  • Has evolved greatly in last two years, very focused and driven
  • Summary from Bjartey: I am raised and born in the countryside, I went to a small school and in my class in Heiðarskóli (Elementary School), were on average 7 students. It has been a privilege growing up so close to nature, but it has also sometimes been demanding practicing more than 20 hours a week, sometimes very early in the mornings, travelling up to 600 km per week to get to practices. I know what it takes to be successful, and I am very determined and ambitious. I also have a grate family that supports me, drives me, feeds me and encourages me the whole time. My dream now is to go to USA after I finish my graduation in 2024, to see the world and experience something new and exciting.
