Thank you, Maria, for introducing our new Au Pair from Bucks County Nancy.

Hello, Au Pair Friends! The blog post from today is to introduce you to Ruonan Zheng from China! Her American name is Nancy, she lives in Newtown, Bucks County and she is 20 years old.

Nancy attended to her first meeting which was at Penn Museum the last month, “I was so glad to meet the friends there. I was very enjoying it and so excited. I visited the museum and watched some shows for lion dance and Kungfu etc. What’s more – I found some new friends and took pictures with them right there. I love the meeting very much. So, thanks, everyone” Nancy said about the meeting.Nancy Au Pair from China

We asked some questions to Nancy to have the opportunity of knowing more about her.

Why did you decide to become an Au pair? -Firstly. I really like children. I like to be with children. And I can be in  America, that’s a good thing. The Au Pair program can exercise me so many things. So I wanted to be an Au Pair to complete my dream.

Do you have hobbies? I like playing the piano, reading books, swimming, cooking and so on.

What was the best event/happening during last month? -There was a thing that I think it’s the best event that about the kids can clearly call my name last month.

What three adjectives best describe you? -I think the three adj. is that caring, patient, gentle to best describe me.

What place would you like to visit? -I’d like to visit the ocean.

What is your favorite way to spend a Saturday-My favorite way to spend my Saturday is go stay with my friends to play or do something together.

Thank you so much for answering the questions, Nancy! We all are looking forward to spending a great time with you! Have an excellent experience!

Now I will tell you a little more about  my lindo maravilhosa (marvelous) Brazil.

We are also known for our most important party, one that bring people together in the states of Bahia (Northeast), Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo (Southeast): Carnival.

People get together in the streets or in arenas like Sapucaí (in Rio) and Sambódromo (in Sao Paulo) and watch the parade of floats and dancers present sambas about different themes related to our culture.

Every state and city offer something special, but Brazil’s most important ones are:

Sao Paulo: The Picture shows Paulista Ave.

Rio de Janeiro: Cristo Redentor.

Brazil’s music is also known worldwide. From Bossa Nova and Tropicalia to Axé and Rock.

From artists like Gilberto Gil

and Tom Jobin to Cazuza and  Ivete Sangalo.

Our most famous Music Festival has traveled around the world and came back to Brazil in 2011.

We’re also big on fashion. With fashion designers like: Alexandre Herchcovitch: (Stop drooling, ladies!)

And brands like:  Rosa Chá (Yep, that’s Naomi Campbell)

And Colcci:

And, well…Some of us are present in America’s runways and imagination:
