Welcome to the cluster, Seba!

It is very exciting to have another male au pair in our cluster! Seba is 22 years old, he is from Argentina. It is my pleasure to share some information with you about him. 

“I wanted to be an au pair, because I love spending time with kids and traveling. As I am studying to be an English teacher I had always been close to kids and I always loved spending time with them. I never thought there would be an exchange program that would allow me to do this. I am happy for the chanse to be an au pair!20050172_1746686528680212_1862162998_o

I don’t really have a hobbie. I like doing different stuff, for example going for a run, going to the gym are some of them. I enjoy watching movies and listening to music. I also like going out with friends and have a nice meal together.

My wish would be to stop hunger from all over the World.
I would love to visit New York City. It has always been my dream walking in Central Park and getting a hot dog in the street!
On Saturdays I like going out with friends to different places (theater, camp, traveling near my home area, etc) or sometimes we have a meal with my family. 20106879_1746672335348298_1482321955_o
The best complement I had ever received was:
“Never let people get you down. Don’t let them say you can’t do anything. You are an amazing guy and you can do what ever you want”

I am creative. Since I was a kid I have always loved creating things like a small city on the table with boxes and books and play with my little sister. We also filmed videos acting as if we were in a movie. I edited them and played them on my TV screen. I also enjoy teaching. I like showing people my skills. But I also love learning new things”
Thank you, Sebastian for your answers! I hope, that you will be able to visit New York and a lot of other places! ♥

She wanted to be an au pair, because she loves children, wanted to improve her English and meet lots of people from other cultures.
She loves cooking and learning gastronomy. She would like to take some culinary course in the USA.16763668_366191970446282_1809872770_o

She lives near the beach ( Florianópolis Island in Brazil), so she loves going to the beach.She, also likes to ride a bike,  watch films and read books.

She considers herself as a funny person full of life and energy. Her friends say, that she is a good chef and great friend.

Welcome in our cluster, Anita

Anita Pinzón is from Bogotá, Colombia. She is teacher and our next au pair! Let’s read more about this polite girl, who sent me a nicely built introduction about herself ( I have never seen such a thing like this, I was surprised!)15942257_10154232872853806_215480425_n

She wants to be an Au pair, because she loves children; she likes to spend her time with them. Also, she considers, that it will be an excellent opportunity to learn in a new culture, to communicate with different people and share things about her culture,too.

She likes listening to music, reading,  watching TV, walking in parks, going to the cinema, eating healthy food and travelling.

She is responsible, active, loyal, mature, honest, educated, friendly, and active among other

If she had one wish, she would learn different languages as much as possible.

She would like to visit Statue of Liberty, because she thinks, that it is one of the most important wonder of the world.

She would like to interact with American people, share her experiences with friends, go to concerts or shows and enjoy each moment in which she will be in this beautiful country.

Woow, that was more than satisfying, I guess! Enjoy your year here, Anita! ♥

 

Cherry, one of our awesome South-African Au Pairs.

Cherry is in our cluster since January and she takes care of a little baby-boy in center city, Philadelphia. She’s a happy and funny person, always there for others and it makes so much fun to do something  with her.

I was born in Newcastle, KwaZulu Natal in South Africa. I’m very friendly and very optimistic. I’m a huge water and animal lover. I worked in Sunnybank pre-school last year as an assistant Teacher and toured Australia with my family in June/July 2013. I love learning about new languages and cultures. I’d like to study drama, music and Psychology/Criminology.

I want to be an au pair, because I’m young, I love children and the program is great for work and travel in another country and discover more about yourself.

I love all the arts (music, dance and drama), reading, swimming, drawing, sports, and trying new things and I’m interested in Psychology.

Smiley, thoughtful…. fish-in-water – that’s how she describes herself.

Cherry would like to see Boston, NYC (again), Miami,Washington D.C., Montreal and Canada in general, Seattle, Chicago, Las Vegas, New Orleans, LA and California in general – basically she’d like to visit as much places as possible.

In my free time I like to travel, do sports (especially swimming), spend time with my friends, watch series or to read a book. 

As an aupair, I expect to have a wonderful experience, full of traveling and new adventures and to have a great relationship with my host family and their beautiful son.

Yoselin, our transition Au Pair from El Salvador

Now my Au Pair mission goes on with a new interview.
Around six weeks ago a new Au Pair joined our cluster. Her name is Yoselin and she’s a transition Au Pair, who moved from the New Jersey cluster. Like all new Au Pairs in our cluster, she answered me some questions about herself and her life as an Au Pair in the States.

10169346_10201625922802092_3663850367972467314_n

I decided to be an Au Pair to have an international experience. Since that makes you grow as an individual. You can enjoy the time with the kids paricipating their activities and still explore a lot in the US.

She loves singing, reading, shopping, doing sports like swimming and going to the gym. Additionally she likes to spend time with friends.

My best experience during the last months was my move to my new host family in Pennsylvania.

Yoselin characterizes herself as patient, friendly and tolerant.

A big wish of her is getting a degree in Canada.

In my free time I like to travel. Some places, I want to go are some other states in the US, e.g. Washington and California. I’ve already been to Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey.

Things, I think I’m really good at are singing and languages.

From the time as an Au Pair here in the United States, I expect to have a lot of fun, make good memories and study. Furthermore I would like to  make new friends and to visit more unknown places – especially now in my new cluster around Philadelphia.

Yoselin, I wish you a great time at your new family and say again: Welcome to our cluster in Philadelphia! Have a great time!

 

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.

IMG_3227

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!
