Thought I would say Hello. - January 11th 2017, 04:50 PM

Hello! My name is Lizzie and I have been on TeenHelp a VERY long time. This year is my 11 year anniversary on TH.

But I figured I would introduce myself as I can kind of slink around in the background getting work done and I don't get to interact with very many users these days. So I will tell you a bit about myself and please feel free to say hi and introduce yourself as well.

I joined TH when I was 17, back in 2006. So I really was a teenager on TeenHelp once upon a time! I joined because of the religion forum really. I wanted a place to talk to other teens about religion, which was something I was still figuring out myself. However, talking to my friends at school, who didn't see the world the way I did, didn't go over very well. So I reached out to the internet and found TeenHelp.

I joined staff as a HelpLINK Mentor in 2007. Little known fact, I was actually declined the first time I applied for staff. (So never let that discourage you!) I have been on staff ever since (minus a year I took off). My username was originally Socalmoongal, however when TH was reset, Rob gave me Lizzie as my username and I have kept it ever since. I have finally decided to change it to something that suits me. Both as a tribute to why I came to this site in the first place and my now life position as a mother.

I have a bachelors of science in psychology and am currently in graduate school for forensic psychology. I love all things psych, so feel free to chat away with me about that! I plan on having a career focused around victim advocacy and forensic interviewing.

I have been married for three and a half years. We have a little boy and are expecting our daughter to make an appearance early June. So this year is going to get very busy, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

Feel free to ask me anything and let me know a bit about yourself.

Hi Lizzie!

I think some of us staffies might start a protest for you to change your username back to Lizzie

This is awesome that you've finally figured everything out.

For those members who don't know Lizzie, she is one of the nicest members on the site. I have known her since 2009 (maybe earlier). Don't ever be afraid to approach her. Like she said, if you get declined from staff don't let that discourage you. I believe all of us have been declined at least once!

This might take a while to get used to your username, but I do like it!

Hey Lizzie

That slightly awkward moment when I briefly thought you were a new but returning member and got confused when I saw you were a staffie already

I'm really glad you wrote your introduction though and it's lovely to see how long you have been a part of TeenHelp!

It's interesting to hear why you joined and how you were declined first time to be on staff. Great lesson to others to not get discouraged!

I wish I knew more about psychology, as it does sound very interesting. I'm sure you'll be really good at a career in victim advocacy and forensic interviewing.

I think you're new username is interesting! And a lovely tribute too

Keep us updated on your growing little family too

Took me a while to realize it was you, Lizzie It's lovely to see how long you have been on TeenHelp and I hope you continue here for longer (forever) because we won't let you leave. Happy 11 years on TeenHelp and please keep us updated on your little growing family.

Congratulations on being on TeenHelp for 11 years! This calls for a TeenHelp Anniversary cake and party, don't you think?

I didn't know you were declined for staff at first. Thank you for sharing that because I feel it'll encourage those who were declined to decide to try again and reapply. After all, you were declined and look at what a great staff member you've been all this time. I'm glad you reapplied.

A bachelor of science in psychology is fascinating! Great work, and I wish you the best of luck on your career goals. Psychology studies interests me, and I'd definitely like to chat about it sometime.

Congratulations on your baby girl. You'll have to keep us updated and let us know how she and the rest of your family is doing!


For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

I have been getting some backlash on the name change. But it's OK, I know you all love me.

I personally can't even understand how it has been 11 years. So much has happened and this site has grown so much. I am so honored to have been apart of its upbringing.

I am 20 weeks pregnant today, which means I am halfway through the pregnancy. I'll be sure to let you all know when she gets here in a few months.

You've been getting backlash? What kind?

Also, I have a very important question...... or two.. Will we get pictures of your beautiful baby girl once she makes her arrival, and are you still going to be around once she comes? what are we going to do?!

I didn't even realise it was you for a bit there, I don't think any of us were expecting a name change.

Congrats on 11 years here! And another congrats on the baby girl! You definitely have to keep us posted on your growing family.
