I am a teenager who lives in San Diego, CA and attended one of your lectures. I would just like to thank you for coming and speaking about your personal experiences with HIV. I think that you are an amazing person, because you were infected with HIV and you learned from your mistakes, and even with your misfortunes, you are still happy with your life. I dont know how you do it. I used to cut myself, and I saw a therapist that I lied to, and nothing worked for me…except your talk. I just wanted you to know that you helped one more desperate teenager on your quest to educate and help the teenagers of the world. I think you are an amazing person, and I admire your courage and your love of life. Thank you very much for talking about a hard subject.
