David (17) from Italy/Austria I live in a quite interesting part of the world, in the German-speaking autonomous region in Northern Italy which identifies culturally with Austria. I always prioritise doing my homework, but once I am done I get stuck into drawing, athletics, taking pictures, cooking, and on rainy days I like watching TV series. Cooking is a big passion of mine and I pride myself in cooking healthy meals, as I am not a big meat fan. I try to be polite at all times, tolerant and patient towards others. In my opinion everyone is unique and special in his/her own way! I can’t wait to meet you!

Host A WEP Student Arriving in July 2020!
Laura (16) from Germany I mostly spend my free time studying, meeting with friends or reading. I love reading because I believe that it gives your creativity a chance to come alive! My favourite author is Jane Austin. I also really like going to the theatre. Thank you so much for your generosity to host an exchange student.
Lou-Ann (15) from France I am a very active girl who is fascinated with all the different cultures of this world! I have visited many countries, hosted exchange students and recently worked for a month as an au pair in London. It will be a dream come true to immerse myself in the Australian culture for a year! I like movies and I frequently go to the cinema. I exercise a lot! Dancing is my main passion but I also love water sports, cross fitness, snowboarding and running. Thank you for your hospitality and kindness, see you soon!
Lance (16) from the Netherlands - I live in a small village in the south of the Netherlands. My home is a busy and happy place, as I have five siblings! In my spare time, I enjoy listening to music, skateboarding and chilling with friends. Cooking is another hobby of mine and I have a part time job as a cook. My personality is quite laid-back and relaxed by I also love being active and spending time outdoors. I therefore feel that Australia will be a good fit for me. Hope to meet you soon!
Lowie (16) Belgium. I am looking forward to getting to know a new country, a new culture and a new way of life in Australia! I have many interests but my favourite things to do are learning circus tricks and enjoying the little things in life. I am very excited to become part of your family and hope it will be a beautiful experience not only for me, but also for you. I am looking forward to it!
Ambroise (16) French Bonjour from France! Skiing is my passion and I often practice even in summer, when I travel to the Alps. My other hobbies include judo, rugby, tennis, playing the piano and singing. I am also preparing for medical studies, so I have to put a little bit more into my studies at school. In Australia I hope I will get a chance to observe the local animals and to play some rugby! I am very curious to discover the Australian way of living!
