“I believe the best thing that you can do with that spotlight is to stand in the shadow of something important, something you believe in and maybe cast some light on that. So that maybe the world can take notice. It’s not too late to change the future, I really do believe that and by focusing on HIV prevention and by just keeping this global support alive or this fight we can end AIDS.” - Charlize Theron
