Does anyone remember this little girl? Hydeia was born with AIDS yet continues to strive and growing more beautiful each day. Here she is at the age of 26: I fell in love with her the moment I heard of her story, realizing how very wise she was for her young years as well as being abandoned by her biological parents. Not only am I thrilled to know that she’s still going strong… my buddy “T” just shot a link to me about how she’s doing and what she’s been up to [as a spokesperson and AIDS activist]. While life for her is not perfect (no doubt), she continues to keep moving forward– something I think ‘some adults’ can learn from. Click HERE to discover what her life has been like since her story was initially highlighted (I first saw her on Oprah) and how she continues to share her life with others. Here’s a PSA she put out for teens and young adults: Hydeia, dearest lady– you inspire me!!!
