When Simbarashe was 2, he wanted to live next door to Elliott in E.T.
When he was 7, he made-believe that he was the star in all of his favourite films and a classmate named Kelly was his leading lady.
When he was 10, he got beat up a lot.
His 14th birthday was one of the most significant days of his life.
When he was 17, he completed his first full-length manuscript.
