Thanks for the tag, but I can’t make this one, sorry. I’ll give some of my own answers tomorrow.
I have assignments I need to get done, but I can’t wait to read all the answers, questions and replies!

OK here we go Smiley Happy

I want to welcome the wonderful @Bre-RO to our discussion tonight. 

Many of you have seen Bre around the forums and tonight I am super pumped to hear all about her and her experience in advocacy.

 

So let's kick off with the first question.

 

Tell us a little bit about yourself and three fun facts!

Re: Advocacy - Ask a Pro Live with Bre August 29th 2019

Thanks Claire! Let's get straight into it.. 

 

As many of you know my name is Bre and I've recently joined ReachOut and love it so far. I think why it's such a perfect fit is because everybody who is part of RO is passionate about helping people, building community and talking about things like mental health Heart 

 

Some facts about me...I love to travel, listen to and see music and be in nature. My favourite landscape is the desert - a fact about me would be that I love to travel and see natural landscapes. The most surreal to date would be the Sahara Desert. My goal is to see all the continents by the time I'm thirty years old - so far I've just got two to go. 

 

Another fact is that I love to write. Ever since I was a kid I wrote poems and short stories. These days I like to write opinion pieces, mainly because it helps me get things off my chest. To my surprise though last year three reputable media sources published my work!

Hi @Bre-RO! Excited to be a part of this discussion! Smiley Happy

I love travelling too! Like you, I also loved writing poems and short stories when I was younger. Congratulations on getting some of your work published. Smiley Happy

@WheresMySquishy Excited to have you hear! 

 

It's nice to know we share that in common Heart And thank you so much - it definitely made my year 

Re: Advocacy - Ask a Pro Live with Bre August 29th 2019

Hi @Bre-RO 

 That's amazing about only having two continents left!!!

 

And well done on the published works! I love to hear how writing helps you get things off your chest I am the same with songwriting Heart

@ecla34  A bit chilly and really expensive haha so it's a bit of a challenge but that's the whole idea. 

 

@Claire-RO Writing is such a great outlet! Journal writing as well is such a good way of letting go of stuff
