Kami likes nature, telling stories and collecting stuff.
At her unveiling today, the healthy, affectionate five-year-old character wondered nervously if anyone else on Sesame Street would play with her.
But she need not worry. The other Muppets enthusiastically welcomed her.
The South African government urged the creation of the H-I-V-infected muppet to reduce the stigma about the disease.


One in nine South Africans is H-I-V positive. That's nearly five MILLION people.
South Africa has more H-I-V-positive residents than any other country in the world, but one AIDS activist says there's still a lot of discrimination.
Kami's name is derived from the (T-swana) Tswana word for acceptance.
