The Living Positive Experience

Joanna Newcome was an intern at Living Positive, and this is her experience.

While my time with Living Positive may have been short, the lessons and memories I have gained are gifts that will forever keep giving. The ladies of the program are a true testament that HIV does not have to be a life sentence. They are living proof that when given a chance, success can be a reality. Mary gave me some very poignant advice while at LPK, “Never do anything you don’t enjoy.” While at Living Positive, I learned what I truly enjoy: putting smiles on people’s faces! I may not understand Kswahili, but I will always understand the meaning of a smile. I pray the strong, warm hearted, talented women of Living Positive keep on fighting, striving, but most importantly smiling! I can’t wait to return and see their continued growth.
