My initiative I AM A BEAUTIFUL STORY is meant to create hope and awareness and also encourage people living with HIV that there is a beautiful life even after a HIV positive diagnosis. I am using my story of living with HIV to encourage other people living with HIV like me that HIV is a manageable health condition. What keeps me going is that one day I want to see a stigma free society and that starts with normalizing the HIV conversation in our daily lives.
