A Girl Like Me (AGLM) is a program of The Well Project and is an online “blog” where women of all ages can share their stories and promote understanding of HIV through online storytelling. There are millions of women around the globe who are living with HIV and AIDS, yet many feel they are alone in their disease and isolated in the experiences they go through each day. The goals of AGLM are to help normalize HIV and AIDS in women and girls, and create a safe space for women living with HIV from around the world to speak out and share their experience of what it is to live life with HIV.

Strange but True

I was invited by one of the Private Secondary Schools in Abuja to address mothers on issues concerning a girl child.

For me I choose to make it an interactive session for those mothers in order for us to be able to discuss some of the issues and challenges faced...

Writing for Sanity

As birthdays pass and Holiday comes.

I can't help to have a heavy heart.

I said good bye to my loved ones some time has passed.
