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!
Helena (16) from Norway I am a social girl, fascinated with human nature. Therefore in the future I would like to become a psychologist or medical doctor. Most weekends, me and my family spend in our cabin in the mountains. We fill our time watching movies, downhill cycling or skiing (in winter). During my time in Australia, I hope to try some Ausralian sports, to broaden my horizon, learn more about myself and become more independent!
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!
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!
Marla (16) from Germany I always wanted to visit Australia because of its beautiful landscape and interesting culture. Naturally, I am now super exited to get the chance to live there for a whole year and to get to know how you! As a typical teenager, I enjoy meeting with my friends, listening to music and watching Netflix. I am also quite a passionate cook and I am learning to make dishes from different cuisines. See you soon!
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!
This sounds great! How do I find out more?
