Ellen (16) from Denmark - Australia has always been a dream destination for me. My family has a special connection to your country, because my grandfather was the acoustic design advisor when Sydney Opera House has been built. Over the last few years my family hosted numerous exchange students, so it’s very exciting to be able to be on the other side of the experience! Personal relationships are very important to me. I am very close with my family and I love making new friends. I love to play board games, reading and baking. See you soon!

Host A WEP Student Arriving in July 2020!
Helena (16) from Denmark - I have chosen to come to Australia mainly because of its beautiful nature. I very much love nature and animals! When not studying, I work at a service station or play handball, which is my favourite sport! In a nutshell, I am an active, family orientated and social girl. I look forward to becoming part of your family!
Jacopo (16) from Italy - I am a quiet and calm boy with many passions and aspirations. Karate is my favourite sport, I like how it contributes to character development. I also have an interest in history and philosophy. I always try to be on top of all current affairs and I often cross check them in different sources, to get a more objective view of a given situation. As a family, we practise skiing in winter and kite surfing in summer. I am very excited to to visit your fascinating country!
Agnese (17) from Italy - I am not sure yet what I’d like to do in the future (perhaps work in the health sector?) but I hope I’ll find inspiration whilst on exchange! In my free time I enjoy going to the gym, swimming, listening to music, reading and meeting with my friend. I also volunteer for the Red Cross and attend acting classes. I love cooking, therefore I often help with meal preparation. But most of all I enjoy baking, because I have a sweet tooth! Can’t wait to meet you in person!
Esteban (17) from Belgium I wish to come to Australia because it’s such a mysterious country! In Belgium I live in a village and we are currently building a new, eco house. I help with the build as much as I can. Playing sports and books (reading and writing) are my main interests. In fact I would like to become a writer. My favourite books are fantasy books, such as Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. Thank you for choosing me, I will help you whenever you want and do my best for it to be a good experience for all of us!
Valentina (15) Belgium. I am a social girl and I hope to make a lot of new friends in Australia! In our family we love cooking, especially during the weekends whilst discussing events of the past week. My hobbies are playing the guitar and hockey. I go to practise most days after school. After a busy day I enjoy spending time with my family and watching TV. I can’t wait to meet you and discover what life is like in Australia!
