Letter To My Future Host Family

Updated Letter
Dear host family,
I hope you can know more about me, so I will let you know who I am. My name is Mercedes Puglisi, I’m 20 years old and I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina, with my parents, George and Silvina, my brother Gianluca and my lovely puppy Toretto. At the moment, I’m studying at university Government and International Relations.
If I had to describe myself I would definitely say that I am cheerful, responsible and empathic. Also I’m kind, understanding, helpful and patient, sociable and pleasant. I should mention in this point that I speak English well but sometimes speaking it I feel insecure and a bit introverted. However, I improved it a lot since I arrived to the US.
In my daily routine I’m organized, dynamic, productive, active and a hard working person. That’s the reason why I can do many things at the same time. In addition, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, but specially with dogs, I really love them. In my free time I use to go outside for a walk while I listen to music. I also like reading books and newspapers to being always noticed; but I prefer writing!! I love doing crafts, watching movies, cooking, meeting new people, going out with friends or preparing specials meals for my family. I’m a girl who loves travelling around the world to discover new places, people and cultures. That’s a reason why I applied to the program. I believe that travelling is a good way to connect with myself or to know better my friends or family.
I love children because they know how to get my best version. I try to teach them to do their best. It is grateful to me spending time with them and learning everything they can teach me day by day. I think that they learn a lot of us, but we learn more from them than we think. To me it is a wonderful adventure see them growing up and learning to be more free and independent.
I have experience taking care children from 11 months to 14 years old. Most of my experiences were being a babysitter, although I also have experience teaching kids. As a babysitter/nanny, I took care of Lucio, my cousin, when my uncle needed it. Afterwards, I took care of Antonia usually 4 times a week since she was 2 years old until the pandemic when she was 3 years’ old. I also took care of Manuel and Mirko, two 6-7 years old incredible boys with which I learnt a lot and I increased my love for children. In addition to the above, as a babysitter/nanny I took care of 2 sisters called Martina and Pilar, 2 amazing and sweetie girls of 2 and 4 years old. We were neighbors until they moved out of town. Also, I took care of Valentino since he was a baby (11 months) and his sister Lucia, who actually is 5 years old. I took care of Justiniano, a beautiful kid of 4 years old. Her mother was my mother’s best friend, so I know the child since he was born.
Currently, I’m taking care of 2 amazing boys, Konrad, who is 2 years old, and Elias who is a baby. I love this little guys so much.
With children, I did all duties related with them, specially preparing their snack for school or meals when their mother wasn´t at home. Also, other responsibilities with them were to wake them up every morning, make breakfast for them, take them to school/kindergarten, tidy up their room and take them to their extra activities. When they came back from school/kindergarten I helped them with the homework. After that I used to play with kids until bath time and then I used to prepare their dinner until their parents came back home from work. With children, we also went to the park, play games or cook. Cooking is the activity that I enjoy doing the most with them. About the baby, my duties were to change his diapers, make him sleep, dress him, prepare his bottle and entertain him. I use to prepare children interactive and dynamic games to make out time together unforgettable.
Unfortunately, I´m in rematch with my current host family. Despite I love their children so much, I decided to start this process because I don’t feel comfortable with them. They don’t respect my schedule; they arrive always late. I´m pretty sure that this was the correct decision.
Do you want to know the reasons why I decided to begin an Au Pair? There are many, as I mentioned first, but the principal is because I love kids so much. Also, my family and friends said to me that I am a very motherly, responsible and loving person. I am delighted to have the opportunity to continue improving my English, know your country and culture, which I really admire, and of course meet your habits and lifestyle. Other motivation for becoming an Au pair is the possibility that this program gives me to live abroad to work and travel.
To conclude, I´m an experienced driver. I drive since December 2020 when I got the license, reason why I could be a good option if I have to take children somewhere.
I hope you can give me the opportunity to work with you taking care of your kids. I am so excited to be a member of your family and know you better, specially the children. I hope meet you soon!!
With love,

Mechi

Dear host family, I hope you can know more about me, so I will let you know who I am. My name is Mercedes Puglisi, I’m 20 years old and I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina, with my parents, George and Silvina, my brother Gianluca and my lovely puppy Toretto. At the moment, I’m studying at university Government and International Relations. If I had to describe myself I would definitely say that I am a little bit anxious, cheerful, responsible and empathic. Also I’m kind, understanding, helpful and patient, sociable and pleasant. I should mention in this point that I speak English well but sometimes speaking it I feel insecure and a bit introverted. However, I am working hard to trying to be better. In my daily routine I’m organized, dynamic, productive, active and a hard working person. That’s the reason why I can do many things at the same time. In addition, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, but specially with dogs, I really love them. In my free time I use to go outside for a walk while I listen to music. I also like reading books and newspapers to being always noticed; but I prefer writing!! I love doing crafts, watching movies, cooking, meeting new people, going out with friends or preparing specials meals for my family. As I said before, I’m a girl who loves travelling around the world to discover new places, people and cultures. That’s a reason why I applied to the program. I believe that travelling is a good way to connect with myself or to know better my friends or family. In fact, in 2019 I have travelled to Brighton, UK, to improve my English and to have a full contact with new people and a new culture. I love children because they know how to get my best version. I try to teach them to do their best. It is grateful to me spending time with them and learning everything they can teach me day by day. I think that they learn a lot of us, but we learn more from them than we think. To me it is a wonderful adventure see them growing up and learning to be more free and independent.

Teaching, I have experience with children from 8 years old to 13 years old. I helped them do their homework for their tests, specially of history, math and natural sciences. To do it I decided to prepare interactive and dynamic classes to made them more interesting and funny. Together we read related books and we watched related videos. Also, we learned the content drawing the parts of the body or practicing math accounts with songs. We also looked at images related to this subjects. It was a great experience because I discovered how much I like to teach. Do you want to know the reasons why I decided to begin an Au Pair? There are many, as I mentioned first, but the principal is because I love kids so much. Also, my family and friends said to me that I am a very motherly, responsible and loving person, and I would like to confess that without their support I would never have encouraged this program. They are very happy for me. I am delighted to have the opportunity to improve my English, know your country and culture, which I really admire, and of course meet your habits and lifestyle. Other motivation for becoming an Au pair is the possibility that this program gives me to live abroad to work and travel. To conclude, I would add that I drive since December 2020 when I got the license, reason why I could be a good option if I have to take children somewhere. I hope you can give me the opportunity to work with you taking care of your kids. I am so excited to be a member of your family and know you better, specially the children. I hope meet you soon!!
