In a post that has attracted many likes, Awiti shared about living with HIV, being a mother to two beautiful daughters who’re both HIV negative and fighting stigma.
I am a 27-year-old woman, who has lived with HIV for 27 years.
Who started her ARVs eleven years ago.
Who has two children, both girls, that are HIV negative.
Who was once in a relationship with an HIV negative man, thus, the two HIV negative babies.
Who literally chose to create awareness on social media mostly, because young people have normalized HIV so much, and they are on social media and are largely infected by this virus.
I also happen to emphasize on you not pitying me.
I hate pity parties.
I say it like it is, unfiltered and so raw.
God happened to bless me with some humor, I blend it so well when passing my message to you people.
I believe that stigma and discrimination are still there, therefore, my slogan is a STIGMA FREE SOCIETY.
I love my African culture, which makes my second slogan; STRONGEST AFRICAN QUEEN.
I mean, because I am a Queen.
