Jacob Yousif: Matteo, my MinPin mix, and I heading back from the dog park. It was a great day to be alive. Thankful for my pooch, my life, and the sense of purpose that’s come into my life since my diagnosis. Currently, I work in HIV prevention and sex education for youth. I’m grateful that I get to work with so many others in the fight against HIV—and to share my story with youth, giving them a happy, healthy, unashamed face to associate with HIV.
