Inga (16) from Germany: I am extremely fascinated with the Australian flora and fauna! I am a creative person with a strong sense for aesthetics. Music is my main avenue of self expression so I sing in a band and at a choir. I wish to come to Australia is to experience the everyday life there, as I’ve heard some wonderful things about your culture and people.

Host A WEP Student Arriving in 2022!
Erika (16) from Canada: A lover of the great outdoors, my adventurous spirit has been nurtured by my parents who have blessed me with some amazing travel opportunities. Apart from seeing some fascinating parts of the world, these experiences have also made me resourceful, independent and open minded. My other interests are hiking, camping, reading and cooking, I also love to spend my time playing my ukelele. Returning to Australia is a dream come true and I can’t wait!
Maddalena C (17) from Italy: I am full of curiosity for everything and deeply committed to my study, friends and family. I work hard to achieve good marks, but equally enjoy hanging out with friends. Practising gymnastics and reading are my passions! I have also recently taken up the slightly unusual hobbies of embroidery and ukelele. I can’t wait to discover your wonderful country!
Max (17) from the Netherlands: I am hard working and wake up each day ready to embrace every opportunity! I am highly sociable and have a deep curiosity about the world around me. My favourite hobby is soccer, although I generally love most sports. I cannot wait to meet you and start this next adventure!
Alma (15) from Germany: I love spending time with friends and family, preferably outdoors! I come from an active family who enjoys skiing and hiking but, personally, my favourite sports are gymnastics and hip hop. I’ve been fortunate to travel widely and have lived in both Sweden and Germany (I speak both languages fluently). I’m so excited to have the opportunity to come to your beautiful country!
Ignacia P (17) from Chile: I'm a person with many hobbies, but my biggest passion is basketball. This sport created some of my most memorable moments in life and and I’ve made some unbreakable bonds with my team mates. It also helped me to developed values like respect and empathy and helped me become an independent person. In life, I like to lead and help people, therefore in the future I hope to work in the medical field and help people.
