Loving Ourselves Through Unity & Strength
We Are LOTUS
A member of LOTUS created this video to offer a few encouraging words.
Who We Are
"I have the ability to rise from the mud, bloom out of the darkness, and radiate into the world and not be afraid."
"I stepped into the limelight to show he world that Black women are living & thriving with HIV. I advocate to show women that there is life after their diagnosis."
"It's important to me that no other woman experience the dark loneliness of shame or live in fear that she can't live her Best Life after a diagnosis of HIV. Community over isolation."
"I'm here to inspire hope that you can live a fulfilling life, while also living out your dreams. There is a great life available after an HIV diagnosis."
"I advocate to positively impact the lives of others just like me who live and thrive with HIV/AIDS."
"After my diagnosis in 2010 it was very important for me to let other women know that there is life after HIV. For God has not left you nor forsaken you."
"Today I love me. Love yourself first and remember that this is not a death sentence. We are living today."
"Like a LOTUS flower, God has graced me with the blessing to grow and bloom through every trial into the beautiful woman I am today."
"After living with HIV since 1993 I chose to advocate and show newly diagnosed women and men that HIV is not a death sentence."
