Dear Host Family, My name is Catalina Franco Espitia, I am 28 and I work in social communications with an emphasis on journalism and teaching. My family includes my father, who is a woodworker and electrician, who also designs and builds houses. My mother is 54 and she works as a secretary in a mobile telecommunications company here in Colombia. My brother is 35 and is the technical director for several football teams: Dinhos, the women’s team for Saint Thomas University as well as for the Italian high school of Bogota. He is passionate about sports, especially soccer at the local and international level. We are a small but very intimate family and we always help each other in any situation. Finally, we have a wonderful German Sheppard named Athena (Atenea in Spanish) who is adored by all. I want to be an au pair because it combines all things I love to do: teach, care for others, learn new cultures, learn and help. I am a friendly and happy person who quickly adapts to difficult situations and knows how to always look for a better solution. I hope to meet a family with whom I can have excellent communication and mutual trust, so that my stay would be a gratifying experience to both myself and for the family who would host me in Holland. I would love to learn the Dutch language and culture, and practice my English, and would also love to teach them about my own country.
