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.

Hello Everyone,

Just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself. My name is Ciri. I am glad that this forum exist because there aren't many outlets for women who are HIV positive, especially straight women. I live in the DC area and there aren't many support groups for women like me.

I Could Be Broken, but I’m Not Defeated

For the first six weeks of the semester, my colleagues and I collectively examined various social...

It's Your Choice

When I was little I loved the color pink. I was so small for my age I still wore toddler sizes in first grade. I liked Dora the Explorer and Hannah Montana (Miley Cyrus). I wanted to wear dresses all the time and for a while I didn't speak...

HIV vs. Dignity

First, I'm going to start by telling you the story of a young woman who had no strength, no self-confidence and no dignity. The story of this young woman is my own and it's a story I've only ever shared with one person, oddly enough, someone I had sworn...

Start Treatment as Soon as Possible!

I will tell you something. I refused meds for 10 years! In the beginning, because in 1991 I was 18 and they wanted me to take AZT in high dosages and they wanted me to sign a waiver that said it could damage my internal organs. I moved to...

Intro - Ieshia Scott

Hello, my name is... Ieshia Scott. There are several dots NOT because I didn't want to use my name but because I was hesitant due to the many people who are NOT prepared for this day. There are many people who know I've been advocating and doing my part...
