My Early Years -- and Why I Am Sharing Them

By Ellisya

Now everyone can read a lot more about me as a young girl in's Women's Resource Center. I am sharing this story as a part of my journey struggling as an HIV-positive woman and mother, and even way before the disease came into my body.

At least the audience or even the reader will have a clearer picture of who I am and how I have been raised in this country, Malaysia. Life pushes us to the brink of life and having HIV DOES NOT determined how that life will be. In fact for me, HIV is the best thing that ever happened to me; it makes me feel grateful about life and about people outside my country.

Live Life Like You Were Dying



I live in Malaysia with my daughter, Trisha. We both tested HIV positive in 2001, when I was 21 and she was 6. In a world that's full of ignorant people, life is about fighting and fighting all the time. I am here to share about my life: about being an orphan, a young mother at age 16 and a survivor of rape, hoping that everyone can learn from my real life experience.
