In "Regret," Sincera Fritz shares her first, fearful encounter with a person living with HIV. She bravely describes her personal struggle with HIV stigma and is now an HIV prevention outreach worker and powerful advocate for people living with HIV. Sincera is from Chuuk, in the Federated States of Micronesia (one of the six US-affiliated Pacific Islander Jurisdictions).
This story and more are part of "Taking Root: Our Stories, Our Community," a national digital storytelling initiative to engage Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander communities in ending HIV stigma.

About Taking Root: It's been said that it takes a thousand voices to tell a single story. "Taking Root" is grounded in the power of the individual story, but its territory extends beyond the individual. We are a multitude of voices: there is no singular Asian American or Pacific Islander experience, and the face of HIV is as diverse as the people affected by it. Through the connections forged by these individual experiences, we are able to tell a story about the ways we are affected by HIV. Together, these stories heal and it is through the telling and witnessing of them that we learn to overcome our silence and shame. As "Taking Root" grows, it will eventually include stories from A&PI communities across the US and the six US-affiliated Pacific Island Jurisdictions.
These are true stories from A&PIs recounting the ways in which HIV has affected and altered their lives. The stories were developed during an intensive 3-day workshop facilitated by Center for Digital Storytelling and Asian & Pacific Islander Wellness Center. Storytellers are trained to produce their own story, from developing their own narrative and producing a voiceover, to using audiovisual and editing equipment to create the final video. "Taking Root" stories are promoted at community events nationwide and online through our social networks and partners.
