Kalim Nikau Bennet-Simeon

Graduate M.A.T.C.H Intensifier “Rua”

I am a hard-working individual that likes to help others in need with basically everything. Making people laugh is what I’m good at, nice to see people laugh.

The best part of M.A.T.C.H was meeting all the new people, their positive energy and personality was a blast. This was an awesome experience.

I love 3D modelling, creating anything with teeth and claws is my passion. Hence gaming is one of my main hobbies, not because of the stories and mechanics, but by their designs.

The 3 Bridges

The ‘3 Bridges’ is a pūrakau set in Kawakawa and Moerewa. In this story a giant serpent-like beast known as a Taniwha uses the rivers as a hunting source for unwary travellers!

Inspired by stories told by Kalims grandmother and grandfather.
