    Hi Jamie! Thank you for everything you do for TWLOHA. In the past, I’ve been lucky to see you speak at a public event at local coffeehouse. Lately, it seems like most of your speaking engagements have been at colleges and events with limited access. Will there be more public TWLOHA speaking events in the future?

    Hi Jamie!!! I was wondering what the book writing experience has been like for you, and how you feel now after it’s finally here and ready for people to read. Does it feel kind of surreal?

    Well this is weird. Is it going to be a chat as years before? Cause I can see a new platform plus tweeting your questions and all that stuff is also new. Anyway count me in! Tomorrow is going to be my 3rd time plus the anniversary of my subscription to the street team… So excited!!!

    Do you have plans to come to the UK? I’ve been following TWLOHA for quite a while and anytime I’ve looked I’ve never seen any dates for events here and was curious. I really appreciate everything you’ve done and can’t wait for your book and the movie. Thank you.

    1) will you marry me? 2) can you please tour around Pittsburgh or central PA? 3) when will the 5k packs be coming out and will there be other ways for people to participate other than coming to the race? Love you! Happy Valentines day to the entire TWLOHA team.

    How did you get started in writing? When did you realize you could write so well? Was there a specific person that got you started?

    Any plans of expansion or job openings? It’s been my dream to work for twloha and I regret not applying a year ago when you had openings. Thank you Jamie for everything you do. You and twloha helped me through some tough times in my life and you are still a daily inspiration and role model.

    Have you ever suffered with depression or mental illness?

    Jamie, you have traveled extensively and met many people however, you are not yet married. Do you think love is something one must seek out or it finds a person? How does one continue to hope for something that has thus far eluded them to no avail?

    First, thank you for everything you and TWLOHA has done to raise awareness and treatment of depression. My question is: I really want to raise awareness of depression and suicide specifically in the teen years. Do you have any advice on how to start the conversation within the high school and college environment?

    Hey Jamie. Huge respect out to you and the TWLOHA team, you guys are a huge inspiration. What advice would you give to those of us who are single and seem not to be able to find a significant other, especially on a day like Valentines?

    Has the movie changed much from pre-release showings?

    What do you think about being open on the topic of mental illness, self-harm, etc? Do you think it helps? I’m currently a “recovering” self-harmer, and have found this organization very helpful to me, and as I get further along, am trying to figure out how to extend the help in my little circle.

    Why don’t you make a shirt saying, “We are all broken people trying to help broken people.” My brokenness has me to pursue a degree in Psychology to walk with other survivors and hopefully help them through. None of us have all answers, we just have to try.
