Hello host family, my name is Gabriel.
I'm 24 years old, I'm from Mauá - São Paulo, Brazil, but currently I live in Denver, Colorado with my actual host family.
About me: In Brazil I live with my mother Isabel, and our dog Olivia.
My mother is a quality inspector and my brother is a math teacher. Unfortunately four years ago my father passed away.
I am a photographer and I love what I do. It will be a pleasure to show you my work and even take some pictures of your family! I also went to college to study Biology because I love teaching, I love animals and I love studying life but now I`m taking a break of those classes to dedicate myself to the au pair program.
I love seeing things in a different perspective and I think this is what the au pair program is all about: different cultures connecting and sharing new things.
I like to hangout with my friends, go to the church sometimes, take walks at the park, and travel . I don`t really like to drink, sometimes I like to go to a bar with friends and family for a good laugh and eat, and I love to cook.
I took care of Isabela for a year, from her 6th to 18th month old. I've also taken for twins Henrique and Clara from their 3 and half to 4 years old, it was a wonderful adventure. In the volunteer work there were children of all ages. Here in Denver I take care of a 1 year old baby and a 10 year old boy, but when I arrived they were 6 months and 9 years old.
My routine is to pick them up from daycare and school, feed them, take care of the laundry and watch them while my host parents work.
I have worked with children at home under my care, in church assisting a teacher who taught children and this has created a special feeling in me, I love doing it and being with them is a lovely job so I want to be able to keep doing that.
I am responsible, fun, organized, quiet, flexible, independent and passionate about everything I do.
I like to do different activities with kids and I am very creative. In my experiences, I try to be as dynamic as possible in the routine with children, taking places for walking, or driving, outdoor activity and etc.
My current host family and I are close friends, and I am in love with them and the kids, I never went through the rematch, we have a excellent relationship, but I decided not to stay another year here, to have the opportunity to visit new places, explore a new experience, this is a benefit that exchange offers us.
They are also open to talk to you and talk a little about me in this next year of extension, if necessary.
I believe in love and all its variations, that's all.
It would be a pleasure to be part of your family and I can't wait to chat and learn more about you all!
See you soon.
Yours Truly, Gabs!
