This is me.
I have a happy disposition.
That’s why I’m dancing in the sunlight.
I chose to photograph myself using a shadow.
It is an outline of me.
Because the first time we meet someone new we only know an outline of a person.
It takes time to know someone in depth.
So yeah, let me show you who I am because there’s a lot to me not just HIV.
I am resilient, resourceful, energetic, kind, adventurist, happy, diligent and trustworthy.
