My HIV/AIDS Story (Video blog)

Hello! First of all, I want to say how happy I am to be here. I've truly been blessed through my HIV journey to have so many amazing opportunities and blogging for A Girl Like Me is high on the list. I still can't say "A Girl Like Me" out loud without getting a lump in my throat. It's the most appropriate name, it's emotional for me and very special. From all the women I have met in the world thus far from my YouTubing that are HIV+, the bond is immediate and strong.

A little about me: I'm a mom to 3 kids, and I'm also a teacher, avid surfer/skateboarder and now a YouTuber. Lol, how the heck did that happen!? My journey started back on 2-15-16, when I was diagnosed with HIV. I was told a week later that I had AIDS. My world changed forever in a split second. Within a couple months, I healed physically and with that came emotional and psychological healing and acceptance of my new condition. I decided to share my initial HIV story with Facebook and then 5 months later through YouTube. To my absolute surprise, my video went viral and my YouTube channel was born.

In 2014 we conducted the largest outcomes measurement survey on The Well Project programming in our history. This survey collected demographic information and measured the use and impact of The Well Project's online resources on health-seeking behaviors and quality-of-life indicators.

Diarrhea is often a common problem for people living with HIV. Learn how it affects your body and what you can do to prevent and treat it.

On July 7, The Well Project joined forces with partner organizations, Positive Women’s Network-USA, and TheBody.com to present its 3rd webinar in the 2016 WATCH! series, "Why Race Matters: Women, Intersectionality, and HIV."
