I have had the privilege of being a part of the Peer Power organization since its inception and I have enjoyed every single moment.  Seeing the sheer joy on students’ faces after they have been assisted with a subject they struggled in is indescribable.  Odd as it may seem, Peer Power can be likened to an inhaler or decongestant that provides relief to a person suffering from asthma or simply sinus issues.  When a person has asthma, at times they might have difficulty breathing and would need assistance to relief them of their congestion.  In a similar light, at times many students find themselves, unable to “breathe”; they have difficulties in many subjects in school.  Peer Power act as tools that open the airways of understanding and we relieve them of the pressure and worry of failure.  As a result of students’ willingness to learn and Peer Power’s eagerness to provide assistance, students are able to excel in areas they never thought they could.
