Camila

Camila is 14 years old and dreams of being a photographer. Both of her parents passed away from AIDS and she lives with her grandmother and younger brother. Her family receives support from Reencontro and her grandfather who lives in South Africa.

Camila was interested in photography before taking part in The House Is Small, and learned how to take photographs from family friends. She learned more photographic skills from the project, such as how to hold the camera steady and work with light. She has also learned to express messages through her photography.

Disclosing my HIV status was the biggest difficulty of my life. My mother has lost so many people to the virus and always said that she didn't want any of her children to have this disease.
