I have met Simon almost 7 years ago while I was in high school. The great opportunity at that time was
learning from the international trainers and their experience on how to build and maintain together the
community. Step by step we got closer to the subject of filmmaking, In this way it gave us the
opportunity to represent ourselves and show our contribution to the society we belong to. Simon has been
leading the group of young people by giving his great ideas and support in order to produce and harvest
the best pieces of our daily activity through the camera lens
