Every weekday our reporter and photographer pick a casual passer-by off the street for a nice conversation. Want everyone has a story. And certainly in Antwerp. Today: Aiden Verschueren (27).
“My previous hair color was blue, now I have green and the next color has already been determined. That will be a thermo color. For example, you color your hair green and when it is warm, that color changes to yellow. It comes in different colors. For a long time I just had my own color, but I thought that was too basic. Basic is out of fashion for me.”
“These colors also make me happy. Life is simple enough already. Everyone has their own backpack, I have a big one myself, but I always try to shudder back out of the pit and be happy. That’s been working out really well for me lately. I have been living with my younger sister for a few years now. She carries a similar backpack of life. Living with your sister is better than with a friend of a sweetheart. You can say anything to each other and allow each other more.”
“We also have the same hobbies and interests. We play games together, draw or watch stupid programs like Blind Married Australia. That version has more drama than the Belgian one. When we draw it is anime with a lot of fantasy. I am also currently training to become a childminder. I would like to become a drawing teacher in primary school. Children are still full of imagination and I am very happy with that. I love it when a species comes to me and says: I have a secret, I can actually do magic. Delicious.”
