“I think Kimonos are really beautiful and they really suit me. As a child I thought I was Chinese in a previous life, I was the designer of a sewer system. I had never read books about China. As a child they often asked me where I came from, I always answered that I used to be a Chinese and therefore have these eyes. “

Because Ian does not have enough energy for things he prefers to do, he games a lot. That takes little effort. For the photo we waited until he was really in the game. Moving his feet with what happened on the screen.

"Shall I look outside through the window?" I said that of course it was okay if he liked to look outside. "I actually never look outside, but I thought it was fun for the photo."

Mother and son are two of a kind and take good care of each other. Ian likes to cook for himself and his mother. His latest creation was pasta with rice, beans with tomato sauce and fried egg. An interesting but surprisingly tasty combination according to the two.

“Many people ask if I am a rock star because of my clothes and long hair. I often speak English with my mother. "

“I really like my long hair, it's just me. I also like it because it makes me feel more feminine. I preferred being man and woman at the same time, just like the son of the Greek god Hermes. ”

If the noise from outside becomes too much for him, Ian prefers to hide under his duvet to shut himself off from the world. That doesn't really help either, but at least gives him the feeling that he is doing something about it.

Ian also does not leave the house very often because he cannot dress the way he wants to, people would react on that and ask him questions. Whether they are vintage tracksuits or dresses, he wears it with conviction and flair.

The table is in the middle of the house as a sort of partition. At the back Ian has his own living room next to his bedroom. There are also the kitchen and the shower. They hardly ever sit at the table. If he had enough energy they would probably play board games, Ian thinks.

The answer to the question how he is doing is actually always the same. "Tired." When I ask him what he did this week, the answer is "trying to rest."

In the unlikely case they would ever get another house and he was totally rested and therefore had energy, Ian would love to become a designer. With the money he is going to earn with that, he will help people. Especially children who are in a similar situation to himself.

He would still enjoy living together with his mother, but much more spacious with a large shared space and a spacious private place for both.

Ian sleeps in a mermaid tail. Usually not under the covers because he is often too hot. The window is always 

open and the heating always off. Even in the winter.
