Thank you for giving me the opportunity of living and staying in China for such a long time. I've been living in Australia for the last whole year.I enjoyed this unique country but I feel I'm ready to change, ready to face another cultural challenge; therefore I joined My Year in China program as soon as I had the chance to do it.
I am looking forward to working with you and to staying in your home. I'm very excited to helping your students to learn everything I know and to bringing a little bit of my culture into you're home. I am also extremely excited to be included in a new family and learn their culture.
I am looking for an experience. I want to visit new places, learn and have stories to tell back home. I am 21 years old and have had approximately 3 years experience working with children between the age of 10 and 19 in disability services and in detention centres and boot camps.
My Chinese name is 晓岚。I come from Poland.I was a camp counselor 3 times for about 10 days. I was taking care for children aged 6-15. The kids were older and independant so my job was just to keep an eye on them on trips, in the hotel, also play with them and organize their free time.
I am an Ukraine girl I have been taking care of my younger cousins (4 and 6 year old) for a few hours from time to time. Many my family friends also have kids of different age, so I often play with them on various holidays and celebrations or when I visit them . Besides, I have a younger brother, even there is only 1,5-year age difference, I've been always looking after him, especially when he was little.
I am Canadian, but I am born in China. I wish I could go to China, During several years, I have been a babysitter, I kept the children in my neighborhood. This summer, I was an animator in a summer camp with a group of children between 4 and 5 years old. And recently, I began to help two students in a primary school every Friday in their homework
I am an American college student from Fresno. I have had an interest in Chinese culture for a long time, and have been studying Mandarin for two semesters at my college. I even spent 3 weeks this summer studying in Shanghai, at USST (上海理工大学）. I would love to become part of your family, and help each other learn more about our respective cultures.

I am 23 years old currently attending Community College where I will receive my Associate’s Degree in 2 months! I am also working towards my Bachelor’s Degree at the University of Maryland. Visiting China has always been a lifelong dream and I think it would be just as amazing to have the chance to positively impact a little child’s life.
