Simon lives with his uncle, who lives at Kisongo, this is because his parents live in Shinyanga, which is many miles away – near Lake Victoria. He was 18 years old in 2016. He has three younger sisters and one younger brother. He likes the sciences, particularly Chemistry, and enjoys playing football. He would like to be a doctor one day. In his Form Three Examinations in November 2015 he gained a Distinction (the highest level of pass). Simon is being sponsored by Pat & Chris Jones, whose two sons, Tom and Robert, were pupils at Acklam Grange School.
