What I do: LGBT activism with regard to HIV/AIDS and anti-bullying workshops

What I want to do: HIV/infectious disease research, government disease studies and viral engineering

Favorite food I’ve had in SA so far: slow-cooked chicken at Themba’s Chicken in Alexandra Township in Johannesburg, Gauteng.

Favorite place I’ve been to in SA so far: Table Mountain! The hike up was amazing, and remarkably refreshing.

Favorite late-night movie so far: Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain
