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!
Emma (17) from Italy: With an extrovert personality, I love new challenges and making new friends! I think I am quite mature for my age as I am independent and often cook and look after the house. Acrobatic gymnastics is my passion and I practise it three times per week. I also like looking after myself - staying healthy and experimenting with new styles and fashion is what I enjoy.
Hailee (15) from Canada: I am an enthusiastic and energetic girl. I pride myself in being kind and helpful. I enjoy a wide variety of sports, especially lacrosse, hockey and soccer. I am also extremely interested in mechanics and enjoy working on my dad’s race car with him. I have long dreamt of this adventure!
Sara (17) from Italy: Enthusiastic and full of energy, confident and always ready to embrace a new challenge! My interests are diverse and range from snowboarding to embroidery. I love many sports, especially volleyball. I can’t wait for the chance to embrace everything about Australia!
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!
