Dear Cathy,

Thank you for your letter!

I always enjoy writing letters, and it is very exciting to meet people from all over the world.

First, a little bit about myself. I'm nineteen years old and I go to secondary school. I have one sister, who is married. She has two children. her first child was born Dec. 14, 1997. He is a big boy, his name is Alessandro. The other child is also a boy; he is two years old and his name is Fabiano. My sister's husband is Italian, so the names are Italian. I love children, so I'm going to be a teacher. But I have to finish school first.

My father is the Sales Manager for a company called Quanta Dee. My mother also works there. They make wet-suits and bicycles.
