Episode 1: "How to make au pairing work for you: The first steps"

Rebecca introduces herself

I’m Rebecca and I am an English au pair working in Frankfurt, Germany until September 2023.

In 2022, I graduated from university having studied Spanish and Portuguese and was searching for my next step. Feeling quite lost and unsure as to what to do next, I decided to be an au pair for a year. The idea was to clear my head, give myself some space to think and to gain a new and exciting experience.

I am now enjoying my life as an au pair and planning a future career in Marketing / PR.

I hope you enjoy my podcast!
