Pietro (16) Italian Ciao! I have a friendly and easygoing nature and I always try to see the best in every situation. People often ask me, why do I smile so much? I am a passionate traveller and I'm always open to trying out new things. I have tried numerous sports in my life. Recently I have been enjoying going to the gym and playing tennis. I aspire to go to a good university and get involved with helping animals who are on the brink of extinction. I can't wait to meet my Australian family!

Host A WEP Student Arriving in July 2019
Francesco (17) Italian Hello! I love the outdoors and playing soccer is my main passion. I also enjoy tennis, skiing and all water sports. Since I was a little boy I have been fishing with my dad. I could spend days and nights doing this! I often let the fish go after catching it, as I am also an animal and nature lover. In the evenings, after dinner, I usually wind down by playing video games or I catch up with friends. Thank you in advance for this amazing opportunity!
Nikki (16) Dutch I come from a music loving family, we all play instruments, my mother sings in a choir and I play the flute in an orchestra. My second hobby is circus performance and I practice mainly juggling and aerial silks. After school and after I complete my homework, I like to relax watching YouTube videos of listen to music. I can't wait to meet my Australian family and to see the beautiful Australian nature.
Chiara (17) Italy Hello! I'm a curious and hardworking girl. One of my passions is singing but I can be quite shy about it, so I perform in front of an audience only once a year! I enjoy being active, therefore I have tried numerous sports: volleyball, tennis, gymnastics, diving, swimming as well as baseball. My parents are divorced, but due to this I have gained a wonderful new (step) sister. Thank you for wanting to become my extended family too!
Mathilde (15) French I am cheerful, social and active. Together with my family, we enjoy many different sports, particularly hiking and cycling. At school I do badminton and biathlon. After school, I play handball which I very much enjoy because of the team spirit! My family has hosted a student for a year in the past and we have remained good friends. I can't wait to find myself on the other side of the experience and to make some Australian friends!
Jennis (15) German Being the oldest of my three brothers taught me to be quite responsible and caring. During the week I am usually quite busy with school and after school activities, but during the weekends I enjoy catching up with my friends. Recently I starting practicing ballroom dancing, I am not sure yet if this will become my passion, but it's certainly something interesting to try! I hope to become a true member of your family!
