My name is Mina and I am a teenager who was born with HIV. I am happy to be a new blogger for A Girl Like Me. This week is National Youth HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (#NYHAAD) and I want to talk about something that is really helpful for youth with HIV. HIV camps really help kids and teens with HIV or who have someone in their family with HIV. I have been going to HIV summer camps for nine years, since I was a little girl. I go to one camp that is for kids who are HIV positive like me and I go to another one for kids who have a family member with HIV. Both are great. I think every kid who has HIV or someone with HIV in their family should think about going to camp.
