Letter from Sandra to her future host family:
Dear Potential Host Family
My name is Sandra. I am 26 years old and I come from South Africa. I am truly excited to come back to the USA for a second time and be an au pair again!
I am very loving, compassionate, humorous, and I absolutely adore kids! I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love the outdoors and when the weather is nice I love going to the beach or a pool and having fun in the water. I love the American entertainment industry and enjoy shows like The Bachelor, Survivor and Grey's Anatomy to name a few. I also love being expressive and creative so I studied performing arts. I have been dancing since a young age, but I also love singing and acting. I really enjoy a wide range of sports and don't mind getting down and dirty with little boys and playing soccer or wrestling. I love animals and like to go to the zoo or a petting farm often.
I would make the perfect Au pair for you as I have a lot of experience throughout my life. I lived in America for 18 months as an Au pair and it taught me a great deal about looking after kids and looking after myself. I am very adaptable to most situations and I will quickly acclimatize to life in the US. I am very creative, smart and well mannered. I would be able to teach the kids about my culture and morals, and also just life lessons in general based on my own life experiences and things we will experience together. I would give them all my love and affection and treat them like they are my younger siblings and definitely grow a friendship that can last a life time.
The most important skills I have learned from working with kids is that a kind heart and a big smile can go a long way. It has taught me to be extremely empathetic, compassionate and caring. It has taught me that patience can help even the most daring situations and that being open minded to situations is the best way to go about life. It has taught me that everybody has "bad days", and that it is okay to sometimes be sad or hurt or angry and that a big hug and an ice cream can put a smile on any sad face!
So please consider me to be your new family member if you are looking for a wise yet fun big sister that makes silly jokes and faces... alot!!!
Looking forward to meeting you,
