We were highschool mates, Zur has uncanny ability when it comes to creativity, I remember he saved me from getting a failed grade by letting me contribute on small craft project, we were just 16 then, but he was able to make a miniature mansion Yes those types that you see in a showroom when you attend one of those real estate conventions. He was the one who opened my eyes to the wild outdoors camping,trekking mountaineering.
15 years has passed and we meet again, only this time there's something new. He has a skin condition called vitiligo: the depigmentation in parts of the skin. In other words, patches lacking the original skin color develop all over the body. This caused him from jumping from one work to another. " whilst at work there was a foreign guy who said I'm a cow" - Zur said
The moment I laid eyes on Zur I already noticed it but tried to maintain eye contact throughout.Never let the eye wander towards his physical “abnormalities”. Currently he is working as a freelance Film staff, and soon enough he will produce and direct his own film.
" My skin is not a normal sight, I’m so proud of my skin I stand for making no changes. I’m not for or against anything other than being happy.” - Zur
Today Zur has made a conscious decision to celebrate his skin as it is, his skin might have changed over the years but the furious passion on film and Media still rages on.
To those people who think and feel they're different, Let's celebrate! it only means you are special, you are not born to fit in, because you're born to stand out.
