Founding Au Pair Link was definitely not a ‘spur of the moment’ decision. I’m originally from Sweden and prior to arriving in New Zealand, I had worked as an Au Pair in Connecticut (USA).
My time in the USA was incredible and made a huge impact on the way I thought about things, and evidently the path I wanted to take in life. Caring for two little girls, I decided that I wanted to enable other young people (and by extension, Host Families) to build the same connection with others around the world.
So in short, my own experience as an Au Pair really began to define my life for those twelve months, and it continues to define and reflect what I am truly passionate about – positive, life-changing experiences.
