“I was the shortest girl in every class, but standing up on stage I had a much better view on things. Best of all, I was given enormous amounts of applause and attention having leads in every school play from kindergarten and up.

At the age of five, standing on top of a coffee table at my grandmother’s house, I entertained her guests by singing and dancing to Swedish icon Sarah Leander’s song “Do you want to see a star?” The adults’ eyes were beaming! No one had ever looked at me like that before. And right then and there it just dawned on me: Entertaining is my talent in life. And from then on it was the only thing I really wanted to do.”
