There are many outstanding Au Pairs from Go Au Pair agency in Philadelphia, Bucks County and NJ. Four Au Pairs from China out of five Chinese Au Pairs from our cluster were awarded this year. Please read about the Au Pairs Ophelia, Adriana, Hui and Diana bellow – 2014 Au Pair in Excellence Nominees.
Today I would like to post about the Au Pair from China, Diana Zhu, who was nominated by her Host Family for the IAPA Au Pair of the Year Award in 2014.
Diana Zhu is a second year Au Pair with Go Au Pair. Diana lives in NJ with a wonderful host family with two adorable boys. Diana has really become part of the family. Diana’s family always told me that they truly love having Diana around. Diana often joined her host family for pizza night, Sunday spaghetti, headed down to the shore on weekends, and attended many her extended host family’s events. Also, Diana has taken many classes at Raritan Valley Community College and improved her English.
She is always first to volunteer or help. She has a beautiful smile and a loving personality. Diana’s photo got second prize in an Au Pair photo contest this year.
Diana is cheerful, calm, and good with kids.”Her calming personality makes any situation easy to handle, but what is more comforting is we know Diana feels at home with us.”, said Diana’s host mom.
Reading Diana’s host family nomination essay made me tear up. “There is not a day that goes by that we are not thankful for Diana. She has endured a lot with our family. We have helped her navigate home late in the evening from school, spent time with her on homework, comforted her during Duke’s destruction, and helped her discipline the boys. And she has kindly spoken about Chinese culture, home and her life and family across the globe. It seems strange that we would call Diana anything other than family.
She has volunteered at the Philadelphia marathon, celebrated a very special twenty-third birthday, shared Christmas and a happy New Year. We look forward to future milestones like celebrating the Chinese New Year and a family vacation to Aruba. Although Diana is our first Au Pair, I can confidently say she is the best. She has a special soul and a light inside her that shines bright. This soft-spoken Au Pair from China that will forever be a part of the Migliaro Family has made a mark so bold that we owe her more than the words on this paper”.
Go Au Pair agency recognized six Au Pairs from our cluster out of 45 Au Pairs from Go Au Pair who went above and beyond their job as Au Pairs. Read a press release Au Pairs in Excellence Nomination- Au Pairs stand out.
Congratulations, Diana and other nominees.
