Doing this was very fun. I didn’t expect so many people to participate in my Agent of Change. So many people got involved and I was so happy. Even one of my friends from California got involved and got her friends to participate as well. I was effective in making a change because I got my word out there. I put a daily reminder on Snapchat (a popular social media spot) and put a memo in the advisory memo. I walked around the classroom and asked students personally to be apart of my change and teachers were involved as well. I feel very proud of the amount of people that got involved in my Agent of Change. I did doubt myself in the beginning of the day on my Agent of Change. But then when all of these students started walking in with red on and I got back-to-back notifications about hashtags that were being put up I stopped doubting myself and I felt really confident.
Hello. My name is Shyann Davis. In my last Blog Post I talked about what HIV/AIDS were. In this link it is just another summary of what I talk about. HIV/AIDS are a type of STD and STD stands for sexually transmitted disease. HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. And AIDS stand for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. You can get these sexually transmitted diseases by having sexual contact with someone. But something new I found was that HIV/AIDS are most likely found in teenagers because of using drugs, having constant unprotected sex, and mainly not getting tested to see if they have contracted the disease or not.
In this link it shows the impact of HIV/AIDS in the LGBTQ communtiy. I learned that every 1 and 6 gay or bisexual men are diagnosed with HIV. “Transgender women in certain communities have 49 times the odds of living with HIV. 19% of the LGBTQ population has HIV/AIDS but only a little bit of them tell others so that they can get treated. They are scared to tell others like their friends, family, and associates because of how they might react. Some people are homophobic, this means they dislike homosexual people. This is why part of the LGBTQ community if scared to tell others because they don’t want to be pushed aside because of their sexuality. Many of them don’t tell their friends or family members and that could cause the HIV/AIDS to get worse over time.
Gay, bisexual men, and transgender women show the highest in having HIV/AIDS in the LGBTQ community. The anti-LGBTQ group has discouraged many to not get tested. But when they did get tested they and they were found positive they were given poor treatment because of their sexual orientation. The LGBTQ gets very little funding so they can get a treatment for their HIV/AIDS. The only day of the year that lots of money and care is put into helping them get through the rest of their years is on December 1. This is the only time, and this was proven, when the LGBTQ community feels more comfortable coming out because they know that there are other people like them who are going through the same feelings they are.
The Los Angles LGBTQ Center gives each and every one of their patience the care that they deserve. This is one of the few qualified centers to treat the LGBTQ commuity. “We practice a holistic approach to treatment, helping clients manage all aspects of living with HIV, through counseling, nutritional advice, and support groups. Our Clinical Research Program offers clients the opportunity to participate in a number of clinical trials. In fact, no organization offers a wider range of specialized services for people living with HIV. In addition to physicians and nurses, our health staff includes social services caseworkers, mental health counselors, and a staff nutritionist. And our on-site pharmacy makes it easy and quick for you to fill and pick-up your prescriptions. We accept Medi-Cal, Medicare, most major insurance plans, and some HMOs. If you are uninsured, we can help you get insurance through Covered California or determine your eligibility for medical and drug assistance programs.” This is the summary for the center on their website. I searched for the best center but when I read this, I thought that this is a good helpful center for the LGBTQ communtiy because it doesn’t just give them the medicine and send them home, it also helps them get over drug abuse and medical assistance.
Hello, my name is Shyann Davis and I am going to Science Leadership Academy. For my You & The World project I want to speak on the topic of HIV/AIDs. HIV is also known as Human Immunodeficiency Virus and AIDs are known as acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. They are both transmitted through unprotected sex. This can be through anal and vaginal sex. Having oral sex isn’t very common to give someone HIV/AIDs but it is still strongly recommended to have protection and make sure you are checked to see if you have HIV/AIDs. This is a very serious topic that not many people know about. Some know much, but others know very little. Many people would feel uncomfortable talking about protection, sex, and the risks of unprotected sex, so my goal for this project is to spread awareness of HIV/AIDs so people can learn some of the risks of having unprotected sex.
