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.

As I sit, reflecting on the past images, moments and those feelings that came from within, from deep within... the wondering how, when, why and where, of my HIV diagnosis... In the beginning I could not hear God's voice, today...

Celebrating the woman in the mirror? 🪞 Who is the fairest of them all? That concept for me is often very triggering. I really despise mirrors and reflections and pictures of myself! Well unless I control the perfect filter of...
