Hi! I am Laiba, also known as Hope! I am a Community Manager at 7 Cups. I can be found all over the forums and in the teen rooms. If you are a teen user looking to provide feedback on the teen community then I encourage you to attend our weekly teen meetings. I have a passion for a lot of things, one of them being 7 Cups! I believe in what we do here and I am happy to have the chance to work with you all! I am open to learning and growing, my motto in life is 'We live, we learn'. Anyone is welcome to provide me feedback on the way I do things! You can find my focus on 7 Cups below:

Forums | Internship | Sub-communities | Teens
Apart from these 4 main projects, you will also see me doing random things to support the community because why not!

On a personal front, I am mostly known for my love of hot coffee which I have tried to capture in this short piece that I wrote some years ago. I love poetry, I write a little when time allows. I have great admiration and passion for all things philosophy. These days I have been focusing more on reading books that I find helpful for my role as a community manager and as a human being! I share some of what I read here! 

Books I read, enjoyed, and recommend:
7 Cups for the Searching Soul
📚 Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl 
📚 Courage to be Disliked by Fumitake Koga and Ichiro Kishimi
📚 The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey

📚 Atomic Habits by James Clear
📚 Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek

The recipe I follow for a successful life: 
'“Align yourself with people that you can learn from, people who want more out of life, people who are stretching and searching and seeking some higher ground in life.” ― Les Brown

'An inspiring ray of hope’
There are two types of listeners, the first merely listen to your words and the second those who listen to your feelings as well as your words.
This inspiring listener falls in the second category. Didn't pry & helped me feel better. An intelligent, caring & empathetic listener.
Highly recommend & I'm glad I got a chance to speak to you.
Well done, you earned it.
Beauty of this soul lies deep within its soul.
