What is a Appositive ?

An Appositive is, "a grammatical construction in which two elements, normally noun phrases, are placed side by side, with one element serving to define or modify the other".

We use appositives because sometimes when we write, we don't want to add another sentence with new information, we can just combine it in the same sentence.
