Born into severe racial tensions, gentrification, violence, and drugs, Shyronn Jones had a lot to deal with in her early years. Not wanting to add unplanned pregnancies and STDs to the list, she abstained from sex until the age of eighteen. Losing her virginity, then discovering she acquired HIV at the age of twenty-two, caused her ongoing hurt throughout her life. Still she's found the strength to persevere, cherish and educate her children, and become an advocate for people living with HIV and a trainer to those seeking a deeper understanding of the condition.
