Ffjorren (pronounced “fe-or-en”) was born in Yankton, South Dakota. She was named after the Fjords in Norway. As her name was created specifically for her, it was given as a built-in stage name. Something that could break the ice from the very get go of her existence. The name means “Little princess of the Fjords.”
Her love for singing and acting began shortly after she was able to speak. It was said that she always had a knack for “dramatic speech” because her mother went into labor with her during a college English exam.
As a child, she would present musical and acting performances at home, casting her brothers for roles as well. When her family vacationed or visited relatives, the shows followed. She also created and recorded music videos and commercials for fun.
In fourth grade, Ffjorren was cast as Peter Pan in her class play. It was the highlight of her school year. She wore green tights and a green sweater from her own closet (as costumes were limited). The whole experience enlightened her. She had never felt as free or comfortable in her own skin. She felt at home on stage; Ffjorren truly connected to the world of entertainment.
