It's hard to connect 18-year old Junjun with an HIV/AIDS affected orphan. Studying in a high school in Fuyang, the unfortunate but confident boy looks just like his peers.

Born an HIV-infected baby due to mother-to-child transmission in 2001, Junjun became an orphan in 2004 after his parents died of HIV/AIDS. Adopted by Fuyang AIDS Orphan Salvation Association, Junjun was able to receive the same education as ordinary children and enjoy a happy school life.

He worked pretty hard at school, and at the spare time he also created lots of paintings to call on people to care for the HIV-infected group.
