Kym


EMPOWERMENT
Friday - 1:30PM

Kym moved to Texas in 2005, where she met the man she would marry five years later.  Within the first year of their marriage he revealed that he was HIV positive and had known this for more than ten years. Kym immediately went to get tested, and her results were positive. Through her work with the Greater Than AIDS / Alicia Keys EMPOWERED campaign, she is passionate about ending the silence and shame that still too often surrounds HIV/AIDS.
