I live together with my mother Ina and dad Øystein and big brother Jonathan, and partly with my brother Marius. Also the cat Muscat.

I am a fotball player and I am a pupil at the Montessori-school. 

I belong to the curious and the ones who want to learn but I do not belong to the bullies.

I live in Oslo because I was born here, and I live in a good environment and peaceful society here. I like to use my bicycle, and there are very many accessible roads for the bike. I don’t know what the soundtrack of Oslo would be, but it is more a story about a peaceful city where peace was broken because of the bomb.

I haven’t heard so much about An Enemy of the People, but my dad told me the story,  and I think I understand a little bit of. It is about someone who is right, but if he tells about it, he destroys the city. The people don’t want to know because it will stop them from entering the water world. And it stops tourism. I don’t really know what I think about the saying “the strongest is the one the most alone”. I think what I think and that is right – you are right for yourself, but you are not right for all the others.

When I was three I had a book with a snail in it, and then I thought that I understood everything – but a couple of years later I understood that I don’t understand everything. Now I have found out that I actually know everything, and that everybody knows everything, because what I know I know, and what I don’t know I don’t know. Compared to others though, I don’t know everything.

For the performances I will drive in the car.
