Antonella Arnau from Argentina wins 2023 IAPA Au Pair of the Year Award

We are thrilled to announce Antonella Arnau as this year’s winner of the IAPA Au Pair of the Year Award. As every year, the winner and runner-up were announced during our annual conference, WETM-IAC in Athens, on Saturday 18 March 2023.

Our jury had the difficult task of selecting the winner from a number of exceptional candidates, but in the end Antonella stood out for her outstanding involvement and impact on her host family, the Serfatis. She has become an integral part of the family and is much loved by all its members. Despite – or because of – some challenges, Antonella and her host family have a strong bond and made many memorable experiences, including trips and family holidays together. Antonella is fully immersed in American culture while serving as an ambassador for her home country of Argentina.

We invite you to watch the video highlighting Antonella’s achievements and congratulate her on this well-deserved recognition.

Well done, Antonella!
