What about you? What do you do? Your education background?
I am a 15 years old Norwegian secondary school student living in the suburbs of Oslo, Norway, so I have no premier education. I have had several small jobs, like paperboy, social media marketer and book reviewer.
Next summer I am starting at high school, and I hope I can get in at the Law & Business studies. My dream is first to work hard as an attorney, then to start my own business, maybe in the Law or Financial sector.
Wow, that’s impressive. Do you have any social media accounts people can look you up at?

Describe GrowSocial in 50 words or so.
GrowSocial helps you get more followers on your Twitter and Instagram account, and more likes on your Facebook page. The app is perfect for small business owners, or people who want to become an internet celebrity.
On GrowSocial, you can create a campaign for your Twitter user, Instagram user or Facebook page. A campaign is the user/page you want to promote. To avoid getting biased followers and likes, you can set criteria for the audience you want to promote your campaign to.
People will start following/liking your campaign because you give away coins. You choose how many coins you want to give away when you create your campaign. You can for example give away two coins to each new follower.
Any other Apps similar to yours?
Instaliker and a few other apps offer the same service for Instagram, but they don’t offer the same service for Facebook and Twitter.
List for us links from which we can download the app
Why should people download your App?
Either if you are a business owner who want to promote your business, or a normal person who wan’t to be noticed on the social networks, this app is the only one on the AppStore which can help you.
