First Lady Michelle Obama Speaks to the USDA


A Video Blog

By Justin B. Terry-Smith

May 5, 2013

I haven't told anyone, but I had to take a break from school. So I'll be going back in June hopefully. I injured my foot so I couldn't play kickball anymore, and I just had to take a break from a lot of things. I even took a leave of absence from my motorcycle club, The Centaurs. A Masters in Public Health takes a lot of time and work.

Watching and listening to Michelle Obama gave me a sense of pride and appreciation for the hard work she puts in everyday. She truly inspired me to keep going. One of her many goals are more nutritional food in school lunches for children in general. I find that goal admirable. I think she is amazing.

Public Health is very important to me. Food has a lot to do with Public Health. One of the courses I took was environmental health, and it truly goes with what I do now. I needed to see her speak to realize that what I do matters and it helps motivate me to be the best I can be in Public Health.

Justin B. Terry-Smith may be one of the most public African Americans living with HIV: He has his own blog and Web site, and he's even on YouTube. And who can blame him? Only 30, he already has an incredible story to tell. Justin admits he used to live "a very dangerous life," but since his diagnosis three years ago, the former heavy drinker and drug user has turned his life around.
