I became an au pair abroad because I love cultural exchanges and I wanted to experience it while becoming a member of a local family. I enjoy languages 🗣️, traveling ✈️ and engaging with other cultures. Being an au pair gives me that possibility daily. I learn a lot from the three children I look after and I’ve built a connection with them that I will carry in my heart forever. ❤️
I’ve made some amazing friends here and have unforgettable memories with them. I’ve also had many opportunities to travel✈️ Being an au pair abroad has been such an amazing experience, and it’s changed my life living with the most amazing host parents and kids. 👨👩👧 Leaving my home country to come here was difficult, having to say goodbye to everything I knew and loved. But when it comes time to leave here, it will be even more difficult. But I’ll be walking away with amazing memories that will last a lifetime, and that’s something I’ll be forever grateful for! ❤️
Being an au pair allowed me to combine my love of children with my desire to travel the world and experience an authentic cultural exchange. I was able to spend my days helping my host kids to develop and grow while also improving their language skills in Mandarin. It was so special being able to see how far their progressed during my time as an au pair. It was truly an experience I will never forget. Thank you Nina.care for all of your support throughout my journey!
My host kids and I bonded quite quickly and I immediately felt like their older sister. I also made the most incredible friends during my stay from all over the world and am still in touch with them and my host family. The relationships you form with others during your au pair journey are some of the closest connections I’ve felt with others, and I am grateful I got to know each of them. I loved the experience and if you want to grow as a person, this is the perfect opportunity!
When I was an au pair, my host family became like my second family. We loved having family dinners together, doing weekend trips, and playing games in the evenings. I felt supported throughout my whole journey and was confident that I had an agency I could trust and rely on if I ever needed anything. It is a big step moving to a new country, but it felt less scary with the support of Nina.care and my lovely host family!
