Tell us something about yourself!

I became an au pair on a whim, sort of a gap year before I start down the path for my professional life again.

Why would you like to join the group?

As much as I love the family I'm living with, I want to meet some people my age! Being an au pair is great, but it can be a little lonely, and I'd love the chance to meet new people.

Why are you a girl gone international?

I'm originally from California, born and raised, but I was also raised in a Korean household--so I've spent my whole life suspended between cultures and languages. Plus I'm a girl, and I went international by moving to Vienna... :)

Why are you in Vienna?

Why not? :D Vienna was my favorite city in my travels while I studied abroad nearby, and I decided I wanted to be close by. I think Vienna combines a number of wonderful things--architecture, art, music, cuisine, nature, city life, etc--but I am especially fond of how wonderful the music is here! I watched my first opera in Vienna, and it changed my life, quite literally--I started taking formal voice lessons soon after I returned from Austria and started studying classical voice, graduating with a degree in vocal performance.

Introduction

I'm an au pair in Baden, here for the year, but originally from Orange County, California. I just graduated with degrees in Music (history emphasis) and Vocal Performance, and the classical music here makes Vienna a perfect place for me!
