I am 24 years old, born in Uummannaq and live in Nuuk as I attend Actors' School. It really means a lot to me. During education, I am learning how to use my body, my voice and emotions so that I can give something to my fellow citizens, and I chose that as I am good at it.

My education at Greenland's National Acting School is very important and interesting to me, I love it because it challenges me and because I learn so much as a person.
I am an acting student at Nunatta Isiginnaartitsisarfia, the National Acting School of Greenland and I am a dancer. I am born in Nuuk, Greenland and I am 19 years old. I want to be an actor because I love that I get to play all these different characters. And when I have worked really hard with something, then getting on stage and have this kind of adrenaline rush I love it.
I am 22 years old and I am born and raised in Nuuk. I am on my second year on The National Theatre School. Performance, singing and acting has always been a part of me, so I am grateful that I get to do what I love.
I’m a passionate actor with a love for poetry, play and physical theatre. I have a Masters in Acting from East15 in England and am currently training and growing as an actor and a culture bearer at Nunatta Isiginnaartitsinermik Ilinniarfia. In the future I dream on being part of Greenland’s theatrical landscape, creating theatre for all of us both here in our country and bringing our theatre out into the rest of the world.
