Today we continue with one woman’s path to acceptance. This is part 4 of a 4-part series looking at one woman’s perspective on her HIV diagnosis. Check out PART 1 if you missed it!
I see a bright future for myself as an advocate for women who live with this virus. I also want to work with teens as well, and people that are not infected, to educate them about prevention. I see myself working with a whole lot of people who are not infected with the virus. I see myself earning my GED, and a Bachelor’s degree someday, and moving forward in life. I want to let people know there’s hope even during the storm, and they shouldn’t give up.
Making an impact:
First of all, making an impact is not about me. It’s about the lives of the people I influence; their joy, peace, happiness, hope, and change in their lives. I get joy from watching how I have helped lives change for the better.
