Liesl — Au pair in New York
I’m 24, I’m from Cape Town, South Africa, and I graduated from university before becoming an au pair. I decided to stay for two years and went through rematch in my second year - I think I have a lot of information and experience to share, especially with prospective au pairs who are nervous about things going wrong while in the USA.
