After an essay submission and countless phone interviews, I am happy to announce that I’ve been chosen as the California State
Representative to attend the Campaign to End Aids Summer Youth Action Institute in Chicago. HIV/AIDS activists from all over the country will convene in Chicago for four days of advocacy and media training to be a force for change in the fight to end AIDS.
This will be my first event involving my new passion for GLBT/HIV/AIDS activism. I think it’s amazing how doors open for you once you let go and allow yourself to walk in your true purpose. And to think all it took for me to accept my calling was watching Oprah’s dvd collection, Keith Boykin’s influence and a lot of prayer!
