Being an au pair has made me a mature woman, be patient, and a better listener. The last 2 years weren't easy, but made me grow, know to select the true ones, and always I kept focused on my goals. When it comes to my studies, when I arrived I studied English, then I got my GED, did short courses to be prepared, and now I'm working on my PMP [Project Management Professional] certification. I have visited places in the USA, but I used my time to save money and study. Some places that I visited were incredible and my actual host family provided fun experiences when we traveled together!
