"Being an au pair changed my life, and my way to see the world changed completely!"

Being an au pair changed my life, and my way to see the world changed completely! In my country you must have good English skills and a college degree in order to get a good job. I'm currently working in an English school where I teach teenagers and adults English as a second language in the city where I live and going to college and I love it! Thanks to my experience abroad I got the job!

I was totally bitten by the travel bug, my ambitions are small I just want to travel around the world now! Such a small dream, right? I just know that thanks to the program I got to meet an awesome family that welcomed me like part of the family and I met awesome people who I still keep in touch from Skype. I could see and learn so much, and now that I'm back, sometimes I feel like I left my home in USA and I'm living abroad here, is kind of funny.

I say to every single person I know to be an au pair. Not saying is easy but it's an amazing experience and that no one can take from me.
