Ilaria (17) from Italy Hello from Italy. I am a cheerful and friendly girl. I am very family oriented and love spending time with my parents and sister, hiking or playing board games. I am quite creative and enjoy drawing and painting. My other hobby is volleyball, which I play three times a week. I can’t wait to live with your family in Australia and become a “Citizen of the World”! Bye!

Host A WEP Student Arriving in January 2021!
Victoria N (16) from Belgium With an easygoing nature I am always happy to discover new things, taste new dishes, try new sports and meet new people. I tried many different sports in my life, such as skiing, dancing and swimming, but I had to “keep it easy” recently due to growing pains in my knee. I am chatty and very social and have a large network of friends. I also hope to develop a close bond with your family and to welcome you in Belgium in the future!
Tom (16) from Germany Hello! I am a curious and reliable person and I value in others honesty and humour. I love travelling and spending time in the nature and with my family. I am quite good at fishing and I also really like playing football. I even coach this game to a team of 7 year old children. My parents went to Australia several years ago and told me all about your amazing country. I am very curious and can’t wait to experience the Australian lifestyle!
Olivia (16) from the USA I am active and prefer spending hours outdoors rather than indoors. As I live in a rural setting, close to nature, I go rock climbing quite often. In my downtime I enjoy filling my schedule with arts and crafts or reading. It would be however exciting to try a totally different lifestyle and new sports during my time in Australia! For my future, my goal is to pursue a career in marine science. I really look forward to meeting and spending time with my Australian family!
Giorgio (17) from Italy Hello from Italy! I am very lucky to live in the mountains, because I love nature! My interests include ecology, sports and playing piano. In the future, I hope to become a computer engineer, because I am quite good with numbers and technology. As a true Italian, I love to cook, and therefore I often prepare meals for myself and for my parents. See you soon!
Lance (16) from the Netherlands - I live in a small village in the south of the Netherlands. My home is a busy and happy place, as I have five siblings! In my spare time, I enjoy listening to music, skateboarding and chilling with friends. Cooking is another hobby of mine and I have a part time job as a cook. My personality is quite laid-back and relaxed by I also love being active and spending time outdoors. I therefore feel that Australia will be a good fit for me. Hope to meet you soon!
