My first experience with OVC was in 2012 when I decided I wanted to become an Au Pair in the USA. I got to travel all over the states, learnt new cultures, made friendships and developed a home away from home. It was truly the most amazing experience of my life, theres not a day that goes by when I dont think about my time in the States. It introduced the most precious people in my life and moulded me into the person that I am today. I encourage everyone to travel and hope to inspire everyone with travel!
My first Overseas trip was through the OVC and I had the time of my life. The bug had bitten. So I decided to change careers, from Civil Engineering and Drafting to Travel.
Having travelled quite a bit prior to the change, I knew I was making a change for the better. I have travelled to about 18 countries since then and I have experienced all types of accommodation and modes of transport, and have had the most wonderful experiences.
One of the highlights being the Hockenheim Formula 1 Grand Prix.
To work in the travel industry, you have to be passionate about travel, and after 11 years, I still love it.
Once the travel bug bites. It is watch out world. And like anything in life, it’s what you make of it.
