Host A WEP Student Arriving in January 2020!
Eli G (17) USA! I am super excited to be able get to know Australia and I hope to become lifelong friends with my host family and potentially visit each other in the future! I come from a close knit family and have been raised in an off-the-grid house deep in the woods. This unique lifestyle has helped me develop independence and good manual/mechanical skills. I am well known in my network for having a big sense of humour, inquisitiveness and friendliness. I can’t wait to meet you and to live like an Australian teenager!
Alba (17) Italian I usually start my days early in the morning, there is always so much to do! I do artistic gymnastics and free climbing. I am also part of a scout team that opens me up to so many trip and volunteering opportunities. I really love scouting as I find it very character building. In the future, I hope to move abroad and to work as an aeronautical engineer! I hope to meet you soon!
Ramiro C (17) Argentina When I am not playing rugby, I enjoy spending time with my friends, listening to music and playing games. I come from a big and busy family and we really enjoy spending time together. My family says I am responsible, sensitive and that I have a great sense of humour. One of my brothers has participated in an exchange program and this has certainly inspired me to follow his steps. I can’t wait to come to Australia and find out more about your family and how life is like as an Australian teenager!
Jeanne R (15) Belgium Hello Australia! Because I study history and geography in English, my English proficiency is already quite good! Learning foreign languages is a true passion of mine. I attend a boarding school, which helped me become quite independent. I can also cook very well and often surprise my family and friends with new dishes. I have also learnt to cook to cater for my gluten intolerance. I hope to see you soon! I will bring all my good spirit in my suitcase!
Francesco (18) Italian Hello from Italy! I would like to thank you for opening your arms, hearts and home to me. I’m a friendly, positive and open-minded person who loves to smile and laugh. I always look for the positive point of view and try my best in every situation. I have such a wide range of interests and love discovering new things. I hope that we will share fantastic memories together!
