So I mentioned in my last post that I would love to live abroad. Abroad as in, in another country (maybe that's the actual definition of abroad? Maybe I'm using it wrong?) or in my own country, America. As long as I'm moving or getting ready to move, I just want some kind of movement in my life.
So enter GeoVisions.org, with this amazing program called the Conversation Corps. And it seems too good to be true when they have a program that lets you become an Au Pair in France for the summer (or the entire year, each way it's only $750). Now, I didn't mention this earlier, I believe, but I was born to be a nanny. From obsessing about all the Babysitting Club books to babysitting my little brother to recently (the past four years) spending the summer with my sister and her growing family, helping take care of both newborns and toddlers. And when my sister and I were discussing what I should do with my life (teacher?), she mentioned that I should become an Au Pair.
So of course I was excited and thought that this HAD to be a sign from above, me stumbling on this website through a friend's recommendation.
And then I thought "Hmm. Too good to be true. I should check this out."
So I have been. I've been reading blogs from people who have participated or will participate in the programs GeoVisions offers, along with researching the "bossman" Randy LeGrant.
If this is legit, then I'm going for it. If not, then I'm going to find out what's up and report it.
