In 2014, I landed in Cape Town thanks to a generous journalism fellowship. It was my first exposure to Africa’s AIDS epidemic. The trip not only changed my perspective on many things, including sex work, but also helped me develop AIDS as one of my beats. It was a life-changing experience, to say the least.
And, now, here’s my latest piece
