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.

Stigma 2020

I have not known a life without HIV. In the era of U=U and PrEP, I feel myself navigating the stigma of HIV at an increased volume. The more people living with HIV attempt to escape the stigmas through messaging of scientific advances, the more we deal with a heightened...

True Warrior

To be a warrior, there is no need to be in a war of guns and fight until you win. I have been in many different wars with and without gunfire. I am still fighting one long war, which I call the "STIGMA WAR".

I am a warrior in the...

An Open Thank You

Can we just talk about The Well Project for a moment?

Like, not just talk, but boast.

The living beauty flower

Dear person living with or affected by HIV and AIDS,

It has been while and I would like to check on how you have been doing. It says that life is like a disco ball, no matter how the music changes, you just keep on dancing. Life during the Corona...

Catching Up

It's been a while since I've written anything. I've just been so caught up with life these last four months, just like I'm sure you all have been as well. I count my blessings every day knowing that in these difficult and uncertain times there are so many people who...

A HIV Journey - A Story of Hope

As a woman living with HIV since 2003, I dream of a world that is free from HIV stigma, where people with HIV can express themselves with confidence. I will take you on my HIV journey whereby you will see me transform from fear and shame, through acceptance, towards fighting...

Seven Years

It has been seven years since I have blogged with you, my sisters. I had no idea it had been so long. In part, I think it's "ok". No need to judge myself about my absence, but rather perhaps congratulate myself that I have been simply living life. Well, you...

Why It Is Important to Have Language Justice in Our Latinx Communities

It is crucial for Latinx people to feel comfortable speaking their language, which in many ways causes a barrier to communicate with their physicians, case managers, etc. I have worked with many who have fallen through the cracks of the healthcare system because they are afraid to ask important questions about their health and...

My Story: Part Two

On the morning of May 16th, 2016 - the first appointment with my primary care physician, I vividly recall waking up overwhelmed with new and refreshing feelings of hope. I stepped out of bed with hope, brushed my teeth with hope, dressed my body with hope; I just knew that...
