Marcela Alsina, 45
HIV positive 15 years as of December 2010
Buenos Aires, Argentina
I am from a beautiful city, the city of Mar del Plata, with the best sunshine on the sea and gorgeous nights under the stars. Life led me through the path of activism and that's how I became an activist, feminist and human rights advocate. I believe in mutual respect. I'm not afraid of life; I travel to places with light, shadows and at times darkness, in order to be with friends, who are the most wonderful present I have. I have been angry at life many times, but over the years, we've become friends; we got to know each other little by little and today I can say that I'm happy!
