience living abroad, in Cascais, Portugal for two years with my family, and Paris, France for four months as a student. This experience taught me adaptability in a new environment and a passion to explore and understand new cultures, people’s, and places.

I want to become an Au Pair because I want to continue to explore this side of my passion before falling into a corporate job closer to my degree path. I have significant experience in child care, mostly due to nearly a decade of babysitting. I have two younger sisters, the littlest of which is ten years younger than me. Thanks to our age gap, and several years of babysitting experience, I feel comfortable and qualified to apply for an Au Pair position. I have experience babysitting children from 0-12 years of age, and have spent a day watching up to 4 at a time. I have also volunteered in a refugee community, so have experience working with and handling emotional and traumatized children. This position was considered an after-school care assistant, so I had to exercise firm control in a classroom setting. Because of this experience, as well as babysitting, I am able to offer homework help.

Whoever may hire me should be comforted and confident that I am family-oriented, experienced, and will look after your entire family with the best care. I have long wanted to work with children and will always put their best interest first. I can be serious and strict when needed, but I also love to play hard and teach important life lessons!

Experience

I have no experience as an Au Pair, but I do with other forms of childcare. I have been babysitting since I was about 12 years old, first with my youngest sister, and then around my neighborhood and beyond. I have overnight experience with children ages 0-12, and with one family watched 4 kids at one time. I love a challenge, but I also love working with children.
I would like to become an Au Pair abroad because I can combine my love of travel and working with children.
