We tell you the story of this Cordovan who is competing today to be a “nanny of the year” in the United States. This is Karen Sateriano, who lived in this American country for some time with a family who hired her through the Au Pair program . The parents of the children applied her to the surprise contest, recognizing the young woman's work and carrying out an act of affection. They leave her in charge of the care of her three children and, in the form of thanks, decided to apply for her to the contest with a moving letter. The emotional statement was chosen among thousands of other applications, and made it possible for her to enter the competition, in which the Cordovan is leading the preferences in head to head votes with a Brazilian colleague.
Karen is 25 years old and is native to the Cordovan town of Unquillo. One day he signed up for a cultural and labor exchange program to leave for the United States, looking to live new experiences. In full search , she found a family that adopted her from the beginning. Not only as an employee, but as one more member of the family, as time passed they were including it in more plans and taking into account for more activities .
Karen came to the North American country to become a pilot, but in one of those laps she decided to apply for the cultural exchange program to afford her studies. Today, this Cordovan is a candidate (nothing more and nothing less) for the “Nanny of the Year” (Au Pair of the Year) as a result of being selected by the organization that led her together with girls from different parts of the world. Karen not only has a job, but she was also able to learn what she needed to fulfill her dream : to be an airplane pilot, a profession that in Argentina has few women in its ranks.
And he achieved all his purposes by accompanying the little Van Wieren . Since with the beginning of classes, the Cordovan took her education on her shoulder. He accepted the challenge of helping children in their tasks without fully mastering English , however finally they were able to pass year and grade thanks to their collaboration.
“ She brought her culture to our home, especially to our kitchen. Karen has taught us her favorite recipes and now we all look forward to having a night of empanadas,” the family wrote in the application note. Completing the experience, the young woman told the media that she also made them try the fernet with coca , alfajores, chocotorta, dulce de leche and also cooked roast and chori.
“ Karen was the front-line superhero our family needed. Its ability to adapt during a pandemic that completely changed its role is incomparable. She did it with joy, innovation and exceptional communication,” says the Van Wieren family in their letter to Cultural Care to justify why they nominated her to be the “Nanny of the Year.”
“ It was a very big surprise for me, I didn't know that the family had proposed me, I found out when the first communication came to me in November last year,” says Karen, moved about the selection.
“ They told me they're supergrateful. When they imagined having a nanny they didn't imagine it was going to be this way,” and Karen said from Chicago, where she resides and works. “ I feel like they are my family and they feel that I'm part of yours,” he said.
Congrats, Nana Karen!
