Letter to Host Family
Dear Host Family,
Greetings of good!
I am a Nurse hailing from an archipelago in the tropics. I enjoy being out in nature, be it swimming, hiking, biking or take fishing trips. In less extreme days, I stroll in the local park and play softball or tag with the neighborhood kids or even the elderly. Indoors, I use the time to indulge in my creative side: I write and do art- mostly short hand-drawn comics or caricatures requested by my little cousins or younger sisters. I love it when their eyes sparkle when they see my cartoon drawings and they try to imitate it. The little ones are always so enthusiastic in learning how to draw.
Currently, I live with one of my younger siblings and grandparent, and in this small household, I am the designated cook and cleaner. I never sat in a cooking class, but I learned to make palatable dishes by combining tips from the internet and grandmother's kitchen wisdom.
My grandmother used to take me with her to the town library when I was just a toddler. Back then, I would flip through old volumes of National Geographic magazines and stare at the photographs of places and people of different ethnic backgrounds. From that point onwards, I've wanted to know more about foreign customs and linguistics. So, during college, I took elective courses in Spanish then Nihongo classes after graduating from nursing school. Although I was never able to master the languages aforementioned, I continuously self-practice.
As a Nurse, I have experience in managing children (and adults) with communicable and medical-surgical related diseases and I take initiative in enhancing my skills via programs and seminars about current health trends. After the Au Pair contract, I plan to pursue a Masters Degree in Nursing. Now, armed with the courage, and the formal & informal skills that a Host Family might be looking for, I then applied as a prospective Au Pair.
With all that is good,
