I wanted to swing by to tell you that over here at @The Mix we have been blown away by this groups passion and drive to make a difference in the world. This forum is only 2 months old and already through it you have had a real impact. In the past 2 months your ideas and opinions have

Please take a moment to breathe that in. That is a massive amount of influence in just two months. The ongoing impact of you taking part here will reach far beyond what you can imagine right now. 

Make sure you check in on the posts you took part in for more specific feedback on how you have made a difference in those areas. If the feedback isn't there just yet it will be very soon. 

Keep an eye out for our next discussion, where we will be asking you for your thoughts on a specific policy the Government is looking at right now about Online Harms - or keeping people safe on the internet. I'll link it here when its live. :) 

Also feel free to put in any comments or suggestions or just general feedback you have for us about this forum, so we can make sure it keeps working for you. :) 

Keep being wonderful,

    Woo hoo! Well done everyone. We have all been amazing and very helpful. Those hours spent in group chats and on the boards responding to discussions was all worth it in the end. :) Remember to not give up if something gets hard and to remember that there is always a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow even if it doesn't look that obvious to you. 

    Holy Moly that is definitely a lot that we did in 2 months on The Mix.
    I have endured pain and loss. I have felt broken. I have known hardship, and I have felt lost and alone.

    But here I stand, trying to move forward, one day at a time. I will remember the lessons in my life because they are making me who I am. Stronger.

    A warrior.
