Trish Talen/Life Story
A virtuous person is aperson is one that has a character which has traditionally good values such askindness, honesty, and service no matter the personal cost. The differencebetween a virtuous person and a person of heroic virtue it that people ofheroic virtue perform virtuous action which could lead to sainthood. This isbecause a person of heroic virtue is more devoted to God, religion and the“performance of extraordinary virtuous actions.” To live a life which is trulyheroic there must be a balance between living a virtuous life with good valuesand drives, such servicing others, selflessness for others in need and a lifeas a true hero a person that lives to courageously make things better in a waythat would benefit others in the community. Hello and welcome to the annualunsung hero awards night. Tonight, we celebrate many innovative and truly good peoplewho have devoted their lives to servicing others.

When Trish was 16 she had depression and it controlled her to the point where her parents had tointervene out of necessity. She began to see a therapist and began to feel apositive change in herself. She finished high-school and began her doubledegree in phycology and business, during her years at university she met manydifferent people struggling with mental health. As she gained an understandingof the world and people around her she devised an idea that would later be putinto action.
When she graduatedfrom university at 20 and entered a workplace which was male dominated sheexperience sexism for the first time, being put down because she was female,not getting major assignments or recognition, she began to see the need tofight for equality not just in the workplace but in life. She has since foughtsexism and does not allow it to occur in her business.
When she was 23 she quit her job and began to work on her own, developing her business in her garage of her best friend. Over the next 6 years, she struggled with financial disputes and doubters, but she powered through and is now one of the most heroic people to be given this award. Let’s welcome her up onto stage.

Hi everyone, thank youall so much for allowing me to be here. It has been a long road up until this point,but I am so grateful for everyone who has helped me grow and stand where I amtoday. When I was younger I struggled a lot with depression and anxiety, I stilldo. So, being able to create something that will help people like myself becomemore confident and comfortable in who they are and the life they have makes mefeel like I am doing something right, something good. When I was 23 I putall of my life savings into this idea for a mental health app knowing that ifit worked I could help so many people who are struggling. So, I worked for 5years knowing that one in seven young Australians experience a mental healthcondition. It has most certainly been a long road, but I am here now, and I don’tplan to stop. Thank you everyone for your support over these last few years I wouldn’tbe here without you.
