Mariana Iácono

Mariana Iácono, 28
HIV positive 9 years as of December 2010
Buenos Aires, Argentina

I am Mariana Iácono, from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I'm a social worker and student of history. I love swimming in the sea if there are no jellyfish. I love reading and practicing sports. I work in education at two high schools and I'm also an HIV/AIDS activist with RAMVHIS (Network of Women Living With AIDS). I'm a member of Fundación Buenos Aires SIDA and I represent them in an INADI (National Institute Against Discrimination) forum. I have a mother and a father who are lovely, really lovely; a female dog who is my daughter; and a love who fills my heart. Living with HIV, at this stage of my diagnosis -- nine years ago, I'm 28 -- is not a problem anymore. Every day, I fight against the stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV.
