Hello there

JonAddoJonAddo Deactivated Posts: 19 Settling in
Howdy all.  :)

I'm Jon, a member of The Mix staff. Specifically I'm the Multimedia Producer (basically just means I make the video and animation content). I'm new to the boards but wanted to get involved as everything I've seen from here has been amazing - you're all wonderful people!  <3

Little bit about myself: I'm a lover of film and have directed/produced some short films and features. I love writing as well and spend my spare time devoted to that. I enjoy exploring new places, trying new things, and meeting new people. Open communication, support, and education about mental health is extremely important to me (and one of the reasons I'm so happy to be at somewhere like The Mix whom wholeheartedly share this goal).

Looking forward to getting more and more involved with the boards  =)

    Ah welcome Jon! 

    Nice to see all the people who make it possible from the background! :)

    I too am a lover of mental health education as well as pretty much anything relating to the well-being of young people! 

    Good to have you here! 

    Edit. I gotta add this in response to your hello there!

    Welcome @JonAddo!!!

    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley
