What is your 2018 theme song?
Sassy by Rapsody
Why do you do what you do?
I believe that knowledge is power. Through the Durham Knows Campaign I get to share the message of HIV Awareness, HIV Prevention, & PrEP with my city which has the potential to save & change lives for the better.
What is your #1 goal of 2018?
To lay a foundation with the campaign that reignites the community’s commitment to end HIV in Durham County.
Why do you love 2BeatHIV?
Through the innovative idea of crowd-sourcing, 2BeatHIV reminds us that to be of best service to our community we must first ask them what they need. By taking a bottom-up approach instead of top-down I believe we will see results much faster.
