I was in a 10 year relationship that ended when I was 27 years old.
Three months after the break up I found out that I had contracted HIV.
I have never been ashamed of the woman I am, but I lived a pretty normal life living with HIV.
My daughter who was 6 years old when i was diagnosed is now 23 and she has known that her mother has had HIV since she was 8 years old.
I just recently disclosed my status to my 13 year old daughter five months ago and that’s when I decided to let the world know that HIV still exists.
I started forming a nonprofit organization over a year ago called Poz Haven Foundation to help women and children in Nigeria who have contracted HIV/AIDS I want to give love, hope and care to them, who would otherwise be stigmatized and pushed to the side because of their status.
I was depressed for months and soon realized that I can’t let HIV beat me and that I had to beat HIV.
I moved on with my life and was married two years later to a man who was negative.
I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl who is now 13 years old and was born negative due to the ARV’s I was taking.
I never hid my HIV status from family and friends and never made it a secret.
Poz Haven Foundation is a work in progress, but I’m almost there.
My love and my heart is very open to anyone who needs me.
I have recently posted two videos on Facebook, You Tube, Instagram, Google, and twitter letting the world know that I am HIV positive.
