Adelaide (16) from France - I am a cheerful, independent girl who enjoys sports in general, but in particular tennis. In fact I had the opportunity to turn professional but decided to play just for enjoyment. I also like spending time with my family and friends - exploring the city, playing board games or watching movies. I also love animals! I hope my exchange will be the greatest adventure of my life!

Host A WEP Student Arriving in 2023!
Lucia (17) from Italy: As a lover of sports, I have tried everything from gymnastics to surfing but my current passion is for volleyball. I have a huge appreciation for the wonders of the world and from a young age have been gifted things like telescopes because of my keen interest in science. Above all, I am curious and kind and can’t wait to learn all about you and Australia!
Maud (17) from France - Although somewhat reserved and shy, I value my relationships with my friends and family. I am creative rather than sporty, although I enjoy boxing, skiing and snowboarding. I am very curious and love to create - I can often be found tinkering around the house or garden, baking cakes or taking photographs! I am impatient to begin my Australian adventure!
Penelope (17) from the USA: With my background as an adoptee from a Chinese orphanage, I am extremely resilient and grateful for any opportunities life affords me. I love to eat and to cook - I’m becoming quite good at it! I also enjoy reading, watching movies, spending time with friends and family and exercising. I am so interested in other cultures and am so excited about coming to Australia!
Alberto (17) from Italy - I consider myself a friendly and mature boy who finds it easy to meet new people. I love being active and enjoy a variety of sports, but to say I am obsessed with volleyball is not an exaggeration! I love this sport so much and play with quite a high level team. During my down time I enjoy reading and listening to music, especially rock! I hope to become a “real” part of your family.
This sounds great! How do I find out more?
