Charles (17) USA Cycling is an important part of my life and I enjoy being part of a cross-country bike riding group! As part of the school chess team, I also spend time playing chess. In summer, I enjoy fishing, swimming and kayaking. When I am older, I would like to become a congressman. I really appreciate my host family letting me be a part of their family in Australia.

Host A WEP Student Arriving in January 2018
Julie (16) Belgium I enjoy many outdoor activities, especially rock climbing, horse riding and athletics. It is my future goal to help those in need and I have already travelled overseas several times on humanitarian projects. With a keen interest in Australia, I am excited to have the opportunity to live with my host family, to learn Australian culture and to share my culture too.
Gina (16) Argentina I am very organised and I like to plan ahead so I can fit lots of things into one day. In my spare time, I enjoy reading science fiction stories and my favourite book is Harry Potter. My family and I enjoy playing cards and ping pong together. I am looking forward to learning about Australian music, food and what life is like as an Australian teenager.
Irina (17) Argentinian With an honest, caring and talkative nature, I always enjoy telling jokes! My parents are very busy so I try to help them by taking care of my five year old sister and doing the housework. I enjoy reading, drawing and watching soccer. I can't wait to learn more about my host family, their hobbies and routines!
Mitchell (17) USA Hello from the USA! When I was younger, I played the trombone, guitar and piano. I love trying new instruments! As an uncle, I also enjoy spending time with my nephews and my family. After hosting five students, I am very excited to get to know my own host family.
