The judges, who included Bizzu, Anneloes Vertsteeg from Netherlands and Nyakoojo Micheal, easily noticed Kasabiti’s confidence and determination.

“She is a real role model and a true ambassador in the fight against the spread of HIV,” said Bizza.
Kasibati got to know her HIV status when she was 10 years old. She was led by a healthy village trainer to a health facility where she was diagnosed HIV positive. Ever since that day her life has changed.
She says her conception about the dreaded disease changed. She no longer looked at an HIV positive diagnosis as being synonymous with a suspended death sentence, as she used to believe before.
“I faced a lot of stigma from my school mates to an extent of desiring to commit suicide but when i got the right counselling I have since copied up with the stigma, and I am living positively with the virus” she stresses.
This has made her a good activist against stigma and discrimination relating to HIV, and she decided to go public about her HIV status in order to de-stigmatize the community about HIV/AIDS.
“The struggle against HIV/AIDS will never succeed without addressing stigma. I have personally suffered external stigma and I know that stigma can be more lethal than the HIV virus,” she says.
As for Mugera, he has lived with HIV for the past 13 years. He got to know about his HIV status in 2002 after a health community trainer talked to them during one of the outreaches organized by YAWE in their town council, He was enrolled on treatment and has been adhering on this treatment very well.
He has embarked on a nutritious diet and has always turned up for his counselling appointment with his counsellors.
