Martina Clark has lived a fascinating life, taking her to 90+ countries, seeing her in the room with world leaders, activists, and educators, and now as a writer, with her book, My Unexpected Life, an International Memoir of Two Pandemics, HIV and Covid 19.

Martina had several major changes after 35, an age doctors never even expected her to see. She talks with Kristin about her time in the UN, a very difficult marriage and how it all started when testing positive for HIV changed everything.
