Hannya says, ” I consider myself a patient, smiling and outgoing person.  I like to spend my free time with friends or go to the cinema.  When I was in Torreon, one of my favorites hobbies was playing soccer or going to soccer matches.
Last month I was traveling with friends and family through México and we visited a lot of places! I learn fast and If there something that I don’t understand I like to research about that thing.”
Hannya’s dream is ” to visit all possible places.” Good luck with that  – there are many places to visit during your Au Pair year!
We are all looking forward to meeting you, Hannya! Welcome, again!

Farewell to our dear friend Anita!

It is the middle of the summer and sadly but at the same time happily we have to say good bye to Anita Pinzon! She came at the end of January 2017 and after all this time she is leaving with a big smile and good memories with her family back in Colombia! Lets see what she said in our short but interesting interview!

20170903_163959

What places did you visit and which one you like the most? Well, I had the opportunity to visit some states around the country like Michigan, California and Miami and some others but honestly I don’t have a favorite cause in most of them I had fun!

What was your favorite way to spend your time in the USA? Since I didn’t work on weekends most of the time I traveled with my friends in order to have fun and try new things!

Whats your favorite thing of being a au pair? I can say that I had the chance to live and share memories with an amazing host family, I was able to improve my English skills and of course enjoy my time with my host kids.

 

How do you like the experience  being a part of an American Family? I really like this experience cause I was involved in the culture by speaking their language, trying their food and of course their life style in a real environment.

 

Finally, Anita said that she wishes us all the best in our lives (including the cluster, LAR and Go Au Pair), and that she will keep us in her hearth forever!

Thank you so much for your words Anita, we wish you the best! We are sure that your family in your country can not wait to see you! We hope you had a great time with us and keep it up my friend!
