For my capstone I wanted to show that HIV has brought me very far in a positive way so I put together an HIV event bringing different organizations out to help talk about HIV and testing also care for HIV. I chose this project because being around people with HIV has had some positive and negative impacts in my life over the last few years. I have seen people older and in the medical field so unaware of HIV its sad so I wanted to educated the 9th and 10th. I felt like if I can start them out early in educating them then they will know what HIV is and will not have a lot stigma towards it. They will know how important getting tested is and getting care is. I wanted them to know that safe sex is really important now days because of all the STD’s that is in the world today also HIV is so big among 13-21 year olds. They needed to know how serious this issue was. It was important to me to talk the 9th and 10th grades about this because we are all around the same age group and I know they will be better off listing to me then just some stranger so that is really why I made it my place to have this event and bring the people out that I did.
