Growing up in Dubai and Singapore, Katrine has always been interested in travelling and learning about other cultures. At 17 she founded The Gentle Flower, creating and selling jewellery in Norway and abroad. Her background laid the foundation for her studying International Marketing at BI Norwegian Business School, and the completion of her bachelor’s degree at ESADE Business School in Barcelona. She enjoys writing, and two of her poems have been published in anthologies. Being the first person in Norway to take the IGCSE exam in Mathematics, and one of the first three people to take the IGCSE exam in English as a first language in addition to regular middle school, shows Katrine’s dedication and ambition. Katrine is a cheerful person, with a contagious laughter that can be heard from afar. Katrine wants to make a difference in people’s lives, and intends to do this through her business at NSE.
