Joyce Dzidzor Nartey
Joyce Dzidzor Nartey the focal and most popular HIV ambassador for the past five years in Ghana will tonight October 4, premiere her true life story made into a movie at the National Theatre in Accra.
‘My Cross Roads’ features top movie stars like Ekow Smith Asante, John Dumelo, Vicky Zugah among others.
The movie aims to compliment government’s effort at sensitizing the public on the dangers of the disease. It is also to strengthen education on premarital sex and the dangers involved.
Joyce, who is HIV positive, said ‘Growing up from a very poor background, I discovered my love for music and dance. I was very ambitious, passionate about my dancing skills. All effort to get help to go to school proved futile. I was vulnerable, most times raped. I had to attend all kinds of events in my neighbourhood to exhibits my dancing skills. In my case there was no one to confide in. I hawked all kinds of things to make ends meet.’
She said in her effort to make a living she contacted the deadly HIV, about which she has preached ever since she was diagnosed. Joyce has participated in seminars, workshops telling her story on how she contacted the HIV.
Dzidzor is also a backup singer and has backed top Ghanaian musicians in her quest to make a profession.
