In 2004, at the age of 19, Thembi Ngubane was given a tape recorder to keep an audio diary of her life with AIDS. Over the course of a year, Thembi recorded more than 50 hours of tape, which was edited into a half-hour documentary for broadcast on NPR's All Things Considered on April 19, 2006. Since that time, Thembi's AIDS Diary has reached tens of millions of listeners around the world on BBC (UK), ABC (Australia), and CBC (Canada).

Thembi's story has become more than a radio documentary. Recently, Thembi came to the US for an AIDS Awareness tour. She presented her story to high school and college students, Congressional staff in DC, AIDS doctors in Boston, celebrities in Los Angeles, and HIV positive teens in Chicago, culminating in an appearance on CNN.
