STD/HIV Prevention and Outreach for the Tohono O'odham Nation, Tucson, Ariz.; Diagnosed in 2003
I would probably say, I'm most proud of meeting Kory Montoya. He was a Native American living with HIV and hepatitis C, and I heard him speak and how profound he was about it! He was one of those that I had a really good relationship with before he passed on. He was one of the first ones that I actually told my HIV status when I saw him in Phoenix. One day, we were taking a walk and I told him that, with him coming out and saying a lot of things, I told him what my status was. When he passed on, it hit pretty hard.
