Meet Daniela Herrera Arias. She left her home in Costa Rica 18 months ago to come to the United States as an Au Pair. Making the move to Columbus, Ohio wasn’t an easy decision – it was hard leaving her friends and family. “The whole experience is a roller coaster,” Daniela tells us. She initially experienced some culture shock and homesickness, but today she believes that joining the Au Pair program was the best decision she ever made.
Halfway through her second year here, Daniela says, “this has exceeded my expectations!” She loves the places she’s been and the experiences she’s had in the U.S. and couldn’t be more grateful for all the people she has met – especially her awesome host family. She can’t wait to continue her adventure, and we can’t wait to see what she does next!
