Redefining Strength in the Face of HIV’s Stigma with speaker, author, and dedicated health advocate Julie Lewis
In this inspiring episode, I’m joined by Julie Lewis, a courageous mother of three and an HIV-positive woman, who shares her remarkable journey of resilience and hope in the face of adversity. Julie’s story unveils the challenges she faced, not just from living with HIV but also from the societal stigma that surrounded the disease in the 1990s. Julie’s unwavering strength and her ability to see beyond her diagnosis are truly inspiring.
Julie’s life journey, from her initial diagnosis to becoming an advocate and educator, serves as an example of resilience and the power to turn personal adversity into a force for positive change. The conversation delves into the importance of empathy, compassion, and understanding in our society. In this episode we reflect on how prejudice and discrimination often stem from fear and lack of knowledge, and how important it is for people to engage with others who are different from them, to listen and learn to build a more inclusive and compassionate world.
