    That’s an amazing experience that Irina shows in her video. She is having a really great year in the USA, she is taking care not only of the hostkids but she is also travelling a lot around US and Canada, studying different subjects at the colleges, learning many things about new country and different cultures from her international friends. I can guess her host family loves her because she does a lot of things with the kids and they learn a lot not only at this moment while she stays with them but also for their future.
    wish Irina a good luck and be a winner

    Awesome!!!!! That such a great program. I love Irina’s video, such a impressive ever that she traveled to many places in United State and Canada also studied in the university, made friends from around the world. That such a great experience to share culture together. Her host family so lucky to have her, she so sweet with the kids and taught the kids many things. The kids so happy to be around her.
    I wish she will be the winner.

    Irina’s video does a wonderful job capturing the cultural exchange that Au Pairs and their Host Families experience. While Irina gets to immerse herself in American Culture, her host family has the opportunity to learn so much about their own heritage and culture.

    It really is amazing how much she has done in the past year! And her video is fantastic. She gets my vote!

    Video is is amazing! This video shows a a “small” portion of her “many” talents she has. There’s nothing Irina can’t do or willing to try! Irina is an incredible cook, she makes everything look so beautiful.

    Irina loves, to hike, bike, swim, paint, sew, ice skate, dance, read, photography, shopping, traveling. Irina has a lot to offer to the not only to children but to the world, she is a very, very smart young lady. One of greatest gifts in my life was being able to meet Irina and share experiences with her. I love her like a daughter and a best friend. I have been able to watch her blossom over the past year into an amazing multi talented women that has no fears, she is always up for an adventure and to take a picture. Irina has fallen in love with America and its culture but she is still a Russian girl at heart, she takes great pride in sharing with others the love of her country and the admiration and respect she has for her mother. I couldn’t be more proud of Irina signing up for the Aupair program its been a lovely blessing for her but Irina has been ultimately and AMAZING blessing to everyone she meets, she has a way of touching lives that priceless.
    My vote is 100% for Irina!

    I have known Laura for some time ago, and I know that her talent for music and the love that she transmits for her kids are part of the secrets for she being a really awesome Au Pair. Music is the only language that everyone can understand, and her talent is gonna make her achieve really high goals!. She traveled to the United States looking to achieve her dreams, and with her hard work I know that she can make it!. Her kids love her, she is like a mother, a sister and a best friend for them! My vote is 100% for her!

    in the time i’ve known irina.. i have been impressed at the beautiful way she carries herself- w/confidence, intelligence, warmth, humor & a marvelous sense of curiosity & interest in the world around her! i’ve seen her video, made w/her host ‘family’ ..and, can only say that any family would be delighted & greatful to have irina become a part of their household- and, give to their children the love, care, guidance & devotion she brings to these three little boys.
    i think it would be wonderful if irina was chosen to be the IAPA’s au pair of the year for 2011. she is not only an gift to her current family.. but, to all whom she has befriended. she’s a wonderful role model for all young women & a shining example of everything this program can achieve..

    I’ve known Irina for a long time, she is really nice and wonderful person. I am always seeing her being around the children, she really enjoys time spending with them. More than 1,5 year ago she left her country and desided to be an au pair in the USA. I think she did a great choice participaiting in that program, i can tell she learned lots of things from her american environment, changed herself being in different culture and met great people from around the world, every week she is posting new pictures showing us that she is a big traveler, she is always on her way to discover America for herself, she started to learn the 5th foreign language staying in the US, i am really proud of her. she is very talented woman.
    Her host family loves her and they enjoy their time together. The boys love her as their best friend and even more sister!! I think they would keep in touch for the whole their life and the kids will always thank Irina for being so kind and useful for them. She became a real member of their family.
    My vote is for Irina!
    Go girl!

    Hi, I have known Laura since we were little girls and went to elementary school together. We grew up together and when my family moved to the U.S we stayed in touch. When I heard she was coming to the United States to be an Au Pair I was thrilled, and thought whatever family she ended up with would be lucky to have her. Laura has always been a responsible girl. When we were younger when we were put together to do a project and she stepped up and took the reigns as to where the project should head. I don’t doubt that she is like that with her host family. She puts her all into every thing she sets her mind to. Although being an Au Pair is her job she loves those kids and cares a lot about her host family. Laura should be the Au Pair of the year because she deserves it. She has committed herself to be the best Au Pair her host family could have ever asked for. She puts 100% into her work meanwhile creating lasting relationships with her host family. Laura is responsible, dedicated and loving and you couldn’t ask for a girl better than her to represent GoAuPair

    Laura Merchan, before she went to this au pair program, had spent literally years taking care of her sisters with a dedication and love that I’ve never seen.

