Siila (16) from Denmark I am a calm girl, fascinated with science. I love physics and maths and I hope to be able to get a good education. I enjoy reading and painting sometimes. I play piano and love listening to music. In the past I used to practise swimming, but I am currently looking for a new sport to practise. I come from a part of the world vastly different than Australia. Greenland is a quiet part of the Danish Realm and it will be very exciting to spend some time in your country!

Host A WEP Student Arriving in July 2020!
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!
Flaminia (17) from Italy - My favourite subjects are science and art, in fact my whole family is scientifically inclined. We are also all passionate cooks, I personally specialise in baking delicious cakes! Since I was eight years old I’ve been a scout and I am about to become a scouting educator. My other passion is rhythmic gymnastics and I even occasionally take part in competitions. See you soon, I hope to become a true part of your family!
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!
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!
Luis (15) from Germany I am a sporty boy who loves soccer! Because all my friends also play soccer, training sessions are also a social time for me. I also practise diving and play drums. I am a member of a small orchestra in my village. I always endeavour to be a good and open minded person and I value people for being honest and friendly to others. See you soon!
