Letter to my Host Family

I’m a sunny person who likes to talk a lot and I'm always ready to meet new people. At first, I may appear quiet and shy, but when you know me better, I am completely different. I enjoy cooking. I’m really good at cooking pasta and baking . At home I often take care of meals. My grandmother taught me everything I know now because she always does everything by hand, pasta, sauces and desserts. I like animals, in fact I would like a dog, but my parents don't want to because pets are a commitment, and most of the time we’re not at home. I get along very well with kids, and I'm good at entertaining them. One of my biggest passions is fashion. I love clothing and try new styles, so after high school, I would like to study design and fashion. I thank you already for the opportunity you are offering me and I’m looking forward to knowing you.

Thank you very much for considering me as your daughter! I describe myself as open-minded, empathetic, optimistic and spontaneous. I am very tolerant, reliable and try my best to help others.

I am trying to also learn American sign language because it's very different and interesting. I have many subject interests, English and Spanish because I like languages, History, Geography and social science are also favorites of mine. I am a member of an athletics club in my town. I train twice a week in many sports. In America I want to try cheerleading, tennis or volleyball. In my free time I like to go to the park, shopping and cook or bake something, watch a movie or just relax and talk. I am somewhat afraid of animals because I once was bitten by a dog. I am a vegetarian for a few months now, I prefer not to eat meat but I would have no problem to eat meat in your family. I am excited to learn a new culture and traditions and grow as a person!
