Dear host family, my name Selva I am 22 years old and I'm from the north of Spain. I have two older sisters, one of them is already married and works as a nurse. My other sister is a restaurant waitress. Both live in my hometown. My father is retired, and my mother is a painter and teacher of handicrafts and painting. I was born in Galicia and soon after my family and I moved to my current city Ponferrada in the province of Leon, it was where my family had always lived and also there were my grandparents and my uncles. Then when I was 18 I moved to another city in Spain to study psychology at the university, I am currently in my final year. In the future I would like to open my own clinic psychology. Before that I should make master to specialize in it. Since I wanted very small and had a vocation to be a psychologist because I like to help people, listen to them, put myself in the other, and also because I am fascinated by power of the brain. In my free time I like to play sports, such a gymnastics, basketball, etc. I started doing gymnastics when I was 6 years old and since then I have always gone to competitions until I was 17 years old and had to go to study abroad and left. In addition, I did a course of gymnastics coach and spent three years teaching gym class little girls, aged from 3 years to 15. I was also working on a recreational room where many children were, celebrating birthday, we were doing games, karaoke, etc. During 9 months. I love nature and animals, have had several animals the latest was a cat I liked spending time with it, I like reading, also hang out with my friends, watching movies and series, play games, go take Coke, but what I like is traveling, change of air, see the world, and people, different lifestyles ... I started learning English at school. I had Spanish classes throughout the school and is a very nice and useful language. Our teacher taught us the language, culture, traditions and daily life. Furthermore, I learned French for a few years in high school. For me there are many reasons why I want to be an au pair: babysit, mature, grow as a person, living with a family in a new and unknown country, learning something about the culture, meet new friends and to improve my knowledge language and specially to learn. It is a big dream for me for several years, living in USA and will be a great experience to share my life with his family. In addition to my work mentioned I would say that I also made experiences with children. I've been volunteering in an association of children with Asperger for six months, in which we conducted games, workshops socialization, self-esteem, education, etc. Aged between 8 and 18 years. I was also a volunteer at the Red Cross for three months, caring for children with family problems, helping with homework, playing with them, ages 3 to 9. I have three younger cousins me, and sometimes I have helped care for them, play with them and entertain, but also everyday things like showering, brushing teeth, food preparation etc. I spend a lot fun time with kids when I take care of them and I love doing it and playing with them serve them, although sometimes it can be tiring and stressful, although I have a lot of patience and get along great stress, I am very active and positive. During this time, I have learned to work with young children. I hope that now I know better and have a good impression of me. I hope to hear from and I would love to be your Au pair. Greetings.
