Thank you for taking the time to read my letter!
My name is Maria (Mery, for short). I‘m 25 years old and currently living in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I‘m your local artist, pet lover and family girl! I’m really fun, witty and I have a strong personality. I like to see the positive in everything. I’m charismatic and social, I consider myself an outgoing and active person, with a developed willpower. I truly enjoy helping others and I'm a really good listener.
My main reason to be an aupair is to gain experience in life, open my horizons; I also always wanted to learn and be part of a new culture, and fulfill that dream in this way sounds wonderfully great.
I’m a certified Stage Manager but I'm not pursuing it right now. I‘m also an actress but studying on my own. I'm not in college at this moment but I am actively doing different courses at acting schools such as "acting for camera" or "voice acting".
I am currently working as a manager at a japanese restaurant in San Telmo, an historical neighborhood of Buenos Aires. I been working there since September 2018. I also worked in some plays on Corrientes avenue (one of the epicenters of theater in the city) and I'm collaborating on the creation of a podcast of a friend.
In my free time I like to be outside and go out with friends. I’m the type of person that goes everywhere with a journal on hand to write everything that comes to mind. I love to write and I spend much of my time on it, especially poetry, and I'm currently finishing a script for a future proyect with my sister.
I used to take care of my little twin cousins when they were 4/5 years old. As my parents worked a lot, I almost always helped to take care of my little sister, i used to cook for her, help her with her homework, listen to her about her issues, and do our favorite activity, play time!.
Nowaday every two weeks I help one of my cousins with her stepson! He’s name is Luciano and he is 6 years old. Our sundays are full of fun, games and laughter! I love kids, I'm very patient, kind and organized.
My mother tongue is Spanish but I have a great level on english. My school years were in a bilingue educational system but they only taught us basic stuff and, being honest, I learned more on my own thanks to my curiosity and interest.
I would be happy to have the opportunity to speak with you to learn more about your family; your interests and to know more about what you expect from the au pair arrangement and to answer whatever questions you may have about me!
Thank you very much for your interest in my application!
I look forward to hearing from you.
