Letter to the family

Originally translated from Français
My name is Gemma, I will be 20 in May and I am Italian. Actually, I was born in Vietnam, but I was adopted when I was very young (6 months), so, yes, I consider myself 100% Italian. However, I also like to consider myself a bit international, and after graduating from Liceo Classico, I nevertheless chose to continue my studies in literature in Paris at Sorbonne University.
If a year ago someone asked me how I would have defined myself, I would have said “student”: I have always really cared for my school career. However, during this bizarre year (the covid, my move to Paris) allowed me to see things from a different perspective. Indeed, today I would rather call myself an ambitious person, very determined and with a lot of desire to discover the world and life.
To be admitted to the Sorbonne, I studied French from scratch on my own for more or less a year. Afterwards, in Paris I rented a room at the inhabitant for 6 months (a little while ago I returned to Italy for the covid) and this allowed me, all together, to reach a level of French that 'today I consider not too bad. But, especially as a mad lover of my mother tongue and passionate about the idea of ​​being able to express oneself with a vast vocabulary, I still have to work a lot: this is the first reason why I would like to be a girl. au pair.
Beyond the linguistic aspect, I think I can say that I have a great deal of interest: I love reading, art, theater. I danced for 16 years, I love music, landscapes, walking in beautiful landscapes. I like to chat, but also silence. But I actually think the thing I love most is learning.
I am a responsible, punctual, determined girl, but not too hard.
I have never been an au pair before, but as I have already said, in Paris I rented a room with a family where there was an eleven year old girl: I did not have to take care of her, but I liked doing it. I am motivated and motivating: I have no doubt that I can take good care of children. In addition, I know how to take care of almost all the housework (cooking, ironing ...) which I believe is always useful.
I don't want to wait until the end of the pandemic to do what I want, and this experience seems like a perfect opportunity to make the most of my summer.
