I am a male from South Africa. I am 19 years old and graduated from Rhondebosch boys' High School last december. I have huge talent in poetry and creativity. I have my own large collection of poems and I am busy planning my first book. I am interested in martial arts, rugby, horse riding, psychology, philosophy and adventure. I am very free spirited, open minded and I do not limit myself to a short sighted mindset. I am extremely thorough in my work and I hate disappointing others, regardless of their relationship with me. Any price is negotiable and projects from overseas will have an advantage because of the exchange rate between South Africa and pretty much anywhere else. I look forward to any contact. Thank you. Gino Ps. I have past essays which I would gladly email as a reference of my skill.
