Letter to the family

Hello! My name is Mackenzie and I am a current University student looking to work abroad as an Au Pair during my school breaks.

A little about myself…
I am currently 21 years old and the eldest sibling of four. I know, that’s a lot of kids! With such a big family, I’ve been taking care of children since I was a child myself. Needless to say, I truly adore working with kids and find it to be both fun and gratifying. I can’t wait to start my own family one day.
My favorite hobbies include hiking, surfing, cooking, drawing, and reading. I also enjoy writing and playing the piano. Harry Potter and Gone Girl are my favorite novels to date. I enjoy reading fantasy, like Game of Thrones, and science fiction, like The Martian.
When I was in secondary school, I began entering poetry competitions. This was my first experience writing on a more competitive and professional level, and resulted in a multitude of publications for me. Eventually, I decided to write and publish my own book, In A Game of Wits, which I finally completed in College.
I adore being both a teacher and student. In 2018 I traveled to Vietnam with a branch of the Peace Corps to teach English to children. This was one of the most challenging and gratifying experiences I’ve had to date and only further fueled my passion to work with children in cultures that are different from my own.

Which brings me to this letter! I joined Au Pair because of my dedication and adoration for teaching and learning. Working with children requires me to both be a teacher and a student. As I share things with a child, they do the same with me. It’s an absolutely incredible experience. Being responsible for the wellbeing of another human, a child, is something that honors and humbles me.

I hope this letter serves to show you a bit more about myself. It’s difficult to convey everything I’d like to say within such a short amount of time! Please reach out to me with questions or comments. I would love to hear from you.

Kindly,
Mackenzie
