Meet Lahinandro "Johnson" Koleane. Johnson is 21 years old and is originally from the Republic of Madagascar, situated off the east coast of Africa. He is open-minded and loves helping people. Johnson is a pre-nursing student at Wake Tech. He chose to accept a peer mentoring role as an outreach officer to increase his social and professional networks and to connect with other students to help them navigate and use available college resources.

Meet Keturah Wicks. Keturah chose to participate in the peer mentoring program at Wake Tech, largely in part to the impact she wants to have on minority males and their success. As a mother of three minority males, encouraging and motivating them daily to be their best selves is something in which she takes great pride. While she understands that everyone isn't afforded the same opportunities, she believes she has a responsibility to make sure she motivates and encourages people each time she encounters them to live to their fullest potential. She believes that you can be anything you want to be if you put your mind to it.
