My name is LaWanda Wilkerson. I am a single mother of a 19 year old daughter, and a Pre-K teacher. I have been HIV-positive for three years now. I remember the day I found out. I was actually in my classroom after school when I got a call from my doctor who informed me over the phone. Since then I have gone through so many emotions.

Why LaWanda wants to pe part of A Girl Like Me: I want to be a blogger with A Girl Like Me to help others through words of encouragement and support so they will hopefully not experience the things that I have.
