This summer, we asked au pairs across the country to share their favorite memories of their time in the U.S. We received so many memorable entries - from road trips with other au pairs, to exploring nearby cities, to just enjoying the sunshine with their host families, every summer adventure embraced the spirit of cultural exchange. Thank you so much for the entries! We can't wait to see what's in store for next year.

"A friend from home came to visit me this summer, so we made a road trip all the way to Horseshoe Bend, Arizona. We had so much fun and it was an amazing experience! I'm truly thankful for her visit, as life was meant for good friends and good adventures."
Second Place Winner: Brazilian au pair Fernanda and her host family in Alaska
"Visiting Alaska is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Every view looks like a postcard and it's truly magical."
Third Place Winner: Au pair Milena from Brazil takes a big leap over Chicago
"One day before leaving Chicago, I checked skydiving off my bucket list. It was my way of saying goodbye to this amazing city before moving on to my next adventure in Texas."
