Hey everyone,

If you're new the forum you might come across Staff Moderators and Moderators from time to time (you can read more about our role over on this thread).

A few of you mentioned that you'd like to have a page where you can get to know the moderators a bit more. We thought this was a great idea so we've created this thread for all of our moderators to introduce themselves and answer some fun questions!

These are the Boards Moderators here at The Mix:

Staff Moderators
@Mike
@Aife
@Ed_
@Italia

Volunteer Moderators
@Riley
@JamJar
@CarolineV
@Stephanie
@mags98
@Jordan
@PoppyB
@Abi
@Jade09

Let's start with the introductions :) 
We're @Aife@Mike, @Italia and @Ed_ - the staff team here at The Mix. We don't provide support via this account, but if you have any questions about the boards or need a hand finding your way around, feel free to drop us a message. Alternatively, you can head over to the Help Desk.

    Hey everyone!

    I'm Aife! I started volunteering for The Mix in 2016 and joined the team in 2017 :) 

    1. What's a fun fact about yourself?
    I met the Duchess of Cambridge back when I was a volunteer for The Mix and we talked about the Great British Bake Off! 

    2. What do you like to do at the weekends?
    At the weekends I like to see my friends, relax and watch Netflix!

    3. If you were stranded on a desert island, what three items would you bring with you?
    I'd bring my phone, an inflatable boat and a big bag of popcorn!
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    Hi I'm Mags, I started volunteering near the end of February.

    1. What's a fun fact about yourself?
    I'm very good with FRIENDS tv show trivia and quotes. 

    2. What do you like to do at the weekends?
    As a student everyday is a weekend for me :D my weekdays and weekends are usually quite similar. But I'll socialise with friends that I wouldn't see in the week.

    3. If you were stranded on a desert island, what three items would you bring with you?
    This question I could go into a lot of detail with different options depending on the circumstances but probably lip balm, a pot (to boil and drink water from) and some inflatable ring or ball to play with.
