I am from Kiel, Germany and 19 years old. 4 years ago I decided to go to Australia as an Au Pair. Since than I planned and grew my plans to go leave my hometown after finishing my A-levels, which is where AIFS came in. AIFS was a great decision and they have been helpful in every situation. I am au-pairing in a small town called "Carnarvon," 1000 kilometres north of Perth. I have two kids. One little girl (1 year old) called Ella and one little boy, Liam (almost 5). They are special, so lovely and adorable. They give me so much love and I became a part of their life and family. They are so attached to me as I am to them. The life in a rural area is fun, interesting and a great adventure. I have grown so much and learned a lot about myself throughout this experience. I'm glad I've done this and made so many great experiences with my new family and my kids. I learned a lot about Australia and I've seen a different Australia than anyone that went to the east coast!