An STD is a sexually transmitted disease that you can get from having unprotected or underprotected sex. HIV/AIDS are different types of STDs. HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. Over 1.2 million people that live in the United States have HIV or AIDS but only 156,300 don’t even know they have it. People from ages 13 to 64 are tested for HIV and AIDS only once, during a routine check up. 45,000 people are diagnosed, and 30% of them live with people who are undiagnosed. If someone is infected, they can get a treatment called “antiretroviral therapy”, or ART for short. This treatment clears away almost 96% of the transmitted HIV. Unfortunately, it doesn’t get rid of the disease completely, but it does slow it downes long enough to stop it from spreading with a combination of pills to eventually stop it from spreading. Knowing what HIV is is important because many people don’t even know what HIV/AIDS are. They thought that if they had sex with a person who had HIV/AIDS that they wouldn’t get it either. Some even thought having oral sex doesn’t give them HIV/AIDS but it can create many problems even if it’s at a very low risk. Making sure everyone is aware of what HIV/AIDS are and how to prevent them from happening, or if they already have them can learn the treatment is very important.
Having unprotected sex is one way to increase the risk of contracting HIV/AIDS. Another way would be sharing needles with someone. This means after someone has used a needle and you use it after them. This can higher the risk of getting other fattail infections as well. Some ways to decrease the risk would be abstinence. This means waiting a while before going into something. The longer you wait to have sexual intercourse, the less partners you have, and the less likely you will get HIV/AIDS. Other ways you can lower the risk is if you use a condom with lubricants, taking medicine to prevent HIV/AIDS, and simply getting tested to make sure you don’t have it. Knowing how the risk of getting HIV/AIDS can increase and decrease is very important. If someone is sexually active they need to know how to use protection and getting tested. If they don’t know this they have a great risk of passing or receiving HIV/AIDS. They need to know what they can do to prevent them from getting HIV/AIDS.
HIV/AIDS are spread through semen (the male reproductive fluid), breast milk, blood, vaginal and rectal fluids, and pre-seminal fluid (pre-cum). It is also spread by being with someone who has HIV/AIDS, sharing food with someone with HIV/AIDS, deep open mouth kissing, and touching broken skin. It is not spread by water or air, insects, sharing a toilet, touching your “social” kissing your partner, and sharing water fountains.
This is important to know so many people can prevent themselves from getting this. They can stay even safer than they are now. If you have ever had an open wound, someone else had an open wound, and they both touch, there was a chance you could have gotten HIV/AIDS. People need to know this information. Like if someone doesn’t know that oral sex could get you HIV/AIDS because they didn’t know it could be transferred through rectal and vaginal fluids. This is very important.
AIDS are known as acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and just like HIV they are a type of STD. It is a late stage of HIV. Just like for HIV, AIDS have no cure but the same treatment as any STD. If someone has AIDS their body is much too weak to be immune to the disease because this STD has already destroyed your immune system.It is good to know about this because then you can know both about HIV and AIDS and not just one. Knowing about the different side effects of AIDS and what it can do is just as important as knowing the side effects of HIV. These types of STD are very similar, but have very different consequences.

Hello, my name is Shyann Davis. I made my Me magazine based on only a few things but I hope you can see it. I have based it on line, value, color, and rhythm. With line I lined all of my pictures together to it could look pleasing to the eyes and not to everywhere and confusing. With value I kept it simply black and white to be, well simple. But I didn’t just want the same black and white color so I put some lighter blacks and more brighter or dirty whites. The color I wanted was black and white but I also wanted pop to it so I added a bit of color by adding the question mark. And lastly I wanted rhythm, but also wanted to mess with the rhythm. I wanted the rhythm to be the same but have one difference in my pattern.What I would change is maybe the way I put my project all together. The pictures along the side could be done a lot better. But overall I really like it and I hope you all enjoyed it as well.
This is a video about a teacher and her students. The students don’t know how to say the spanish alphabet so she makes a beat to help them.
