Dear Host Family. My name is Treshana Shanice Mattis and I am an 18 year old young lady. I am a graduate of the Jose Marti Technical High School. I spent 5 years at the high school level and 1 year at their 6th form program. The motto at Jose Marti is, â€œTrabajando y estudiano para ser el hombre totalâ€?, which means in English, working and studying to be the total man. I have used this motto and God as my guide in life. As a student at this institution, I have learnt to put out the best in whatever I am doing, no matter how small the task is. I recently became aware of the Au Pair program and started the application process. I would sincerely love to be your Au Pair. You may ask yourself the question, why choose me, Treshana Mattis? What is so special and different about this individual? Well, being a child/young lady, I can place myself in the shoe of your child/children. I understand what it is to be a child. Their needs and the need to be patient, kind, understanding, loving and firm. Children are a gift from God, and as adults/young
lady, it is our God given responsibility to nurture them in a loving and well balance environment. If I am chosen to be that special Au Pair, you will not regret that decision. My love for children and the experiences I have gained by interacting with children in the past will definitely assist me in being the Au Pair that your family, especially your children will love. I will sing, dance, play, read stories and remind your child every day that he/she is special and can do anything, once they try their very best. It is also important for them to feel love and accepted. Last but not least, I enter this program with an open mind, ready to experience new adventures. Ready to learn about your family and also to assist you in the nurturing of our beloved child/children in becoming a well balance individual.
