As a new member of A Girl Like Me, my intention of joining this group was to begin sharing the story of my HIV diagnosis, how I advocated for myself and my daughter during my first pregnancy, and how I'm advocating for my current pregnancy. I've trained in dance my entire life and graduated from The University of the Arts with a degree in modern dance. My early professional life began with myself teaching and performing dance in the Richmond area- I'll share some of that eventually.
I somehow ended up in Natural Bridge, VA with my husband, two cats, and a dog in 2018. Since then, I've given birth to my daughter, Aurora, and rescued a dog, Shyla. I eventually will get into the story behind my diagnosis and my life beforehand, but currently we are quarantined due to COVID-19 and my mind is so full of anxieties, I just need to "get it out". Whether or not others will read this, I'm not sure; maybe you all are having similar experiences and we can offer each other support, but for now I'm going to ramble.
