As some of you know I am going to be an Au-pair in America this year. Today I am going to tell you why I chose America and why I chose to be an Au-pair in America.

[ If you want to read this in dutch or another language, please find the translate button on the right or if you are on a mobile phone down below.  ]

I don't know if you know... probably not.. but I am a nanny now. I live in The Netherlands, born and raised and I am an nanny in Amsterdam. After I graduated  I did not know what to do in my life or with anything to be honest. You know, at that age you want to do anything and everything and you don't want to commit to anything or just one job. At least I didn't.. so I fortunately found a full time nanny job in Amsterdam. The plan was to go there for one year  to figure out what my next school or step might be. Yes, you are right, it is now 2 and a half years later and I am still in Amsterdam. I did / do some home schooled educations because weirdly enough I miss school haha. But now it was time to look for something serious to do (because I am getting older ). I looked for everything that might be my thing but I still don't know what kind of education or job I want to do for the rest of my life. So I came across an Au-pair site and a few steps and decisions later I was planning to go to America to be an Au-pair.

You might ask : why America. I always said that I wanted to live in America my whole life. I wanted to go to high school there, I love the houses and although I have never visited America I love everything about it. So that choice was easy to make and because I am loving this job that choice was easy to make too.

So that I the reason I am going to America as an Au-pair. It is a fun job and while I am doing this job I can visit and experience the whole American lifestyle. I am so excited!!
