I selected Global Vietnam Aupair because first had known by reference information online, this was the most prestigious Aupair center in Vietnam. I also knew about Global Vietnam Aupair via facebook of a friend. After reference information, I found Aupair in America to be an exciting, challenging and rewarding program. At the same time, I had thought I was quite suitable for this program. Because I had experience with children, from work at the time I graduated. Then, I attended a seminar of the center in Ho Chi Minh City. And after that, I felt very comfortable. Because of the dedicated guidance from the sisters. And had been seen the real experiences from the Aupairs was joining. And I decided to choose Global Vietnam Aupair.
There are times when I want to give up – Tran Huyen Tran – Aupair America 2016December,06 2018
So I decided to join. After having interviewed and having all kinds of papers that needed to prepare. The next hardest step was finding the right host. In my own opinion, to be able to earn the host fast and suitable, the most important thing was how much I really wanted to experience the program. When I really wanted something, I would try my best to make that happen. Sincerely and carefully prepared from the small things such as sending messages to the host till talking. And keeping in touch was very important and necessary.
There was a time when I was hesitate to continue and there were times when I wanted to give up. Because sometimes things did not go my way. And that delayed me in searching for a host for some time. But at the same time I did not want just because of the temporary difficulties that I missed the opportunity. The experience was sometimes not easy. But it was always great and worth it. And I continued after the failed times. Finally, I found a suitable host. And according to me, suitable was the single most important factor in the success of one year experience in the new land.
My share for the future Aupairs which is always prepare carefully and nurture your dream to be experienced. Sometimes you will not succeed with the hosts that you think you really like, so do not be discouraged because it will be an opportunity for you to have experience communicating with people living in another culture and will find a more suitable host family in the future.
The place I will come is Brooklyn, where have a distinct culture, independent art and unique architectural heritage. Get ready for the exciting experience ahead.
