What is your motivation to become an Au Pair abroad? I have always wanted to go abroad so I started researching Au pairing back in 2017-2018 but life kind of got in the way. Now I am ready to take on this new adventure (an unusual and exciting or daring experience), a new season in life. I would say my motivation for Au pairing is adventure, I have two little siblings and I am well aware of the “adventures” that come along with helping raise kids. Its not easy but it is so rewarding when you see them grow everyday knowing you have had a hand in who they are today by the way you lead by example, encouraged, reassured, directed and loved them. There is also the AMAZING opportunity for traveling, learning about their culture(s), a chance to broaden perspective, make memories, new friends and all the other awesome things.
