Alejandro is a veteran, leader in his local community and has lived with HIV for over 20 years. After losing many friends to AIDS-related illnesses in the 1980’s and 90’s, he felt lonely and isolated when he tested positive. Getting involved and volunteering helped Alejandro find meaning and happiness in his life again. “Living with HIV does not define who I am. Helping others does.”
