A Girl Like Me (AGLM), a program of The Well Project, is a blog where women across the gender spectrum can share their experiences and promote understanding of HIV. Millions of women around the globe are living with HIV, yet many feel they are alone in their disease and isolated in their day-to-day experiences. The goals of AGLM are to help normalize HIV; and to create a safe space for women living with HIV from around the world to speak out and share their experiences – with each other, and with those seeking a support community.

Travelling is always exciting until you remember what has to be done before leaving your home! My lovely people, in your life there are always moments you need to travel from your home, whether this is for family visits, holidays...

I hate traveling. I just simply hate being away from home and away from my dogs. I always love and am grateful for the opportunity and experience, but I'm an introvert and "homegirl" deep down. So virtual conferences are great...

I feel truly blessed to have made it this far. The start of this year was a very hard year. I lost some friends that I hope to see in the light when my mission is complete, but I am...

Being a Black woman and wearing the badge of honor of being strong is exhausting to say the least. It's now embedded in us to keep showing up, pushing through so much that we don't even know any other way...
