My name is
Dear Sir or Madam, my name is Anna-Lena and I am 18 years old. I am living together with my parents, my brother and my dog in the west of Germany near the city Dusseldorf. Currently, I am spending my last year at school and I will finish with my general qualification for university entrance (German Abitur) in July 2017. After school, I intend to take a gap year in order to travel and to get to know new cultures and people. Moreover, I want to confirm my future plans. I aim to either study Psychology or to become a teacher for secondary school. I am interested in working with children and like teaching them. Therefore, I would like to apply for an au pair abroad in the middle of January until the end of June 2018. The period of time is variable. I have some experiences with children. In October 2016 I occupied two girls at an age of two and five for one week in Salzburg. Moreover, I have provided tuition for students between 13 and 16 years for four years now. Since Year 3 in school, I have attended English classes and right now I have English as an advanced level subject. Moreover, I participated in two exchanges with schools in England and did an internship at the Times in London. I enjoyed being in a new family and getting to know new manners. Consequently, I can speak English fluently. For five years, I am learning French. As I am a German native speaker, I am able to teach the guest children in German if desired. In my free time I prefer to go horse riding, to dance and to play the piano. Moreover, I like to go jogging together with my mother and my dog. Preferably, I spend time with my family and friends. Usually, on Sunday evening my parents and I play games or watch a movie. Since I am 17 years old, I have had a driving license and I will apply for an international driving license if necessary. In addition, in school I have done an apprenticeship as a school mediator. I helped younger students to solve their conflicts in school. It was a pleasure for me to free their minds from their sorrows. I make an effort in my work and I am reliable. In addition, I would enjoy the challenge to meet new people from other nationalities and maybe find new friends. I would welcome the opportunity to be an au pair in your family. I can be contacted most easily by e-mail or telephone. Yours sincerely, Anna-Lena
