I don't only see this program as a form of personal growth since I'll be away from my family but also as a great opportunity since children for me are very important and I love being surrounded by them because they make me feel happy and teach me to see the world in a different way. Being an au pair I'll have many new experiences and being part of a new family excites me a lot. Learning and speaking a new language has always been my dream and as an Au pair I'll be able to fulfill it by doing many other things that I'm passionate about. I consider myself qualified because I've learned a lot during the time I took care of my little cousins, the children of my neighbors and friends, and also attended two different nurseries. Every day there were a different challenge with the babies and the biggest ones (3-5 years old) therefore that experience prepared me very well for this program. I'm also very independent with household chores, making decisions and I easily adapts to new surroundings, I'm observant, responsible and dedicated person.
