Volunteer Of The Year Award 2015. - December 31st 2015, 01:16 AM

Hello everyone,

As with last year it is my pleasure to announce our Volunteer Of The Year Award. This award recognises the magnificent contribution of one of our volunteers who has gone above and beyond this year. This year it is has been an incredibly hard decision with many volunteers working extremely hard in their roles, however we have decided to recognise one particular volunteer who has achieved a lot this year.

I am delighted to give this year's Volunteer Of The Year Award to Dez (Epiphany.). Dez has been a volunteer with TeenHelp for over four years now. Her involvement in TeenHelp has spanned many areas of the site including Forums, HelpLINK, our Newsletter, Articles, as a Project Advisor, a member of committees and taking up a new role as Forums and Community Officer.

In fact it is hard to find an area of TeenHelp that Dez hasn't helped out in at some point and I suspect many of you have encountered her, showing how truly dedicated and widespread her activity has been.

Despite having responsibilities over important areas such as supervising a team of volunteers and moderating, Dez continues to tirelessly provide fantastic advice across the site as well as writing articles and pieces for our Newsletter too!

Her time helping everybody on TeenHelp has been instrumental in keeping the site running this year and I hope she will continued to be involved next year. Congratulations Dez, you really deserve this award! The wonderful prize for this award is receipt of our Deluxe Sponsor incentive.

A final huge thank you to all of our volunteers who have given so much time to TeenHelp this year to make it the special safe place it is.

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

WOO BUTTER. You deserve it!


“There is nothing beautiful about the wreckage of a human being.
There is nothing pretty about damage, about pain, about heartache.
What is beautiful is their strength, their resilience, their fortitude
as they display an ocean of courage when they pick through the
wreckage of their life to build something beautiful brand new,
against every odd that is stacked against them.” — Nikita Gill

This exactly.

This is well deserved. You're so dedicated and you do amazing work around the site. I love seeing your name around and I hope to see it around for a long time. Congratulations!

Congrats ma'am.


Revenge is a poison meant for others that we end up swallowing ourselves.
Vengeance is a dark light that blinds all who seek it.
The untroubled soul knows there is no justice in revenge.
The untroubled soul knows that to seek vengeance, is to seek destruction.

I am absolutely not surprised about this, because TeenHelp really wouldn't be the same without you. Congratulations on this well-deserved award, and remember that you're never ever allowed to leave. Also know that I can still remember you before you were on staff, so while you keep on rising up the ranks and contributing literally everywhere, I'll just be over here going "Oh, Dez? Yeah, we go way back. Why, I knew her when..."


if you know the hunter's coming
then you hide or keep on running
'cause she's slain the gods before.
