Letter to Family
My name is Emily, and I am a student of Literature and Music at Scripps College in
Claremont, California. I have been studying in Copenhagen as a student this past semester,
and am very excited to work with a family this summer as an au pair. I have worked as a
babysitter and violin teacher in the past, and have lots of experience working with kids.
I have played violin for 17 years, so I have a very strong interest in music and the arts,
as well as books, movies, and above all, travel. I'm a very active, lively person who
loves to be outside and on the go. I have a good sense of humor and work ethic balanced
with an easy-going personality.
I would like to work as an au pair because, of course, I adore working with children. I'm
also very interested in experiencing the summer in Denmark after studying in Copenhagen
over the spring semester, so putting the two together seemed like a natural choice. I love
to cook and clean, enjoy being active, and would like to get to know a Danish family in
