Letter To My Future Host Family
Dear host family,
I am pleased to submit my application as an au pair for your kind family in the United States. Allow me to share relevant information about myself so that you can get to know me better. My name is Melany Gonzalez, I am 25 years old, and I live in Baranoa, Atlántico, Colombia, near Barranquilla city, with my parents and nephews.
As a teacher by profession, I have had the wonderful opportunity to work with children for several years, which has been a rewarding and enriching experience. I have taught students aged six and above, providing them with educational and emotional support. This experience has allowed me to understand the individual needs of children and adapt my teaching approach to meet their specific requirements.
From an early age, I have felt a special connection with children. When I was eleven, I became an aunt, and the school I attended had a pedagogical foundation. The genuineness, curiosity, and energy of children are qualities that I deeply admire. I have had the opportunity to care for and guide several children in my environment, including my nephews and the children of friends and neighbors. I love witnessing their growth and development, and it is very rewarding to positively influence their lives. During my caregiving experiences, I have engaged in activities such as outdoor games, crafts, reading, teaching other languages, and fostering interest in favorite sports, promoting their creativity, learning, and fun.
One of the most important qualities I offer to children is my patience and ability to listen. I firmly believe in the importance of providing them with a safe and loving environment where they feel valued and supported. My goal is to establish a trusting relationship with the children and be a role model in their lives, encouraging them to express themselves freely and develop their autonomy.
In addition to the above, I am familiar with household chores and responsibilities, which has helped me develop organizational and time management skills. Furthermore, I possess a basic knowledge of first aid and I am willing to receive any additional training required to ensure the safety and well-being of your children.
The Au Pair program represents an exciting opportunity for me. I would love to immerse myself in your culture and way of life while sharing my knowledge and experiences with your family. I am eager to establish meaningful connections with you and learn from your unique parenting style.
Among my qualities and skills, I highlight my commitment, responsibility, and ability to adapt to different situations. I am an organized, patient, and affectionate person, always ready to provide a safe and stimulating environment for the children under my care.
I sincerely appreciate your time and consideration in reviewing my application. Also, I am available for interviews and would be delighted to discuss further how I can be a valuable au pair for your family.
Thank you in advance for your attention, and I hope to have the opportunity to become part of your home as an au pair.
