HOW DO YOU SAY "FIERCE" IN NORWEGIAN?
An AE reader (thanks Luna!)
let us know that one of the contestants on Norway’s Next Top Model came
out on the show last week: 22-year-old Silje from Oslo.
Here’s Silje in a Top Model photo shoot:
In her official
bio, Silje is described as: "Silje er en skikkelig guttejente. Hun er
makeup-artist og er frisørlærling. På fritiden liker Silje
å være med venner, hun er også interessert i film og trening.
Silje har aldri jobbet som modell før, men har alltid hatt lyst til å
bli modell. På mammas oppfordring meldte Silje seg på Top Model
og nå vil hun se om hun har en fremtid i bransjen."
The only part of that I understood was "makeup-artist," but I think
the rest roughly translates to, "People tell me that I look like Jake
in Sixteen Candles."
