Welcome our new au pair: Alejandra

Alejandra Tapia Mosquera is from Ecuador and arriving today! I was wondering, how nice and high-hearted au pairs we will have…It is amazing! Let’s see what I was talking about: 

She likes volunteering at animal shelters, but she also likes to do other things like jogging in the morning at the gym, swimming and playing basketball, or she usually stays with her mom and go shopping.

She loves singing and dancing and going out with her friends to travel and visit new places.

She says, she is a positive, charitable and happy person.

If she had a wish, she would have a shelter and a hospital for stray animals, victims of abuse. (I love that idea! )15967145_10209649904016847_188315849_o

She would like to visit the Greek Islands.

On the weekends, she likes to go out in the morning for a walk, then cook a rich meal with her  family and after that going out to stroll a place that has not visited before.

She says, that she considers herself as a good  singer. She also could be the best person to talk to, if anybody needs help.

I am very happy that such a good person is joining to our cluster! Have a wonderful year! ♥

Our new Au Pair Jenny from Germany

It’s time for the first interview of my blog Au Pair mission: Philadelphia, PA.
Around two weeks ago one of our new Au Pairs arrived in Philadelphia: Jenny from Germany. Her buddy is Carmen from South Africa. She will help Jenny with her first steps in the US. As every new Au Pair Jenny answered some questions in an interview for us.

Hi, I’m Jenny, 24 years old and come from the black forest in southern Germany.

I want to be an Au Pair to explore another culture and to develop my personality.
In my free time I love to play soccer and hang out with my friends.

The best event during the last month was the women soccer game Germany vs. Slovakia, which I watched with a friend of mine in Mannheim. After the game two national players came to us and we talked and took pictures.

Adjectives, which describe me the best are happy and kind.

If I had one free wish it would be a life without war and illness.

Besides the US I would like to visit New Zealand, Canada and Sweden.

Two good things I can do quite good are being a good friend/listener and drawing.

I expect to learn new things about other cultures  as an Au Pair here in the States and I see it as a “life experiment”. On top of that I hope to have a great relationship with my hos family and to meet new friends.

Thanks Jenny for answering all the questions! I think it’s gonna be a great year for you. It’s your first time in the US, so enjoy the life here, I really enjoyed my time so far.

I’m looking forward to meeting you soon – in person!

Waiting for a Chinese Au Pair arrival.

This is the second part, read the first part A great match with a Chinese Au Pair.
In July 2012,  a single father with two kids, Gregory invited an Au Pair from China to join his family. The children stayed with his grandparents during the summer. Gregory was very busy preparing for a new life.  Several weeks later, by the time school started,  the new Au Pair Hui arrived to the US.

I would say that Gregory’s family and Hui are a great match.  Hui has a very caring personality and she bonded with her host children quickly. As a Local Area Representative, I noticed right away that Hui is a great addition to Gregory’s family.

Chinese Au Pair life

The Au Pair  Hui has a lovely personality and a beautiful smile.  She has many talents, and is always ready to help without asking. She likes traveling and taking many great photos.  Hui has made a lot of friends.

Hui is very intelligent, attentive and caring person.  She is also a modest person, very nice to others and puts others before her.  Hui became a big sister, a caring family member and the kids will remember her forever.

Chinese Au Pair, children.

During our meeting, the eight year old Henry came close to me and shared that Hui is a very good Au Pair. I believe him.

Stay tuned for a new entry A Chinese Au Pair Hui story.
