My name is Laverne Malcolm. I have been a client of PASAN since 2010, and a member of the Confluence Arts Collective theatre group since 2019. I have participated in many activities and programs around HIV/AIDS, and done many presentations around Visioning Health. I’ve faced many battles with plenty of addictions, which I have managed to control. I am proud of myself for the battles I’ve managed to conquer, and I have become a big supporter around Outreach plus Harm Reduction. As of May 2022, I am now employed, sober, and proud of what I’ve conquered and accomplished. I can stand alone and be strong for myself.
