My Interview With an International Women's Website

July 3, 2013

I was very honored to be featured on Fanm Kanson Network. As many of my interviews are equally important, I get contacted through my activism page (as Maria HIV Mejia) on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and my blogs. Many ask me how I get to do these interviews, etc. Basically I am relentless in social media ... every day, no matter where I am and what I am doing. This gives me a presence in social media, and important campaigns, websites, radio, TV and magazines contact me.

I am very proud of this interview and I hope it helps many people get to know my thoughts a little bit more.

Soon I will be making a vlog with something I get asked constantly: "How can a person get more exposure and get their stories out there?"

Time to Show My Face and Take the Stigma Away


Maria T. Mejia

Maria T. Mejia

I am a 37-year-old Colombian female who lives in Miami, Florida. I've been positive for 20 years. Although almost all my life I've been in long-term relationships with HIV-negative men, I am happily married to a woman who is wonderful and caring. We have been together almost three years and she is HIV negative. I have no children but we will look into having! I am an activist, a peer educator, a caregiver. I volunteered for the Red Cross in education for the Hispanic HIV community and also the American community. I was a pre- and post-test counselor. I have spoken in many conferences and done a lot of outreach in the community, especially in the schools for prevention and education. It is part of my everyday life to educate everyone I can on this subject. Being HIV positive is nothing to be ashamed about! We are strong women, and we will take away all the stigmas slowly but we have to open up.
