Letter to the family

Hi! My name is Lucia and I am from Virginia, USA. I grew up outside of Washington, D.C but I have lived in Arizona, California, and Colorado as well. This month, I graduated college with a Bachelor of Science in Urban Planning and a minor in Geography from Arizona State University. I am looking for a post-grad adventure and being an au pair seems to be calling my name. Traveling and experiencing new foods and cultures is a huge part of my life, so I want to experience life in another country while I am still young. Since I have lived in various places before the age of 25, I am extremely adaptable.

My mother is from Colombia and my dad is from Puerto Rico so growing up, my siblings and I visited every few years. Life is all about having experiences where you can make life long connections. I genuinely enjoy getting to know people and being a listener to others. I have heard great things about being an au pair and cannot think of a better way to immerse myself in another culture. I enjoy working with kids, as they allow for us to see life differently and experience things all over again. I am fluent in English and Spanish and would love to help my host family learn about my culture and language while I learn about theirs.

Experience

Aside from taking care of my siblings growing up until I was in high school, I have babysit neighbors' children and relatives. I have also babysat for my mom's clients from time to time. My only first cousin and I have a huge age difference, as he is only two years old, so I often babysit him whenever my aunt and uncle need a break. I have babysit from the ages of 0-14 and feel comfortable working with all ages. I also nannied during the pandemic for a 5 year old boy who was virtual learning in kindergarten.

I will be an au pair this summer in Turkey for the first time!
