Hans-Christian Lindenhann (29): “People who know me accept me, because they know they can’t change me.”

Being almost 30, Hans-Christian is the oldest man I meet for my story. Finishing school and education in the small town of Aasiaat at the Disko Bay, he had to move to Nuuk in order to develop in his career as a nurse. Doing a further education in the hospital, he quickly realised that he is “more administrative”, as Hans-Christian puts it himself.

“I learned from my aunt that I must not respond to hatred, because if I cry – they will reach what they want by bullying me. So I just learned to ignore them…and the bullying stopped.” Only in his school years “Moku” (as his family members call him) has experienced exclusion.

Maybe because of his life-experience, Hans-Christian remains humble speaking about his further plans: “For now, I want to stay in Nuuk…I hope I can minimize the waitinglist of the hospital in 2017.”
