My Au Pair experience in 2013.

Ophelia’s Diary.

 2013 year was a great and harvest year for me. I am so thankful that I can be an Au Pair. I love being an Au Pair and would like to share my Au Pair experience with you.

Au Pair US

In January, 2013 I finished all the Au Pair application documents. The next step was matching with family. During this time, I did an internship job at Chinese Au Pair center and tutored American kids mandarin. This experience helped speed up my matching process. On March 3, I got an offer from the family I like. I accepted it happily.

On July 8, I arrived New York! This was the first flight in my life. A 20 hours long international flight. I had a great time with Au Pair Sis and a lot Au Pairs during New York Workshop.

If you step into our living room, a keepsake from Go Au Pair to my host family will show up in front of you. My host mom is so thoughtful, she hanged the gift from Go Au Pair agency on the wall of our living room. They can see the picture of their child Theo and me every day.

As Christmas is coming soon, our church organized a “Gifts for children in need” program. I invited my host to attend this program.

They helped collect a lot of gifts for the poor children. I am so grateful for this.

I still remember the first week I was here, my host dad helped me find the information about the Chinese church in Philadelphia. Thanks to my host dad’s help, I made a lot of friends in the church.

Living in such a loving family, I am sure Theo will grow up very happy.
