– I get really inspired by the music

Last summer I spend my holiday here in the southern part of Norway and that’s when I decided I wanted to study here.

From the Netherlands

Tell us about you and from which University you are from.

I am 21 years old and I am from a city called Haarlem in the Netherlands. It’s a little bit bigger than Kristiansand. I am a vocalist and songwriter and my dream is to be able to travel with my music. I also think it would be a lot of fun to enter the Eurovision Song Contest one day!

In my spare time, I love hanging out with my roommates and going to jam sessions in my home town.

Why did you choose Norway?

I love Scandinavian pop music! I get really inspired by the music and the Norwegian nature. My favorite artist is Sigrid. Last summer I spend my holiday here in the southern part of Norway and that’s when I decided I wanted to study here.

How was your arrival? What was your first impression?

I arrived late at night, so I didn’t really see much when I came. But now that I’ve had a few days to look around, everything seems really beautiful and everything is really close to where I live: nature, downtown, university etc.

What do you think about the quality of the University and its courses?

I really like the facilities. Especially the nice practicing rooms. The courses also seem very interesting and I really look forward to the songwriting class.

What do you like most in Kristiansand and why?

The size of the town is perfect and everything is close to where I live. It also seems like there’s something happening all the time, like concerts and performances etc.

Have you planned any trips during your stay?

I would really like to go to Bergen and Ålesund and I would love to see the Northern lights!
