Hi, my name is Wiviann Breibybråten, I am 19
years old and comes from Bærum in Norway. I chose to go to Pasvik
folkehøyskole because my sister went here last year and when I was visiting her
I fell in love with the place (the nature and the school) so I decided to start
here. When I was here, I learned about the different main courses I could
choose from, and I develop an interest for Hot Arctic - Geopolitics in the
north. Before I visited here, I had
no interest in politics. So why did I choose Hot Arctic - Geopolitics in the
north? I chose this main course because as I heard more about Finnmark's
history I got a interest for the area and wanted to learn more about Finnmark,
the borders and the politics. So what if I don’t so much about this subject, I
am here to learn and to experience new things.
Hey,I`m Maria. I`m from Russia, Nickel. I finished my school in Russia and now I am studying in Pasvik Folk School in Svanvik,Norway. I can speak in English and a little in Norwegian. Also, I am an artist, I finished art school in Russia. I decided to study in folk school, because I want to learn Norwegian language and make new friends. It will be good expirience for me. In this school I have a main course Hot Arctic. In this group I study culture of Norway, importance of the border between Norway and Russia and etc. I think that it will me amazing gap year for me here.
Hi My name is Einar Gjerde and I am stipendiat on Hot Arctic. I finished my first year on Pasvik Folkehøgskole in 2017 on the course of hunting and fishing. This year I am working as a second year student (stipendiat) at the fantastic course Hot- Arctic. This is my little baby, because I watched it grow. I am so lucky to be a part of this project. I am interested in what is happening in the world and the northern part is very interesting and this course will focus on what we want to know of the politics and other social studies topics involving the northern part of the world.
The outdoor life is for me essential and Pasvik is then the place to be. The idea of connecting the big topics in the world with a night around the fire and experience in the nature is exiting. I am interested in politics, social studies, writhing, music and outdoor life. From the scout I got my outdoor interest, from my family and school band I got my music interest and from my family, friends schools and teachers…
