My Story

I’m Alicia. I contracted the HSV2 when I was 22 years old. It became quickly apparent how the world would see me and how I was made to feel about myself. I wanted to hide my secret from everyone. However, after researching and scouring social media, I realized I was far from alone.

It is my mission to raise awareness as to the misrepresentations, miseducation and the powerful stigma surrounding herpes. When two-thirds of the world’s population has a form of HSV, why are we meant to feel ashamed, less than or undeserving of love? It’s time to stop hiding, find the answers to arm ourselves with knowledge to inform others, and treat HSV like the commonplace skin condition that it is.

My hopes are to build a community to calm fears, provide support, advocate love and demonstrate kindness. Please join me in creating a Safe Place.
