Letter to the family

Hello! ^-^
Dear Host Family,
thank you for taking the time to read my letter.
My name is Galina (or just Galya) and I am 23 years old. I am living in Voronezh, which is a big city in the South of Russia. I recently graduated from the University and got the bachelor's degree in the International Economics. (If your child is interested in economics, mathematics, I will be happy to teach). I studied in an international group with Chinese students. This amazing chance gave me a cultural exchange, a positive mood and the ability to find a common language with different people.I also completed a one-year English course by the Cambridge University, it is confirmed by an international certificate.
In my spare time, I love to ride a bicycle, I am big fan of cycling. I have drawing skills, I also like singing, music, especially I love to listen songs in Dutch, French and Korean languages. One of my favorite singers is Niels Destadsbader and it's my big dream to visit his concert. ^-^ I was also a member of the school theater. I like creativity, I played such characters like the father of Ophelia from Hamlet, the dwarf from Snow White. :D It sounds quite funny and surprising, but it was easy for me to play any character. I did it with a great pleasure.
I would like to talk about my character, because I think that this is an important part in order to adopt a person into the family. I am calm, cheerful, kind person. I can confidently say that I faithfully complete all tasks. The important part for me is openness and honesty. Living with me is really easy as I am not a demanding person. I do respect that the house is your house and that I have follow your house rules. If something works not quite as it should, I prefer to talk instead of ignoring things. My calm and patient personality will help me to master more difficult situations for instance when the kids are tired or don’t want to listen to me.
About my family. I am the only child in the family. My mother is Elena. She works as a make-up artist in the perfume and cosmetics store L'etoile. The name of my father is Kakha. He works as an engineer. My family is international. My mother is Russian, my father is Svan. The Svans are an ethnic subgroup of the Georgians living mostly in Svaneti, a region in northwest Georgia. They are abolutly very positive people. We often go to the forest, travel around Russia and abroad. I have so many cousins. I love them very much. We often spend time together, especially in the summer and the winter vacation. Together we often play, draw, go hiking (if we spend time in the countryside with our grandmother or with our grandparents in Georgia).I really enjoy cooking. We bake cookies with children sometimes. They like sweets so much and they are interested of participation of the cooking process. I also like to do homework with the children, because I can help and teach them something, in turn, they can share something interesting with me. I worked in Lego store and often communicated with children. It was a really interesting experience.
Why do I want to be an au pair abroad? I think this is a great chance to get a cultural exchange, learn the traditions and culture of the country, people's lifestyle. It is also a good language practice, positive emotions from communicating with children, with family. I would like to continue my education in Russia in the social sphere. The opportunity to communicate with family and children, support and help will be an invaluable experience for me.
This is a rather long letter, but you can know more about me from this.
I am really curious to hear all about you and your children. I hope you like my letter and I can’t wait to hear back from you.

Experience

I had a unique experience working with children. I work in a Lego store. It gave me great pleasure to communicate with children. Discovering a new world for them. We played together, discussed the latest construction toys and cartoons based on Lego. Honestly, I am a big fan of Lego and it’s super interesting when the children know more than you and can teach you something, in turn you can give them positive and fun.
I also have a very big family. Both in Georgia and in Russia. I have 7 cousins. I love them so much. Two girls and five boys. We often spend time together. Especially during summer and winter holidays in Georgia.Together we often play, draw, go hiking . I really like to do homework with the children, because I can help and teach them something, in turn, they can share something interesting with me.
I have a certificate of First Aid courses
