Heya fellow members & listeners!!! My name is Samantha. I'm a Forum Teen Star and a Chatroom Track Teen Star!!!! That means I love the 7cups forums & I love building community in the teen listener room (TL)
My 7cups roles: chat support, peer support, forum support, global moderator & support session leader
My mentorship style is like a buddy who will help you with 7cups questions, finding resources, chat support, listener goal setting, & helping you feel supported in your listener role <3 My listening style is recovery-focused & positive mindsets <3
I'm on a semi-hiatus because of mock exams! Until this weekend (19 January) I'll be on much less than usual. You can still contact me though and I'll try my best to respond!
One of the first things I ever loved was books, I think. It's something that's remained constant about me throughout the years. My favourite author at the moment's Marie Lu, and here's a quote of hers: Every locked door has a key. Every problem has a solution.
Stories just attract me, I suppose. In much the same way, people do as well. It fascinates me that everyone's so unique, that each possesses a story that's unlike any other. And thus I'm always willing to hear your story, no matter what it is! When I read, I get so caught up in the story that my thoughts and feelings are secondary to what the character's thinking and feeling. I believe - and hope! - that I listen in that way too.
Regardless of your story, you're not a waste of my time, I promise. If you're struggling, I'm really sorry, and I hope that I'll be able to support you. If you've got something you'd like to rant about, then you may think of our chat as a safe space for you, and vent all you'd like. And though these are not the only emotions, I hope my point manages to get across - that no matter who you are or how you're feeling, I'll do my best to be here for you, because you're worth it.
Some things I've dealt with include anxiety, bullying, depression, eating disorders, stress, forgiveness, loneliness and self-harm. I'm a teenager, girl, sister, student and daughter, not necessarily in that order! That being said I'm willing to listen to you even if you're not going through anything that falls under the topics I've mentioned - but if you'd prefer to find someone else, that's okay too. You can do so here.
Welcome to 7Cups. My name is Imogene; it's nice to meet you. I'm so glad you're here.
Here's a bit about my involvement on-site! I'm awfully serious at times (as you can probably tell from my bio), but I'm always ready and willing to help. ✽ Peer Supporter, Peer Support Buddy
Listeners, if you've had a hard chat and need some support, feel free to message me! You're doing an amazing job and I'm so glad you've decided to give up some of your time to be a listener; being able and happy to support others is honestly incredible. Please remember that you're important too, though!

Letting you all know I'm going to be away from January 2nd to January 28th beause I'm going on a trip with my family! I probably won't have WiFi at all so I'm very sorry if I can't get back at you during this time! Take lots of care and Happy New Year!---------
Thanks for stumbling into my profile :) It's very nice to see you! I'm Mel and I'm a young girl from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I'm a college student majoring in physics. In the future I would love to work in a laboratory studying neuroscience and illnesses regarding the human brain! I work as a support teacher for young kids mostly. I love teaching and explaining things - I think everybody deserves their chance at understanding a difficult matter, even if they need more time for it than someone else would.
I'm not much of a talker as a listener. I feel like it's very important that every single person out there has someone to rely on and be there for them. I want you to feel like you can tell me anything on your mind, feel heard, understood and never judged. That's what I aim for. I know I can't change your life nor magically solve your problems (Although I would really like to be able to do that) but I do can promise to be here, as much as possible and as much as you need. I'm your friend and I'll always care about you. I deal my own battles every day and I know that talking helps. You are never alone here.
I would like to be a writer someday, because books mean a lot to me. Everything I want is what I write to be special for someone, if I could make at least one (only one) person feel something by something I wrote, I would already feel realized. Writing has always come naturally to me. It's who I am. As a kid, I would always grab a pencil and write, instead of drawing. I would always make stories up in my mind to tell other people. I would always write too much, speak too much, and take too long to tell an anecdote. I was born a storyteller. At the moment, I just do it for fun and for myself or my closest ones.Anything else you would like to know about me, feel free to message me and ask, I'm pretty much an open book! and will love to get to know eachother more. Right now I have a very tight schedule, and I get aroun 5-10 new chats daily. Therefor my status is mostly offline because I can't take many more chats. I'm mainly working with scheduled chats only. If you need immediate help, I would recommend reaching to someone in the browse listeners page! My responses can take 2-3 days - but I'm always listening!
I joined 7Cups in August 2014. A month later, September 23th, I became a Teen Star, and it was an honor to be able to do that which such an awesome group of people. After some time I started focusing mostly on quality projects so I became a Teen Star Leader for Quality. I turned 18 in 2016, meaning it was my time to transistor to the adult (oldies) side. I'm a Mentor now (Adult & Teen). At the moment, I'm a forum, community, chatroom and quality (adult & teen) mentor. I'm a teen mentor leader as well, a Community Mentor Leader for the Teen Only Zone category and a Forum Ambassador, focusing on the development and activity of our teen members. Right now my main involvement are the subcommunities and the forums and I've always focused the most on supporting the teen side of the site that was where I started.So really if you are around here and have any question or need someone to chat or you are a new listener and want a long term mentor to cheer on you and be happy for all your success - I'm your gal.