    I can speak about her qualities as her friend, co-worker, and colleague on arts: she is a person full of hope, kindness, passion and determination. And she can share her amazing feelings with, not only members of their family or community, but also with all the people that life brings to her on travels, work and scenarios. This nomination is a good proof that, all the energy that she puts to achieve hear goals, is transmitted to the people around her.

    Laura is a generous person that would be always looking to give life the best of herself.

Besides, I’m sure she is going to get anything she wants because she is decided, strong and inteligent.

    Laura Lorena is the best au pair because it is a mature woman who knows how to differentiate between what is right and wrong, duty and responsible for their actions. Laura is able to give everything without getting anything, to love with all their heart without expecting anything in return. When you commit and sets goals and has been to be part of the au pair has completed putting in front of his own happiness, and everything has been done with much love, devotion and patience.
    Lorenita are the best au pair GOD BLESS YOU.

    I have no doubt Laura is the best aupair. She is an exceptional woman, she is kind, friendly and extremely talented! She is dedicated in her work. Her love for William and Helena makes her a remarkable girl. I have seen the way Laura teaches them and protects them, she takes good care of them. Laura is more than a babysitter for them, they see her as a big sister. They love her, respect her and appreciate the work she does for them.
    I am very glad to say Laura is my best friend. she’s a smart girl, Laura is always ready to help the person who needs it,. She gives all of her without asking anything in return. I admire her for that, despite her age she is a very mature girl, she is a hardworking woman, she is honest and she loves her host family in the same way they love her.

    Laura is my best friend, she is my sister, she is my family, she is my support, she is my guardian angel. She has shown me her love in many ways that I don’t know how to say thank you.

    Laura has become an essential part of my life, I spent with her best moments, with her many of us have laughed, cried, learned and sung. I am very proud of everything she has accomplished.
    I can only say Laura deserves to be the best au pair, she is a wonderful woman and I would vote for her now and other thousands of times! I love her with all my heart.

    my friend you don’t need luck, you are lucky already!

They travel abroad by themselves to completely different country with it’s different culture, language, religion, lifestyle, people, food, laws… and adjust to a new environment, it’s not easy for everybody at all but they make it work.

    I am not surprised that Irina is nominated for The IAPA AU PAIR of the year Award. She is the best AU Pair because of her kindness, open heart, strong personality, immovability in reaching her goals, being always ready to help other people. She is a really great example of the best au pair!
    You deserve to be proud of your achievement. May your future efforts be equally successful and rewarding.

They travel abroad by themselves to completely different country with it’s different culture, language, religion, lifestyle, people, food, laws… and adjust to a new environment, it’s not easy for everybody at all but they make it work.

    Hi, I have known Laura Merchan since we were little girls and went to elementary school together. We grew up together and when my family moved to the U.S we stayed in touch. When I heard she was coming to the United States to be an Au Pair I was thrilled, and thought whatever family she ended up with would be lucky to have her. Laura has always been a responsible girl. When we were younger when we were put together to do a project and she stepped up and took the reigns as to where the project should head. I don’t doubt that she is like that with her host family. She puts her all into every thing she sets her mind to. Although being an Au Pair is her job she loves those kids and cares a lot about her host family. Laura should be the Au Pair of the year because she deserves it. She has committed herself to be the best Au Pair her host family could have ever asked for. She puts 100% into her work meanwhile creating lasting relationships with her host family. Laura is responsible, dedicated and loving and you couldn’t ask for a girl better than her to represent GoAuPair

    Laura Lorena is the best au pair because it is a mature woman who knows how to differentiate between what is right and wrong, duty and responsible for their actions. Laura is able to give everything without getting anything, to love with all their heart without expecting anything in return. When you commit and sets goals and has been to be part of the au pair has completed putting in front of his own happiness, and everything has been done with much love, devotion and patience.
    Lorenita are the best au pair GOD BLESS YOU.
