Letter To My Future Host Family
Dear Host Family!
I´m so glad and excited to write to you for the first time!
I love the human mind and body, but what I love the most are the emotions, that’s why I studied phycology, I graduated in 2019, from Universidad del Norte. During my studies, I took a national and also international internship. The first one, was in Bogota, in 2016, for 6 months, I was amazing! I loved it and learned a lot. The international one was in Santiago de Chile, Chile, in 2018, was my first time ever working with patients, I was so nervous! But it all went perfectly. I love knowing new people and places, but it was an absolute challenge for me. Because, even though in Chile they also speak Spanish, as we do in Colombia, they have a completely different vocabulary!
As for hobbies, I like to read, go swimming, go to the beach, or watch Netflix, there are pretty good ones. One of my passions is dancing, I also like cooking, I took a little online course, about pastry. Let´s bake some brownies!
About my experience with children, I have 8 nieces and nephews! I have taken care of them since they were born, my first nephew is 14years old now, I helped by giving him bottles, changing his diapers, changing his clothes, showering him since he was a baby, I was his age when I first started, then I helped with my other nieces but they moved far from where I was living. And then Roberto and martin came, Roberto was a premature baby, I was kind of scared, but I wanted to help to look after him, I was 15, he is nine years old now, I remember, carrying him, he was so tiny, little boy, I have loved him since I saw him, that´s why he says I´m his favorite aunt, haha. Roberto and martin are brothers, but Martin is 7 years old now, I´ve taken care of them both, at least one hour or two, (depending on if I had exams) since they were born, I love going with them and my sisters to the cinema, eating ice cream, reading books, or going horseback riding ( that´s Roberto favorite thing to do), they´re very honest, so I also take them with me when I go shopping.
I have also taken care of a little girl, she´s my friend now, she is 6 years old, and she taught me her favorite song “night begins to shine” from teen titans! And I taught her how to dance cumbia, and how to cook arepas, and some other things. I have a lot to learn from you guys! And I also want to teach you about me and my culture!
I hope to see you soon, sending you lots of hugs.
