    Unconventional and Unfold

    Please help me check if I use these words correctly.

    1. unconventional: (ADJ): Different from what is usual OR from the way most people do things.

    EX
    A.) Sam has such an unconventional hairstyle which attract a lot of people to look at him.
    B.) The way Liam runs the business is unconventional, but it made him a self-made millionaire.

    2. unfold: (V): (of a situation or story) to develop or become clear to other people.

    EX
    A.) When Kian started going to backpack by himself in Europe, he did not realize how his journey would be unfolded.
    B.) When Jim had a fight with his manager, he did not know what was about to be unfolded.

    THANK YOU!

    I would delete such from a) as the natural thing to put after it is that.
    EX
    A.) When Kian started going to backpack by himself in Europe, he did not realize how his journey would be unfolded.
    B.) When Jim had a fight with his manager, he did not know what was about to be unfolded.
    I would put both of these into the active: would unfold/about to unfold.
