e Moon watches over our nights and the Sun oversees our days, Simon has actively given me unimaginable guidance adding impetus to my development and growth as a writer. Our interactions included sharing poetry video lessons, inspiring works of art, introduction to Paul Celan and Gustav Freytag’s literature works, this enhanced my creativity. For me it is an experience that has grown positivity, hope and hard work in my life and I am so grateful to the GlobalMatch-team, that introduced me to such a listening and inspiring person.” – Frederick about his experience with Simon

All this has changed ever since you gave me this opportunity. With Simon’s mentorship, I have learnt to appreciate myself more and always look for knowledge and apply it in my works. Every day I wake up I go through my days with hope and faith, thanks to
