Stephanie.jpgAfter coming back from Camp America in the Summer of 2003 and having one of the best experiences I’ve ever had, I decided to return to USA to work with children again on the Au Pair in America programme.
 Before the selection of my host family, there were many phone interviews and emailing with both IWH (International Working Holidays) and the host family before a decision was made. It was good as you get a feel for who you could possibly be working for before deciding to commit to anything.

I had great communication with IWH prior to departure and continuously throughout my time in Ohio. I had a perfect match. My host family were a family of 5vwith 3 kids aged 4 6 and 9,and the best dog ever, who lived just outside of Columbus city in Ohio. The whole family was so welcoming, and I felt at home the night I arrived. We shared many interests and I never had a problem finding activities to do with the kids during the day. I was never required to work overtime, but if I wanted to make some extra cash for the week they would always offer me first priority to baby sit when needed.

They were so helpful with arranging my Social Security Number, opening a bank account, helping me prepare for my Ohio drivers licence, obtaining memberships for various places and especially with directions. During my stay I was lucky enough to travel with the family to many places, including Niagara Falls, Roller Coaster Parks, South Carolina twice, Grand Canyon, West Virginia, Skiing in New York, and some friends and I took a road trip to Washington DC. My first 12 months went by so fast that I decided to extend 6 more months before leaving to experience London. I got to experience the true American way of life ie football fever, Thanksgiving, a white Christmas, Independence day, drive through everything and the best peanut butter ever. I made some great friendships that will last a life time with people from all over the world. I was lucky enough to go back for all of last August and it was SO good to see them all again. It felt like being back at home. I love my host family and I can’t wait to see them again!
