Letter to the family

Hello future host family! My name is Phoebe, but I am known as Bee to my friends and family. I'm 24 years old and for the past 18 months I have been living in Italy as an au pair. It has been the most fantastic experience and I would love to carry on my au pair journey for a while longer, working with children and joining a great family while I really learn the language. After my au pair stay, when I go to experience new countries and cultures, I hope I will still be in touch with my host family. I want to create a real bond with the family I work with and be more than just an employee.

I love seeing the world and experiencing different countries. I studied English language and archaeology at school and I love history, culture, and talking about languages! I learnt Italian during my time au pairing but I would love for it to be even better.

I can be very silly and energetic with children, but don't worry - I am a very responsible and serious person when I need to be. Kids need to know that they can have fun with me but they also need to know when it's time to behave as well. My previous host kids would be able to tell you this is the truth. I love to learn about my host children's interests and hopefully teach them some things about my interests too. But mostly, I'm a person that loves to be outside, whether that means catching Pokemon, skating, walking the dogs or swimming in the lakes. I love all of it! I hope that my new younger sibling/s will be just as happy to be outside as I am.

I look forward to meeting your family!

Experience

My previous experiences as an au pair for two families in Italy have been invaluable. Over 18 month, I made such good connections with both of these families and I am so lucky to have had such wonderful experiences with them.

I have been working mainly with older children - my youngest little brother was already 10! This didn't mean that we weren't still playing silly games though. When I first arrived, we had a little trouble communicating because his English wasn't great and my Italian sucked! But now we only say one or two words in Italian - we almost always speak English because his language has improved so much.

My experience as an au pair has really taught me just how different every child is. It may take a little while to create that perfect bond with a new adult in their life, but if you give them all as much time as they need, you will soon have a new best friend.
