Peer Mentors



Angie Nguyen

Hi there, I’m Angie! You’ll be seeing me often as I’ll be part of the FYE Program as a Peer Mentor. I’m part of a few clubs on campus such as Leadership Experience and Phi Theta Kappa, so if you’re curious about clubs, I’m the one to talk to! I hope we’ll get to know each other more this year. Welcome to your first year at MJC, I’m glad I get to be a part of it!



Anna da Rosa

Hi everyone! I am looking forward to be a Peer Mentor and working with you guys. I am an international student here at MJC and I have been living in United States for the past three years. My first year at College was really difficult but I succeed, so now it’s time for me to help you at FYE.  I am really easy going and love helping everyone.. I can’t wait to meet you and push you to do your best, reach your goals and be successful.



Caitlin Libby

One thing I have heard said about me is that I sound like an automated voice message or that I act like an anime character. I think I like the second observation better. One thing that can be said about me is that I love a good story; be it an anime, manga, comic, video game, or book. If you are looking for suggestions, or are writing your own story, hit me up! Additionally, if you need help with homework, feel free to ask for some help!



Carlo Renolo

Hey guys! I am proud to say that I will be one of the peer mentors this year.  I am excited to meet each and every one of you, even if you won’t be my personal  students.  I am also the president of Leadership Experience, an affiliate club of FYE, so if you are looking for opportunities such as community service, fundraisers, or socials, feel free to ask any questions!



Giovanni Lizcano

I’m 19 years old. I love the San Francisco 49ers and the SF Giants. I also enjoy all types of music as well as crime related TV shows and movies. Volunteering and helping other people is another thing that I enjoy doing in my spare time.



Kellie Westphal

When you’ve taken a fifteen year hiatus from school like I have, the prospect of going back to college seems terrifying! Luckily, I stumbled upon an application for this program, saw the words “priority registration,” and applied. I had no idea what to expect. One year and one completed FYE program later, I can happily report that I not only survived, but managed to thrive in college. I owe my success to FYE and the tools it provided me with. I’m thrilled that I have the opportunity to share what I’ve learned with incoming students.

Louis Mendez

I have overcome many barriers up to this point in my life. I grew up in San Francisco, around communities filled with gangs, drugs, and violence; I was raised by a single mom; And my role models were all on dead end paths. Not to mention, I’m a minority and a first-generation college student, but despite those barriers, I managed to find the right  road. Now my goal is to excel in all that I do and live a life of influence. 



Miranda Perry

Hey, guys! You’ll be seeing me around a lot and I’m excited to work with you. On campus, I am involved with the TRIO program and club, as well as the Leadership Experience club. I was in the FYE program last year, so I know first-hand what you guys are working with. I’m excited to see you all in class and be a Peer Mentor to some of you and if you ever have any questions or just want to talk, come say hi!
