This is my story

It was in the cold winter of 2020 when I first heard I was HIV positive. It wasn’t only that, when I was diagnosed, I was on the late stages of AIDS.”

This is how Maya’s incredible story begins. It continues with gratitude and positivity and the remarkable decision of being open about her HIV diagnosis.
