Letter to the family

Dear host family,

My name is Atawhai and I am currently based in Timaru, New Zealand. I am about to finish my last year of high school and I have decided to take a year off before I jump straight into university. By doing this I hope that I will be able to figure out where my interests and strengths lie so that I can eventually study what I am truly passionate about. I am 17, almost 18, and I have really enjoyed the idea of living overseas for as long as I can remember. I consider myself as a very loyal and honest person with a passion for having fun and creating fun for other people. I also consider myself as a considerate and compassionate young woman with a huge heart. However in saying this, I never let people take advantage of my kind and caring nature. You can expect that my loyalties will always remain with you and your family throughout the duration of my stay and you can expect my enthusiasm and willingness to participate in activities with your children. I am also more than happy to do daily house chores whenever required. I expect that you and your family will welcome me in warmly and that you will teach me about your culture and traditions. I also expect that I will be able to have a few days off during the year so that I may go off and travel around your beautiful county. All in all, I will show you respect and loyalty and I hope that you show me this too.

Experience

I have had experience in childcare for the past 6 years of my life. My first taste of this was when I was 12 and my youngest sister was born. Whilst my mother was working full time to provide for my siblings and I, I had no choice but to care for my youngest sister. This included getting up during the night to feed her as mum was so exhausted from working tirelessly all day, changing nappies, making bottles, feeding her, changing her and bathing her. In all honesty, I loved doing this and being a second mum to her and I would happily do it all over again if I had to. Since then, I have had multiple baby sitting jobs on weekends and during school holidays which has been a lot of fun. I have cared for children from the ages of 0 - 10 year olds and I also regularly baby sit for my nephews and niece, who are aged 2, 1 and 4 months old. Every Saturday night I babysit 2 year old, Flynn, as his parents own the local pub and get super busy. I would love to become an Au Pair abroad so that I can be exposed to different cultures and communities and I would love to educate people about where I come from and what my country is like.
