    Hello! I am Earl Yates, a new Peer Consultant at Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical School in Orangeburg, SC. I believe it to be true that people usually are more at ease when they can converse with someone at their own level when they seek help. Sideways communication is just easier than upwards communications. As I pointed out, I am new, but I have had many unofficial sessions with my peers. The help I have given to others has been a benefit to me as well.
