(WXYZ) — It’s no surprise that some of the closest people in your life are your co-workers. But as much time as we spend together, there’s still a lot of things we don’t know about each other.

7 Action News Reporter Andrea Isom is working to change that by doing a story about a colleague who works just a few feet away.

This all started during a station-meeting, filled with 7 Action News employees, when one of them, Derrick Davis, shared something interesting about himself.

Derrick is a Broadcast Engineer. But when he’s not working at WXYZ, he’s mentoring kids! The program, just like Derrick, is awesome!

The mentoring program is called Encourage me I’m young. Also known as, EMIY!
