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.
