This month, we would like to celebrate and honor our listener and mentor Pieta. Pieta is a listener from Germany, who can connect with members in both English and German. Pieta brings her positive energy and supportive nature to our community. With a steady following of regular members, it is clear that Pieta provides a high quality listener service to the members she supports. We are so lucky to have her as part of our team!
Let’s all give a digital high-five and a big 7 Cups of Tea hug to Pieta this month!
Get to know more about Pieta in her own words:
What is your favorite part of being a Listener?
My favorite thing about being a Listener is that we can help our members so much with saying so little. There are countless times when we are the first ones to validate our member's feelings, the first ones to let them know their thoughts, feelings and problems are acknowledged as such and not judged. It is so little but yet helps so much.
Tell us something we may not know about you?
There are many times that I am struggling with my self-esteem. Plus, I'm actually not a big talker in real life.
When I’m not listening on 7 Cups of Tea, I’m…
I am into riding, photography, watching movies/TV series, geocaching, reading - but of course I'm not doing half of it as much as I'd like to. What I most likely do is working, surfing the Internet and watching movies or TV series.
