Ophelia’s Diary

Hi. I am Ophelia, an Au Pair from China! I have been in the States for two months already. I am very excited about my new life here, so I would like to share it with you via my diary. But, first you may want to know what kind of girl I am. Let me tell you something about myself first!

Au Pair Ophelia

I am 21 years old, and I just graduated from college this July. After that, I came here to Philadelphia to be an au pair with Go Au Pair agency. I love children, DIY and traveling so much!

In China, I was a volunteer at the school for the deaf. From there I learned that every child is a unique angel. They each have the right to feel the happiness of life. So, I am always a “sunshine girl”  with children.

 I also like using my hands to do creative things such as sewing, baking and cooking. I do this for my family and friends, which makes them feel happy. When I see the smiles on their faces, my heart always feels warm. I enjoy it a lot.Au Paiirs goaupair

 I already met a lot of new friends Au Pairs in Philadelphia. My friends are always kidding to me, “Ophelia, you will be a good housewife in the future. Why don’t you be my children’s godmother first?” And now I really don’t know how many children I am godmother to anymore!

I love traveling, visiting new places, and seeing new people so much. Learning a new culture is always a lot of fun. I used to live near the beach and I am a certificated tour guide in China, so if you’re interested in Chinese culture, I would love to show you around China one day!
