Simeon is a friendly and bright 24-year-old from Nigeria. He is currently in school, studying to be an accountant.

Simeon has many talents; he loves to read, sing, and play basketball. The only thing getting in the way of these things is an abnormal growth on his right arm. The growth causes Simeon a lot of pain and immobility, but he can’t afford surgery to remove it.
