One of my students recently moved to South Africa for a while and in hope of inspiring him and other youth in the teen media program, I went searching for good audio from Africa. I found Thembi Ngubane.
South Africa has the largest number of people with HIV/AIDS in the world, Thembi is one of them. For more than a year, she carried a recorder and shares an account of her struggle with AIDS. She is so strong in her willingness to share her story.
