In Her Own Words...
"My name is Alexandra Marie Backstrøm. I was born in Oslo, the capital of Norway, the 18th of June 1988. I’m the oldest of three siblings. I’m very adventurous and left the nest at an early age. I started my modelling career at 14, and have since lived in both Germany and the U.K. While modelling I also studied Archaeology at the University in Oslo, and I’m currently studying Journalism.
Norway is a country of huge contrast, from the tallest mountaintops to the deepest fjords – the cold and icy north to the warm and sunny south. I’m a woman of huge contrast as well, and I believe myself to be a worthy Miss Norway. I love travelling, but I also love the comfort of my home and family. Staying in and reading is one of my favourite activities, but I also love watching Soccer games and I might very well be the loudest one there. I can spend hours in a quiet gallery or museum, and the next day I’ll be rocking it out at a rock concert.
It’s an honour to be representing my beautiful country in the Miss World contest, I’m sure I will make both friends and memories for life in Indonesia."
