Lucas is from Brazil and is an artist. He completed a Graphics Design course and works as an Illustrator and Tattoo Artist.

Pedro is from Brazil and worked as an Electrical Engineer. He enjoys exercising every day and loves to cook, and is hoping to get some work in a restaurant, bakery or coffee shop during his time here. He came to Australia because he thinks it is an amazing country and he has some friends living in the area who are enjoying the great Byron lifestyle! Pedro hopes to become fluent in English and possibly apply to study at a Cooking College or similar.

Natsumi is from Japan and grew up in Amami-ohshima, an island off the south of Japan. She is the youngest in her family of six. Natsumi studied Sports Science and enjoys going for walks, reading books and watching movies.

Marina is from Switzerland and is living in a small village called Saas-Fee. There are no cars are allowed in the village and she prefers the clean air of the village compared to living in a larger town or city.

Marina is in Australia for just six weeks and after her four weeks with Lexis she plans to do some travelling up the east coast.
