Johnnette is from Bluefield, West Virginia. She is a junior at Bluefield state college, and she is excited to major in Social Science. She plans on receiving her masters in Psychology, and so she has enjoyed learning about effective mentoring. She wanted to become a mentor because helping others has always been one of her passions. She believes that we all need help at some point in our lives and we might take a couple steps back before going forward but one push, one nice word, or one hand reaching out can make all the difference.

She juggles school, work, and being a parent which makes for challenging late nights, early mornings, and less time spent with her family. Her son is 20 now and he has always saw her go for what she wants. She is happy to be an example to her son, setting standards, accomplishing goals and still pushing him to be the best he can be through seeing her become better.

Tyran Wilson
My name is Tyran Wilson, and I’m from N.C. Winston-Salem. My current major is Computer Science. I believe being a Peer-Mentor is enjoyable because I get to interact with many different kinds of people and help freshmen so they aren’t as confused as I was during my freshman year! I hope my mentees know that I am happy to help them and look forward to talking with them.
