Au Pairs Reflect on Fourth of July, What United States Means to Them

All across the United States, Au Pair in America au pairs from over 50 countries are learning about American traditions, teaching their host families about their own cultures, and so much more — all while providing excellent live-in child care. Au pairs live in all types of U.S. communities in various parts of the country — from the east coast to the west coast, and everywhere in between. Independence Day is the perfect opportunity to reflect on how they feel about their experiences in the United States, and what the country means to them.

In celebration of Fourth of July this year, we asked our au pairs to share what the United States symbolizes to them. Here’s what some of them had to say:

1. Au pair Celina from Germany, hosted in Maryland
