Meet your FST Peer Advisor Ruth Bethel
Hello! My name is Ruth Bethel and I am an FST Peer Advisor. I am a double major in Biochemistry and Biology. Like any other student, I had expectations when starting UWI, which were met and exceeded. I've made some amazing friends, not just at the St. Augustine campus but even at the Mona and Cave Hill campus through my extracurricular activities. Being at UWI has helped me to be more confident than I was and has been a major factor in shaping who I am as a young person.
