Nozandulela Samela

Nozandulela Samela is 20 years old and lives in Mithcell's Plain at her aunt and uncle's house (4 rooms with a shack in the back) with nine other relatives, including her 7 month old son. She was infected with HIV by her baby's father, who knew he was positive, but did not tell her. She grew up without her mother and lived with many different people until settling with her aunt and uncle. She graduated from high school but has had no money to continue her education.

Nozandulela wanted to photograph her home and neighborhood, including her aunt and uncle who agreed to being photographed and welcomed project participants into their home.

I think it's wonderful that this young woman has such supportive family around her who were so willing to participate in the project with her. What a blessing to her in such a difficult time.

I want to be alive when the cure comes. Whatsoever there is that tries to stop me, I will jump over it. Nothing can stop me.

I would like the world to see the love that I have for my grandmother and the life we share together.
