The UAE’s Best Nanny for 2018 award goes to Rosie Villa (39) from the Philippines. Rosie won the award, an initiative of a fintech platform for migrants called ‘rise’, on Friday and was selected from among the 42 nannies who were shortlisted for the award. There were more than 2,000 nominations received from families from all across the UAE for this years’ award.
The winner gets a retirement fund worth 1,000,000 in her home country’s currency to help her realise her dreams and so Rosie will receive the grand prize of one-million Philippine peso (Dh69,100) as her retirement fund. Families and friends nominated their nannies online for the award by filling out a form on Facebook to enter the contest and posted a picture of their nanny. Apart from the Best Nanny award, there were three other categories to the award including the Rising Nanny, the Longest Serving Nanny and the Best Employer awards.
