Have you chosen your exchange bestie yet? WEP exchange students from Belgium, Denmark, France and Italy are arriving in Australia this July and we’re looking for families, just like yours, to host them! Choose your student ASAP! Here are Sara and Georgia to tell you why it’s the best thing you’ll ever do!
In 2015, Mt Beauty high school student, Georgia, set off to Italy on the student exchange journey of a lifetime! Within days of arriving, she was raving about her new home!
“I’m having the most amazing experience! Rome was spectacular and I’m living in Malnate, the cutest little town, with beautiful views and houses! And, just to top it off, they have the best gelato shop only a walk away!”
During her exchange Georgia made connections and memories for life and when she returned to Mt Beauty, there was only thing she wanted to do…HOST! She jumped onto this website and chose her student, Sara!
Sara is from Italy and super into baking sweets (talk about the perfect host sister)! Sara wanted to go on exchange to challenge herself, to open her mind and to discover everything the world has to offer!
“I started talking to Georgia before leaving Italy because I was so extremely excited to have a host sister, I always wanted to have an actual one! The fun thing is that me and Georgia actually knew each other before they decided to host me because we were already following each other on Instagram! When she told me she would be my host sister, I couldn’t believe it!” Said Sara.
When Sara and Georgia met for real, their adventures together began!
“My host family have made my exchange and they have surely been one of the most important parts of it! We started getting on well from the very first moment and now I see them as my second family!”
For Georgia having a sister was amazing! In fact, she reckons Sara was the best part of the family!
“We would run down the hall to each other’s rooms each night telling gossip we’d just heard, or talking about Pretty Little Liars because she got me hooked on the show! We were always in each other’s rooms, stealing each other’s clothes, using each other’s perfumes and just hanging out. I saw her as like my twin, having a sister was the best experience I could ask for, I wish she lived here permanently!”
Although Sara has gone back to Italy and these exchange besties are now separated by oceans they have grand plans to visit each other again!
“We hope to travel to all sorts of different countries, in fact when we were together we made plans to go to Greece together and many other places on top of that! We still talk every single day, sending each other our homework/study, or pictures of what we’re doing, or even the food we’re eating because we always talk about food. But yes, we will 100% see each other again soon!”
Happy travels girls!
