Letter to the family

Originally translated from Deutsch
Dear host family,

My name is Pietra Ruiz and I am pleased to apply for the position of Au Pair in your family. Over the course of my 19 years, I have taken advantage of opportunities to learn and grow, and a year and a half ago I decided to embark on a trip to Germany. I am currently completing my Voluntary Social Year, and every day of this experience has been a source of excitement and learning.

Getting to know German culture and improving the language was an incredible journey for me. Additionally, I have had a strong connection with children throughout my life. I worked in an NGO for a year where we transformed ourselves into superheroes to visit sick children in hospitals and give them moments of joy and hope. I also looked after neighbors' children on weekends and developed handling and responsibility skills.

My decision to work as an au pair in Germany is driven by my passion for people's customs and languages. I would like to make this experience even more intense by spending a year in your country, and combining this passion with my natural affinity for children is an incredible opportunity. In addition, it is important to emphasize that I already speak German and have completed a first aid course, which is a differentiator and also important to establish a better connection with the children.

I am competent, attentive, patient and creative. I love creating new games with the children, helping with homework, and enjoy assisting parents with light household tasks, including looking after pets.

I believe that I qualify for the Au Pair position because I know that I make a difference in people's lives by taking care of the little ones. When I'm older, I dream of having a large family with four children and this opportunity to work as an au pair would be a significant step in that direction.

I am very excited about the opportunity to become part of your family and contribute to your children's lives in a positive way. I would like to thank you in advance for considering my application.

Best regards,

Pietra Ruiz

My experience in childcare was diverse and full of fulfilling moments. For over a year I had the opportunity to work in a non-profit organization where I was involved in special activities. We wore superhero costumes and visited sick children in hospitals. At these meetings, we dedicated ourselves to reading exciting stories and participating in games to brighten their day. This experience taught me the importance of bringing joy and hope to children in difficult times.

In addition, I had the responsibility of looking after children aged 2 to 8, both from neighbors and friends of my parents. As an older sister, I looked after my brother, who is seven years younger than me. When our mother had to work, I took on the role of caregiver and older sister to ensure he was safe, fed and entertained.

My experience here in Germany has also contributed to my development in childcare. In my current work, I am sometimes involved in playful activities with the children, from educational games to cooking together. These interactions provide me with the opportunity to develop communication, patience and creativity skills while building meaningful relationships with the children.

Throughout these experiences, I internalized the importance of being a reliable, loving and attentive figure in children's lives. Every moment I spent caring for her taught me valuable lessons about empathy, responsibility and gratitude.
