Letter to the family

Dear Family,

My name is Merle. I am 17 years old and currently in my senior year of high school at Shanghai Community International School, Shanghai, China. I was born in Germany and moved to Shanghai in 2006 with my family. Having four siblings (19, 14, 11 and under the age of 1 year) has allowed me to feel comfortable taking care of children of all ages. I am also a very pet-friendly person having grown up with cats and dogs in our family home. Throughout my high school years, I have done occasional babysitting but look forward to gaining more professional experience working as an Au Pair after graduation in May.

A little bit more about me:

My family would describe me as an outgoing and friendly person who enjoys spending time around others. I am fluent in both English and German along with a moderate understanding of Chinese. I love traveling to new places and learning about new cultures! My hobbies include snowboarding, photography, and writing. I especially enjoy updating my lifestyle blog which started as a school project!

Licenses, certification, and tutoring:

I have had two years of assisted driving experience and will be applying for a driver’s license this summer (July/2020). I am also certified in emergency childcare first aid and CPR, completed Feb/2020. In addition to this, I also have some tutoring experience for grade 10 students and can help with homework in a variety of subjects.

If you’re a busy family with a lot of energy, I am perfect for you! I love spending time with children and will make sure I keep them on their feet. As a very clean and organized person, I can do housework and cooking, as well as, shopping and errands.

I am very excited to start work and hope you will consider me to be part of your family!

Best Regards,

I would love to become an Au Pair abroad in order to gain more professional experience in childcare. I love taking care of younger children, playing and spending time with them. I did occasional babysitting for children from up to 6 months to 5 years of age throughout my high school years, volunteered part-time in a Chinese International Kindergarten and spend a lot of time with my siblings (I have a 3 month-old brother). Another reason why I considered becoming an Au Pair is that growing up I spent a lot of time around Au Pairs myself and would love to experience the other perspective. Through this experience, I hope to spend more time around children as well as learn about a new culture and/or language!
