Her statement marks a significant shift in her identity and signals her desire to distance herself from a role she once embraced passionately.

As a former AIDS Ambassador, Dzidzor played a crucial role in raising awareness about HIV/AIDS and advocating for those affected by the disease. However, her decision to relinquish this title reflects a personal evolution and a desire to redefine her public persona beyond her association with a specific cause.
