2017 Au Pair of the Year Winner.

Samira Haas from Germany.

We’re proud to announce that Samira Haas from Germany has won Au Pair of the Year 2017. She was nominated by the Weingarth family with this heartfelt video.


Every year Au Pair Link receives nominations for the Au Pair of the Year competition. Each entry is judged based on the writing from the heart, the passion of the entry, the specific and exceptional differences made to the lives of the children and parents and the evident bond developed between the au pair and host family.


This year Samira Haas received the title of Au Pair of the Year 2017 thanks to her host family’s nomination.


Samira started with the Weingarth family in February 2017 when she flew all the way from Berkach, Germany. Samira has been awarded a STA Travel voucher worth $1000 and a Certificate of Excellence. It’s her chance to make the most of her stay here and experience what New Zealand has to offer. The Weingarth family also won a free au pair placement for their winning nomination.


Congratulations Samira.
