AuPairCare, the leading au pair agency that provides quality live-in childcare services to American families, is proud to announce that German au pair Lena Halberstadt has been crowned as Au Pair of the Year by the International Au Pair Association (IAPA).
Lena, 19, resides just outside of Detroit, MI with her host family, the Rasmussens, where she cares for their 5 children.
IAPA's Au Pair of the Year contest has been held annually for the past 11 years. 2015 saw a record number of entries from au pair host families all over the world. The essays emphasized the principle at the core of the au pair program: cultural exchange. Three global finalists were chosen and Lena was announced as the winner at the IAPA Annual Conference in Portugal this month.
