Student, Popular Fiction
Samuel became a fulltime bachelor’s degree student in September 2015 and was elected to the office of Student Representative. He likes books, and art, music, movies and has an unhealthy appreciation of rain. A Norwegian weirdo. Arguably overly ambitious about everything: proudly, and most especially, creative writing.
