Sports, Interests and Hobbies
I like to skate and to ride a bike. I also enjoy watching movies and TV series. I like to cook and to also help with household chores and keep everything tidy. I love going for a walk or spending time with my family and friends, I like to swim and I like to use some accessible materials such as drawings, paintings, readings, games, books, and puzzles to be able to teach children didactically since children are very curious and learn best by experimenting with their hands. In general, I really like sports and games. I am very good at playing volleyball and soccer as well as skating.
I want to be an au pair because I like to be with children and I can take care of them and teach them everything I learned and will continue to learn. Children are always learning and I can learn from them as well. I have great skills to interact with children. Children are curious and I would like to solve the doubts they have when they grow up, so that they grow up with wonderful skills and values. I want to do this cultural exchange program to meet my new American family and to learn about their culture. I would also like to improve my English, see new places, meet new people, and share customs and celebrations of your culture. I could teach your children different kinds of sports, do arts and crafts with them, play with them in- as well as outdoors, and teach them things about my country.
