Dear Family, My name is Abir. I am a 22 year old who has just started her first paid job since graduating from university (with a bachelor's degree in Management) a few months ago. Although I currently live in Ethiopia, I was born and raised in Saudi Arabia to an Ethiopian mother and a Yemeni father. My parents got divorced before my birth and they both got remarried to other people later on. My mother, along with my siblings and I, moved out of Saudi Arabia to Ethiopia when I turned 17. I'm the eldest between the 4 siblings I have a 13 year old brother and a 5 year old sister (who passed away in a car crash in 2017) from my mother's side, and a 17 year old sister and an 11 year old brother from my father's side. My mother runs a small business in her hometown and lives there with my brother. I have been unsure of many things ever since my sister died. If I should have done my Master's degree abroad when I got my full paid scholarship even though it meant that I'll be leaving mom (which I didn't) or if it's okay for me to move to the capital city for work leaving mom behand (which I did) but I'm still unsure of a lot of things. But this is the one thing that I'm sure of. So, at the moment, I would like to take some time out of life here and work to have a different life experience, and to have time to calmly reflect on my future and where I want to be in life. Spending a year or maybe even more away from where I am right now is what I need. My first language is, of course, Arabic and I am also fluent in English. I started learning English in primary school, and it was also the language of instruction in all of the schools and the university I've been to. I can also speak my mother's mother tongue which is Amharic. I speak an intermediate level of Korean after I started learning it in 2015 and have a basic grasp of Urdu, Turkish and Spanish. As far as preferences are concerned, I am looking for a live-in arrangement with a host family, that would be happy to have me stay with and work for them for at least 6 months. I would also prefer looking after children aged between 2 years to 10 years. Lastly, although I am quite flexible, I would prefer to have working hours that would allow me to attend classes. I would be happy to have the opportunity to speak with you: to answer whatever questions you may have about me or my childcare experiences; to learn more about your family; your interests and to know more about what you expect from the au pair arrangement. Thank you very much for your interest in my application! I look forward to hearing from you. Yours Sincerely, Abir.
