Flying to the North Island..have a great weekend (photo's)
« on: December 06, 2007, 03:38:25 PM »
Flying out to the North Island in a couple of hours to attend my last board meeting of the year and to do a photo shoot for the "Destigmatization Campaign" we finally got the funding for, so by Febuary next year we are hoping to flood the main hospitals, clinics and larger Medical centers all over the major cities in NZ with our posters and brochures.

In all my time here in NZ I have never seen any information regarding stigma and discrimination in relation to HIV in any of the hospitals or clinics I have spoken at ..hell there is very little information of any kind....hence the reason this campaign was started.

Who would have thought I would be a "Poster Girl" at my age.... :D

Anyway, I will be back on Monday..so have a great weekend ..and behave yourselves.. ;)

Hugs
Jan :-*

Hi Guys

Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words.

The weekend went well, and we were all so spoilt ,we had a make up artist and hairdresser waiting for us when we arrived.

We were a little bit nervous about the shoot but the photographers made us feel comfortable and relaxed..and I didn't realize just how hard it was to talk on camera, but the interviewer who is doing the documentary was very patient with me, and she assured me she would edit all the ummm's and errr's out.. :D

The hardest part was trying not looking at her when she was asking me question, it's a lot harder to do than it sounds.

Added a couple of photo's just to let you see how things went.

Hugs
Jan :-*

Hi Jan!

You look lovely in those photos - and I like your boots too. ;)

I hope you post the finished posters and can link us to the interview. I'm really looking forward to seeing it.

I can totally relate to the umms and ahhs. I worried about it more when I did the live radio interview than I did with the Stephen Fry interview because I knew that would be edited. For the radio thing, before we went on air the presenter told me that if I got stuck, to just wave my arms around. I had visions of me waving through the whole interview, but I only had to do it once.

Again, I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished product. :)

Hugs,
Ann

Hi Jan,

Well congratulations on another successful year!  It's amazing seeing how much you've done since I've been a member.  I'm glad I've had the pleasure of not only calling you a friend but being able to meet you in person (back-to-back no less).  You are an inspiration. 

Love you much,
 
And fantastic pictures!

Cliff

I think everyone here will agree that the Destigmatization campaign in New Zealand could do no better than having you as their spokesperson Jan.  You looked great and I'm sure you did equally well.  Keep on truckin'

Love always, Jody
