The delayed arrival of au pair Josefina

Hello everyone! I’m Josefina, I’m 26 years old and I’m from Argentina. I arrived in the Netherlands last month and I’m currently living in The Hague. I was supposed to arrive here last year in April, but due to the corona virus I couldn’t travel and I had to postpone my exchange year.
Despite this, I was not discouraged, I stayed positive and I never hesitated to go ahead with my idea of come to the Netherlands! I understood it was a moment that affected us all and we just had to accept it. I let things happen when the time it’s right. So, I decided to continue with my activities, working, studying and being with my family and friends, as much as possible. It helped me a lot to keep in touch with my host family during the last year, that led us to know each other better and to hold our relationship even in the distance.
Now that I can finally be here, I’m excited to start my year as an au pair, making friends and memories, exploring new places, as well as knowing it’s people and culture.
I hope my experience in the process to become an au pair will serve as motivation for all those who are not sure to come here, because they were in a similar situation, or for those who are just starting to look for a host family!
