Because of this, when I first learned about the Legislative Fellows Program run by Partners of the Americas, I was doubtful of the impact that this program could have in my personal and professional life, since I'd already “lived the American experience”.

I am from Bolivia and I have been living with HIV since 2000.  I am the National Chair of the Bolivian Network of People Living with HIV and AIDS (REDBOL), which remains the strongest HIV advocacy organization. In October 2014, thanks to the Legislative Fellows Program supported by the State Department and with the administration of Partners of the Americas, I did my fellowship at AIDS United, an HIV organization based in Washington, D.C. that focuses on domestic policy-making in the United States.
