Diego, from Spain, likes sports, video games and hanging out with his friends. He has been studying Business and working in a bank, but decided to take a break to come to Australia!

Suguru, from Japan, enjoys rafting, canyoning and stand up paddle boarding! This is part of the reason he chose Australia for his studies, as he is able to do all of these activities here and enjoy the beautiful nature! He wants to improve his English so he can complete a yoga training course whilst in Australia and open his own yoga studio on his return to Japan!
Natalia is from Spain. Her main interest is her job as a Therapist; she loves learning new techniques to apply to her patients.
