In 2013, I came to this country to experience what was a wonderful cultural exchange as an Au Pair with Agent Au Pair. Some of the moments I came across with during this experience were wonderful and some not so good, but through it all, Agent Au Pair and my Local Reps were there to support me and help me.

Almost two years ago, I became a Local Representative with Agent Au Pair in Seattle, WA to give back and share my knowledge as a former Au Pair. I know what it means to be in a new country with a different culture, language, and customs. Living with a new family, trying to make new friends and dealing with different problems that can arise from this experience can be very stressful and overwhelming for the parties involved. Having encountered these issues before, I feel that I can relate to the Au Pairs and Host Families and guide them through this transition.

Earlier this year, I took a few months off to travel around Southeast Asia (I love traveling) and I have settled back my Local Rep duties after relocating to Long Beach, CA. My favorite part about being a Local Rep is to be that person that APs can trust. That person with who they can open up about their problems, and know that they will be heard and understood because that person has been in their shoes and can relate to them.

I love meeting people from other countries and learning about their cultures.
I also wanted to provide support to Au Pairs during their time here in the U.S.

When I joined Agent Au Pair in 2018 I wasn't totally sure of my role as a local representative but I liked the idea of having the opportunity to develop relationships and help people from around the world. A year later, I like how flexible is the local representative position, the opportunity to mentor the au pairs and support the host families.
Furthermore, I really appreciate the cultural exchanges with these young women from different parts of the world, learning about their families and friends, their comfort foods, their traditions like the Santabary food and dance festival in Madagascar to give thanks for the rice harvest, the sport and music in England or La Pascua processions in Colombia. In turn when the au pairs often asked questions about me it has been always fun to share my hobbies, tell them about my cooking, dancing to Caribbean music, my love for soccer (football for the aficionados), tennis and mystery books. As an Agent Au Pair local representative, it has been a fun and gratifying year!
