About Me

Hi Family !!!

I’m Irene and I’m 21 years old. I was born in Ohio, USA, but my family moved to Italy when I was only 1 ½ years old. The best portrait of my family is the one that I attached. We took it in Val Gardena (Trentino Alto Adige, Northern Italy) in the summer of 2018 during our first adventure in the new house that my parents had bought a few days before.

My family is composed by my dad Claudio (the one that took the picture), my mom Cristina (down in the center), my brother Filippo (with the orange shirt), and our beautiful dog Luna (the furry and white one). Furthermore in the right part of the picture there is my brother’s girlfriend Eleonora with her 2 brothers Francesco and Alessia, while in the left part of the picture there is my boyfriend Gianluca, me with the pink sweater, my cousin Edoardo, and my American friend Shayna.

Since my first years in Italy, every summer my parents used to hire a different girl from the USA to help me and my brother learn English. From the many stories of my childhood I was told that I wasn’t happy at all to speak another language with an unknown girl, but luckily growing up I changed my mind. Still nowadays, especially during the summer, I spend a lot of time with people that come from different cultures, mostly hosting daughters of foreign family friends. I became so fascinated with the communication and with all the different cultures, that today I am attending in the third year of the Language University in Verona.

I’m sure that being born in a foreign Country, and always being stimulated in different ways, brought me to develop a wonderful passion for travelling, but also and especially a fascination for the different languages and the cultures that surround them.

My parents were able to weave a huge net of friends all over the world by travelling a lot when they were younger (India, France, Greece, but especially USA). Having had me and my brother quite late, their desire to travel is becoming every year less and less. So I found myself to be the only one in the family with the passion of travelling, so I started to be hosted in the houses of my parent friend’s. At the age of 16 I made my first travel by myself. I took an airplane and after 9 hours I landed in the town where I lived my first year of life. I stayed 2 weeks in Ohio, and other 2 weeks at Shayna’s house in New York, to visit her and her Family.

For more than 2 years, at the University of Verona, I have been living with other 4 students that became like a second family for me.  In my free time I love to cook but especially bake. I also love to hang out with my friends and I seldom play the guitar (even if I’m not so good since I’m learning by myself).

Speaking about my relationship with kids, travelling thanks to the hospitality of other families, I was always exposed to every year range of children. I spent many years with the Scout group of my mvillage that also helped me to approach people that I am not familiar with. A family in particular brought me several times in vacation with them (Greece, Sardinia, Stresa…) so their 2 youngest daughters and I developed a wonderful relationship. I know them since they were in their mom’s tummy, but today they are already 12 and 16 years. I spent most of my time with them doing their hairs, reading them stories, baking cookies or pies together, and creating shows with finger puppies. I never formally worked as a baby sitter basically for lack of time: I always had the possibility to put my studies first.

I would like to become an Au pair for many reasons: I believe to have the capacity, the strength and the passion to carry the responsibility to take care of kids.  In second place I have a huge desire to improve my Spanish in order to be able to face the last University language exam, get closer to the Spanish culture, and if you would like it, to establish a relationship with you.

Growing up, the desire for independence brings me to prefer trips that are more challenging, probably  more satisfying, that help me to slowly ask less guidance from my parents.

Thank you for spending your time reading my letter. This would be an experience that would mean a lot to me. I can’t wait to know all of you.

Cordially

Irene
