From summertime to fall, I have been running the race to peace, love and understanding, which leads me and many others in the opposite direction from Stigma, Guilt and Shame. I have attended many conferences too, including the United States Conference on AIDS, where I spoke on stigma and how it stole one of the best things in life from me. However, through all of that, I still have HOPE where I Hold On Peacefully Everyday. I was nominated for the POZ 100 for 2016. I was featured in a story of triumph over pain on I was also nominated for the 2020 Leading Women's Society 2016. These are just a few things I have accomplished with my sisters as strong and empowered women.
