Marlene (17) from Italy: With a smiley face and kind nature, I like to help and support others as much as I can. I have an extensive list of hobbies, but find I gravitate most towards creative activities, such as sewing, painting and cooking. I also love sports, especially swimming and volleyball. I do voluntary work and love spending time with my extended family, especially my little cousins. Like most people, I have had many dreams I never pursued, so I am unbelievably excited that this trip I imagined is actually happening! If I could have a host sibling and/or a pet, all my dreams will have come true!

Host A WEP Student Arriving in 2023!
Baptiste (16) from Switzerland (French): With a long held goal of becoming an English teacher, the chance to come to Australia is a dream come true! I am an artistic boy and love drawing, dancing and singing. My main sport is swimming - I am a bit of a water baby! I love to spend time with family and friends, enjoying simple things like a walk tor sharing a bubble tea. I am so grateful for this opportunity!
Aitor (15) from France: A sociable and independent boy who dreams of one day becoming an astronaut, there is very little that doesn’t interest me! As such, I have a broad range of interests including playing double bass, surfing, drawing, reading and cooking. I am also passionate about animals, nature and the environment. I hope to learn as much as I can about your culture and history!
Quentin (16) from France: Sociable and respectful, I hope to contribute as much to this shared experience as my host family! I am a sporty boy and enjoy many activities, but my favourite is basketball. I’d love to keep playing in Australia, but am also excited to try new things! I love spending time with my family, including caring for my younger sister who has a disability. I can’t wait to meet you!
