Dr. Scott said, “I’ve always had an interest in HIV being that I’m from Indianapolis, Indiana where Ryan White lived and died in 1990. From a young age I was exposed to HIV and the discrimination that people who are affected received. During my reign as Ms. Tallahassee my main platform addressed issues surrounding HIV awareness and education.”

“Recently, I adopted my little sister Alia Scott, a 9th grader at Atlantic Coast, who is adjusting well. It has always been my dream to be able to take of my siblings after my mom died of breast cancer in 2003.”
