Letter from previous au-pair

To whom it may concern:

 My name is Norma Navarro and I am a UK student who decided to travel as an au pair to widen my horizons.

 I stayed with Sarah Tomasello Carnevale and her family for 8 months from January 2007 looking after her children, Mara and Tommaso. My stay with the family was a wonderful experience and I was very well looked after. I was accomodated in a lovely apartment just next door to their home with all the adequate facilities. It was a unique experience from which I learnt a lot and I surely felt like part of the family after a couple of months. I was made very welcome and I highly recommend any au pair to go and stay with Sarah and her family.

 Thank you

 Kind Regards

Norma Navarro
