Yolanda Tsini

Yolanda Tsini is 25 years old and lives in Khayelitsha in a shack with no electricity or water. She lives with her boyfriend and their child. She found out that she was HIV positive in April of 2005. Her boyfriend knows her status but her parents don't because they live in the Eastern Cape and she hasn't been back since her diagnosis and doesn't want to tell them over the phone.

Yolanda wanted to be in this project to have a memory of her life to show to her family and friends.

If you tell people you're positive, they stop seeing you and just see the disease.
