Letter to Family
Hello! My name is Önder TANER. I am a Turkish boy of 23. I was born in Istanbul, the
biggest city of Turkey, in 1988 and am still living here in Istanbul with my parents. My
father is a retired workers. He is 57 years old. My mother also was a housewife. She is 55
years old. I have one brother and one sister. They are couffeur. We are a very close
family. I always feel them so close to me. I think it is a great feeling, one's knowing
that her family always support her. My family supported me about my decision to go to the
UK as an au pair.
I have graduated from the Tourism Management Faculty of Zonguldak Karaelmas Universty. I
have worked for a Turkish hotel in Istanbul (Hilton).
I enjoy being with the children and spend time with them. I try to help their daily
activities, I try to provide spending their time beneficially. I am interested in reading
and being informed as possible as I can about child development.
As I have mentioned I have had quite a few experience with children. My general duties
have involved preparing food for them, to feed them, bathing, taking them to park, to
swim, to play with them, baby sitting, washing and ironing their clothes, teaching the
basic things according to their ages and dealing with any other unexpected needs.
I would like to assure you that I will be a responsible au-pair and I really look forward
to meeting you very soon.
Kind Regards and Very Best Wishes
