Minas

I saw him walking my way on Yonge Street in downtown Toronto and my Human Family project alarm bell rang immediately. I knew he would make a good subject so I stopped him and explained my request. He listened politely, looked at my contact card, and was happy to participate. We were on a busy sidewalk so I posed him alongside the window of a fast food restaurant and explained my simple need: to look directly into the lens of my camera. Meet Minas.

As I was photographing Minas, a former client of mine from years past stopped to say hello and give me a quick update on his upcoming move. Minas and I completed our photos and exchanged contact information. I learned that he is 19 and is a full time university student studying Economics and Marketing. I said Business sounded like a wise choice because (in my opinion, at least) it could lead to a good income. He smiled and said “I hope you’re right about that.” When I asked about his interests outside of business he said he is interested in film-making, poetry, and philosophy. My eyebrows must have shot up an inch. “You don’t sound like any Business major I’ve ever met.” He smiled and explained “My parents have always encouraged me in the direction of being well-rounded and I’ve tried to listen to them.”

Minas was born in Eritrea in East Africa. He left Africa with his family when he was 10 and they lived in Washington D.C. for a couple of years before coming to Canada when he was 12. When I asked him if he could share a challenge he has faced in life and he thought for a moment before replying “Staying focused.” He told me he finds it easier to start projects than to finish them and that following-through is an important thing to master. I think this is a more common problem for people with multiple interests and talents like Minas, because there is always something just around the corner capturing their interest. When I invited him to share a message with the project he gave a friendly laugh and said “Boy, you really get right to the meat of the matter don’t you?” His message was “Don’t judge others. People have lots of great hidden qualities you would never imagine.” He went on to give an example: “For instance, a retired fellow who has an interest in others and isn’t afraid to walk up to strangers on the street, meet them, and find out about them.” We both laughed.

Thank you Minas, for participating in my project. It was great meeting you. You are my 557th submission to The Human Family Group on Flickr.
