Why him? What makes him so special? Why do you travel around just for him?
He's name is Isac Elliot. He is a Finnish artist. I heard about him the first time 14.2.2013 when i was in sixth grade, when my teacher put a song called New Way Home playing in the class. When i heard the song i thought "wow this is amazing".
When i came home i started to look after the song on YouTube and i found it. I had the song on replay like the whole day, it was so good. After that day everything changed.
I saw Isac for the first time in May 2013, when it was a school event in Esbo. He walked past me and i remember how shaky i was, i guess i was so in shock that i didn't get the camera in my hands and take a picture hahaha.
The second time that i saw him was at Powerpark 9.11.2013 when he had a gig there.

Now 3 years later, i'm still here. I'm still here to support him. I never left his side. I have seen him grow up to a talented young man. And i'm so grateful for being a part of this "journey"!
Isac is not like any other artist, it's something special about him. He is so down to earth kind of person, he always got time for his fans and he has a heart of gold. I appreciate him so much because he is always himself and tries not to be anyone else. And on stage he can be himself, he jokes around all the time and he has fun. When Isac is happy, i'm happy.
I just love his concerts, on his concerts i get a different feeling than on other concerts, it's a very special feeling that i can't explain.
I may not be the girl Isac recognizes and remembers. I may not be the girl who got the chance to go to every place where Isac is, for example his studio and radio stations. My parents don't always let me go everywhere. Everyone is like "You don't do anything for that you would see Isac, if you would, you would be anywhere where Isac is" That just isn't so easy. I live in Vaasa so it's quite far away and it's 5h by car to Helsinki and the train tickets to Helsinki costs 5o €. I just don't have the money to go everywhere. If i would have the money or if i would live near Helsinki i would go see him all the time. I'm just afraid that if i would go all the way to Helsinki when i know he has studio day or some, i would not see him. Like, if there is many fans and he is busy on just that day when i would be there, he maybe wouldn't notice me and i would have come to Helsinki just in vain. It's just so difficult for me to meet him that often. I always do my best and i work so hard so i just could see him. I have done so many sacrifices for him. People has said "do something for that you could see Isac more often, it's up to you" it's easy to say, but not that easy to do. People don't really know how much work i have done for just this boy. I hope that people would understand how important he is for me and how important it is for me to see him. He means the world to me and there is no other artist that i admire more than Isac. Isac is an amazing person and he is one of those few people who really makes me happy.
My heart hurts a little bit when i know that Isac doesn't know me, he doesn't know my name or anything. I'm just another fan in his eyes. I just hope that he would recognize me someday. I want him to know that he is so important to me and he really has helped me with his music. Just seeing him makes me the happiest.

I have got to know so many new people just because of concerts and mostly Isac. Like almost all of my friends are some people that i have got to know bc of concerts. Some of those people are now my best friends. It's so fun to get new friends and it's nice to have someone to talk to about concerts and stuff if your other friends don't like concerts haha :D.
I have so many memories from gigs and i am so grateful for every moment. Did you guys know that going on concerts reduce stress? It's actually true. When you're at a gig, you can just forget all the bad things and just enjoy the gig and just have fun with your friends and dance and jump and scream as much as you want!
This all is gonna end someday. I am afraid of that day when i'm not gonna see Isac again. I don't want that. The reason why i want to see him so often that i just can, is that i think everyday that soon all this is over. Maybe soon he is moving to LA and he is not coming back to Finland anymore. Maybe soon he is gonna be at The Ellen Show and he becomes a superstar all over the world. I want to see him as much as i can cause' he is the same age as me and we are still young and i can't believe that soon me and Isac are 18 years old and ugh i just can't. It has been so fun to go to concerts with my friends and to see new places, i would have not go to so many places if it wouldn't have been for concerts. I have slept in a cold tent just queueing to concerts. I don't want this to end.
I have been traveling around on Isac's concerts and i even have been to Oslo just to see him perform there. I know that there's people that travels around on _every_ concert in Finland and there's people who go to different countries to see him. I'm not the person who got the chance to go _everywhere_ but i'm still happy that i get to do this and i wanna thank my mom for everything she has done for me and for this "hobby" i have and how she always been there for me and she even came to Norway with me cause' she knows how important Isac is to me. Thank you mom, you're the best.
Remember, money can't buy happiness but it can buy concert tickets. And that's better.
Thank you Isac for everything you have done! You are such an amazing person and i just wanna thank you for bringing so much happiness into my life! You were so little when i saw you for the first time and you have grown so much under these years. You have a huge talent and i'm just so so proud of you!!♥ I am gonna support you, no matter what happens! I hope we'll meet soon again, i really miss you.
