Letter to the family

My name is Taylor and I am a 22 year old College Student from Waco, Texas. I moved to Madrid Spain three years ago to pursue my love for art and learning the Spanish Language. For this reason I am double majoring in both Spanish and Art History at Saint Louis University Madrid.

I want to become an Au Pair because I firmly believe that playing with and educating children or the elderly is not only beneficial for them, but for myself as well! I believe in mutual respect and understand that I too can learn a lot from those who I care for. I have a big personality and a high level of energy, I am adaptable and easy to work with and always put my best foot forward and the needs of other ahead of myself.

Having lived in Madrid for three years now, I am accustomed to the culture and the way of life; I love the people and the opportunities that living in the city has brought me. I am also fluent in Spanish which I believe would help me communicate on a more personal level if I were to reside in Madrid.

I believe I am a strong candidate to be hosted as I have previously lived in a host home before during my first year in Spain. I enjoyed living with her and adapting to Spanish life and culture during my first year here. I am a friendly guest in every household I stay in and offer amazing "southern hospitality." Moreover, I respect and understand that as a guest in somebody else's home, I will always respect personal spaces or family time. With that in mind, I am also interested in living outside of the house in my own apartment, however, if a live in position is necessary, I am flexible.

I am an experienced candidate and worker and have Au paired before for a family in Houston, Texas, which was also a live in position for one child, age 7. As aforementioned, I come from a big family therefore I am accustomed to adapting to unexpected situations. I believe that my past experiences will show through my work if I am considered for a position.

Experience

As aforementioned, I have previously been an Au Pair in a live in experience which went very well during the summer of 2017.

The following summer, summer 2018, I returned to work for the same woman (Caroline Pallis) but this time for her company called The Change Corporation, as her personal assistant and as leader of focus groups for native Spanish Speakers in the greater Houston area. These focus groups consisted of me leading a pilot course for The Change Corporation's "Speak to Learn" language program. I was also an on camera "talent" that gave language lessons for the program that the corporation will sell.

During my last three years in Madrid, I have also been involved in language exchange programs and have experience tutoring young children weekly. I specifically worked for two different families, one with two girls ages 10 and 11, the other with two boys, ages 7 and 8.
