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!
Hugo (16) from Belgium I come from a tight knit family who loves sport! In my life I tried a few different disciplines, but triathlon is currently my favourite. I am well organised and get good marks at school, which leaves me with plenty of time for “fun” activities and helping around the house. I am looking forward to discovering new sports in Australia, meeting new friends and gaining an extended family! I have heard that Australian people are very welcoming, open and they don’t take themselves too seriously. I am intrigued! 🙂
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!
Josefina (15) from Argentina I always found Australia hypnotising and inviting. In Argentina we have a happy and social culture and so I think is yours! I love spending my spare time with family and friends. We often go hiking, camping or spend time at the water. Musical comedy is my biggest passion. It involves everything that I love the most - dance, singing and acting. I can’t wait to find out a little bit more about you, see you soon in Australia!
Anita (17) from Italy I am a positive and independent girl and I always try to see the bright side to every situation. Eating healthily and exercising is something that makes me feel particularly good. I often visit the gym or practise boxing. My other passions are Formula 1 car racing and reading books! I hope you will find me to be the right match for your family, see you soon!
Samuel (15) from Chile In a nutshell, I am adaptable, I don’t like to stand out and people say I have a good sense of humour! Rugby is my favourite sport and I’ve practised it since I was only 5 years old. Recreationally, I also enjoy other sports, such as swimming, soccer and basketball. Animals are also an important part of my life, I therefore have a few pets at home and enjoy horseback riding. Luckily, my family in the county side has horses, which allows me to ride quite frequently. I hope that we will be able to learn from each other and share our cultures! See you soon!
