I am 28. White. A Female. And a former Peace Corps Volunteer. I am HIV Positive. This is my story of how a few months, a few people, and a few events in Zambia changed me and my life forever. This is the story of how I contracted HIV and brought my Peace Corps Journey to a crashing halt... and how I am working now to pick up and put back together the pieces of my life as a newly diagnosed person living with HIV. This was not the journey I had originally planned... my path has traumatically and dramatically changed... but it is the one I am on now. There is no going back. There is only forward. I welcome you to follow along with me as I attempt to explore this new life ahead of me, whether you are someone from the Peace Corps community, or someone living with HIV. I welcome your comments, questions, suggestions, and opinions. Let us go forward together. To start from the beginning, click here He Gave Me More Than A Bracelet.

Test Your Knowledge About HIV/AIDS!

I've been interested in somehow putting an HIV Quiz on my blog for awhile now, but haven't quite had the time to research into how I could/would do that. So, instead, I am going to give you some links to some already existing quizzes. These are really fun (at least to me), and it can be interesting to see how much you do (or do not) know about HIV. So, here we go!

AVERT's Quizzes
These are pretty fun! They have HIV and AIDS, Sex Education, Pregnancy, and Condom Quizzes. Each answer is supported with additional information and resources. You can even choose varying levels of difficulty- Easy, Medium, or Hard!

TheBody.com HIV/AIDS Quiz
A 10 question multiple choice and true/false quiz about HIV.

About.com HIV/AIDS Quiz
Choose from Easy, Medium, Hard, or Very Hard!

Compassion.com HIV/AIDS Quiz
Complete one question at a time, each answer is followed with factual information, statistics, and resources. These questions are related more towards Global HIV/AIDS and children affected by HIV/AIDS.

PBS.org The Age of AIDS
Okay, this one is definitely a bit tricky (and possibly a bit outdated?). I realized after taking it, that you are supposed to watch their video "Frontline: The Age of AIDS" first. Oops, that probably would have helped :-)


  1. I used Avert quizzes with my students as an TEFL teacher in China - they had lots of fun learning that way, and I would discuss the answers with the whole class. If you know people teaching about HIV/AIDS you could poll to see which resources they like best.
