Letter To My Future Host Family
Hello host family! How are you? I hope you are good.
My name is Ana Carolina and I'm 27 years old. Please, feel comfortable to call me Ana! I lived in Bauru, an interior city in São Paulo state, in Brazil. My city is also known to be a university city and because of a famous sandwich in Brazil. It is a place with very receptive people with great parks, and many cultural events.
I lived with my dad, Fabiano. He works as a security guard. He is a responsible and very careful person with our family. My mom, Erika, is the center of our family as the great mother. She works in a law office and is very affectionate, and friendly. My younger brother, Lucas, is my best friend and is the funniest person that I know. He is now at college, studying logistics. My grandmother, Ray, is the most adorable and adventurous person in my life.We also have a cat and a dog that are very important to us!
I’m currently living in the USA, in Meridianville, Alabama. I’m taking care of a 06 years old creative little girl! She likes to play imaginative games, story time, playground and swimming. My host mom is a nice and imaginative person. She likes to play board games and have fun on the river. And, of couse, an adorable kitty cat! We decided to have a friendly rematch since we have different expectations and didn’t work out together. My host mom is supportive of my decision and she is willing to give you a reference about me and my work!
My family in Brazil is also very supportive about this exchange program in the U.S.A, as they know it’s going to be very important for my life and it is very good to have an experience in another country. As the au pair program is a good combination of working with kids - that is something that i like-, traveling, and studying abroad, I can grow more as an independent person, improve my English and learn more about a new culture and to have the opportunity to challenge myself.
I would describe myself as an open-minded, independent, friendly and easygoing person. My family describes me as a responsible and resilient person and my friends describe me as a gentle person. I like to travel and explore new places, spend time with my family and friends, go to the movies and concerts but I also like to be alone to relax and rest. I like to meet new people, make new friends and be in different places.
