Frederik (16) from Denmark I am an outgoing, social guy who loves meeting new people. I love sports, especially soccer, which I both play each week as well as coach a younger team. It would be so much fun to try some of your local sports! Travelling to Australia is going to be a lifetime dream coming true for me and I can't wait to meet you and understand more about your family and culture.

Host A WEP Student Arriving in October 2020!
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!
Laura (16) from Germany I mostly spend my free time studying, meeting with friends or reading. I love reading because I believe that it gives your creativity a chance to come alive! My favourite author is Jane Austin. I also really like going to the theatre. Thank you so much for your generosity to host an exchange student.
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!
Josephine (16) from Denmark - I am a positive and determined girl. I feel a strong connection to Australia since my father was born there. Although I prefer playing piano and cooking to participating in sports, I do enjoy golf and play with my father regularly. During the darker months of the year I often go to the gym, to keep my energy levels up! I am looking forward to exploring the daily life in Australia!
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!
