Muluba is a resilient storyteller. Born Muluba Princess Habanyama, to two Zambian parents, Muluba's life began with a bang. Although she was born in England, Muluba has lived in Canada over 20 years.
At age 2, Muluba was diagnosed with H.I.V. For over 15 years, Muluba (and her family) kept her status a secret. Other than medical professionals, Muluba could count on one hand the number of people that knew she was living with HIV.
Muluba's childhood was filled with confusion, anger, loss, and curiosity.
In 2007, Muluba's father, Cheelo Habanyama passed away.
In 2012, Muluba's mother, Dorothy Musonda passed away.
These were devasting losses for Muluba and her older sister.
After grieveing and dealing with depression and anxiety Muluba enrolled in Journalism school. She had always been a talker and always wanted to do "what Oprah does".
After her first semester, she decided that if she was going to ask other's about their lives she wanted to share her own.
Thus, in December 2014, Muluba filmed and uploaded a video titled Feel No Shame disclosing her status and history of HIV.
Since then Muluba's HIV and human rights activism has been at full throttle. She has volunteered and worked in many facets to protest stigma, discrimination, racism and sexism.
Muluba is now a freelance writer and has been published in FLARE, Huffington Post, MTV and more.
She is a professional speaker who has hosted duties for YTH, CIHR CTN, and more.
Muluba works full time at Ontario HIV Treatment Network in the communications team. She is an ambassador for the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research, an advisor for the Canadian Institue of Health Research's Canadian HIV Trials.
In 2020, Muluba chased one of her dreams and created her own podcast, The Muluba Show!
