Which player most inspired you and why? Katrine Pedersen has inspired me a lot. She always trains hard to improve, and she does a lot to help me become a better player. She never has to make tackles beacause she's always in the right place at the right time, and she always knows where her team-mates are.

Which coach most inspired you? Tresor Egholm, Øyvind Eide, and Lars Petter Andressen.

What was the best advice they gave you? Believe in your skills and concentrate in every training session.

Best player you've played with? Mats Dæhli

Toughest opponent? Valencia men's U15 side

What are your memories of your first club as a child? We played for fun, and had so many good coaches. Every training session was something special. We won everything worth winning in Norway, at our age level.

What tip would you give a young player hoping to succeed? Play for the love of the game and train hard.

What was the experience of playing in a youth final tournament? It was a huge experience. To play an international tournament for my country was very big for me. Everthing was bigger and we felt so special even though there weren't very many people watching us play. It is something I will never forget.
