Conversations with Strangers: Renean from South Africa

How we met: Long story short, I moved into my apartment a little early and my new room was occupied by a wonderful girl from The Netherlands who had her friend visiting. Basically, Renean and I got to be roommates for a whole three days.

About him: Renean is South African, but resides in The Netherlands. He speaks fluent English, Dutch and Afrikaans.  When we first met I was tempted to recreate the scene from Mean Girls where Karen asks Lindsey Lohan, “So if you’re from Africa, why are you white?” 

Coolest experience: Going 185 mph on his motorcycle in Germany on the Autobahn.

Life dream: Renean would like to become an entrepreneur and has a lot of ideas for businesses that don’t yet exist. He would also like to become a sommelier, which is basically someone who gets paid to drink wine. I fully support that.

My very first South African friend, I feel so global.
