Pol became interested in music at a very early age, partly because his parents listened to it at their home nearly every day. He grew up playing soccer with his friends, and at one point wanted to go professional.
Pol didn’t become interested in acting until he enrolled at local high school in 2012, he joined its drama club, and appeared in various plays performed both at the school and a local theatre.
One of his teachers heard him sing for his peers, and encouraged Pol to pursue a career in the music industry.
