Featured AuPairCare Au Pair - Carina from South Africa

South African Au Pair Carina

Au Pair Carina came to the U.S. from South Africa hoping to find adventure, and she hasn’t been disappointed! Read about her amazing experience so far below:

I truly am having the time of my life! And I have AuPairCare to thank for it! Without you my American dreams would be just that, dreams!”  

 “Where to begin to explain the past 6 months of my life? WOW! What a journey it has been. 'll start with the obvious- my host family is amazing, they could not have been a better fit for me. I take care of 2 boys (6) and (9) and they stole my heart right from the beginning.  

Orientation was a lot of fun! I got to meet so many different people from all over the world and I still keep in touch with most of them. I was also one of the very lucky winners of the pre-departure project and got to see Times Square in NYC!   I was fortunate enough to travel with my host family on camping trips and on summer vacation to Sunriver Resort in Oregon, wow! What a beautiful place. We did a road trip so we got to stop at different places and see all sorts of things, we went lavender picking, to a chocolate factory and even into a volcano’s lava tube. On our way back we also got to spend a night at Crater Lake, the deepest lake in the United States! It was amazingly beautiful!  

Other than that I got to travel to Los Angeles, Seattle and Las Vegas. All of which Las Vegas was obviously the best! I even got to meet a basketball player from my favourite team, the Golden State Warriors at the airport!  I’m starting college classes on Tuesday and can’t wait to start studying again!   I just wanted to thank my overseas office for always being there when I had all my silly questions and helping me with the whole process, from filling in papers to getting my visa, I will never be able to thank you enough for this amazing once in a lifetime opportunity.  

I truly am having the time of my life! And I have AuPairCare to thank for it! Without you my American dreams would be just that, dreams!”
