Letter to the family

Dear future host family,

I'm Zuzanna and I can't wait to meet you already!

As much as my little 9 year old sister will always be the apple of my eye, I love all children. I've always wanted to work as a nanny or au pair abroad; I see this as a great opportunity to bond with new people, experience a great travel adventure, and hopefully leave a positive influence on a child for life - after all, children are our future. I figured that between degrees (my bachelors and my masters) would be the perfect time to do this.

I will be going back to work as soon as I graduate in order to save money for my master's degree, so I am looking to leave to go au-pairing no earlier than July 2021, and no later than June 2022. I am open to different durations and locations of my stay, as at this point it is still very preemptive planning for me.

As for practical information, I do not currently hold a driver's license but I'm hoping to obtain it (in the UK) before setting off. I'll be living in Durham, England until August 2021, and then I suspect I will return to my parents' in Jersey, Channel Islands, until I leave for my au pair job. Although I'm Polish, I've lived in the UK since I was 5, so I am very in touch with British culture and definitely have elements of both cultures in my personality.
You might also want to know that I'm not personally religious, but I was brought up in a Catholic family so I have no problem adapting to a family with Christian values and going to/ taking kids to church.

I'm more than happy to send you my CV if you wish to see my job experience, just let me know.

Experience

I mentioned my sister (Izabella, but I call her Bubu); I was 12 when she was born, and I've been looking after her on a regular basis since. We are very close, and I love her unconditionally. Having busy Polish parents with high expectations meant I was expected to fulfil parenting duties during most holidays and days off, so I am confident in taking care of the needs of a baby, toddler, and a small child. No need to worry about a responsible adult either, as I've been living away for 4 years now at university - and I've even lived alone in Italy and Belgium, too. I am a patient person too, who always tries to be as pragmatic as possible in the face of conflict or difficulty. I think my greatest quality is that I am very honest and try to be as straightforward without being blunt - I go by the belief that communication is the key to any relationship, so I am sure we will have no problems if you believe this too!
