Meet The Founder
My name is Tyra Moore, I am the Founder of A Girl Like Me Inc. From personal experience of being pregnant at the age of 14 years old in 2007, and nobody knew. I gave birth the same week that my mom finally found out. I did not have anything for my baby but when my mom told everyone, my family, friends and community came together to make sure that I and the baby had everything we needed, and it lasted for a few years. From that moment, I promised myself that I would one day pay it all forward by helping Girls, Teens, Teen Moms and Moms.
Fast forward to today, I persevered. I finished high school, went on to further my education, and now I am married with 2 additional children. Because of my experience, it is important to me to provide a safe space for other teenage girls and girls like me, to learn how to prevent teenage pregnancy but also provide them with the basic necessities and education needed to be a good parent should they become pregnant. #AGirlLikeMe
