Letter To My Future Host Family
Dear host family,
My name is Jonatã and I am 24 years old. I live with a roommate and my kitty in Campinas, a beautiful city in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. My family lives in Itápolis, about 3 hours from here, but I always visit them on weekends. I graduated from college 3 years ago and am currently studying two post-graduation courses.
I currently work as a teacher for teenagers and adults, but I have already had the opportunity to teach kids from different ages. This passion for kids and education led me to a volunteer program in Peru, where I assisted another teachers in classrooms, helping with activities and also teaching a little about Brazil. Furthermore, while volunteering in Peru I had the chance to live with a host family. It was an amazing experience and they are still my family, we are always in touch.
Volunteering is really important to me. I started volunteering as a teenager when I participated to the Rotary International club. As an adult I have also volunteered at a day care center, assisting educators with childcare.
In my spare time I love reading self development books and novels. Reading is the best way I found to improve myself as a person and also helps me with my language skills. Besides my native language, which is Portuguese, I speak English and a bit of Spanish.
I also love music. I am always singing around, so I hope you don't mind if I you hear my off-key voice coming from the kitchen once a while. This passion started as a kid, when I learned how to play the flute. Then I took acoustic guitar and electric keyboard lessons. Finally, at 11 years old, I found out what I really love playing when I started my piano lessons. I have studied piano for 6 years.
I would love to be your next au pair because I love kids and my experiences with them showed me that having them around makes me happy. I love spending time with the little ones and I am sure we are going to have a great time together. I know that being an au pair requires some skills and it will not always be just about playing and having fun, but I am prepared and my patient and calm personality will help me master some difficult situations that may occur.
I am a family person, so I would love to be part of your family and participate on events and special occasions with you, but I don't mind if you prefer doing some activities by yourselves. I am a respectful and easygoing person, so I will not have problems with the rules of the house.
I am looking forward to hearing more about your family and meet your kids.
