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.

This is me in one of the worst times of my life…a lost girl around 15 years old, a gang member, a thug! I hated myself! There are really no pics of my past. I am not a single particle...

'Read all about it…' plays on the radio 'How old was she, the girl that sang that?' my daughter asks. 'I'm not sure 23…24.' my reply was not about by Emieli Sande, but a beautiful, brave young woman that stood...
