Meet Ryan Herbert, final year student in the Faculty of Social Sciences and recipient of the national Humanitarian Award in 2022.  Ryan was recognized for his contribution during COVID lockdown in 2021 when he assisted with packaging hampers for distribution to disadvantaged persons. During this period, he volunteered in his capacity as a member of the Barbados Youth Parliament, which he had been a member of since 2018. While in Youth Parliament Ryan was also involved in fundraising events to make charitable donations to schools and the HIV Drive.

An Alleyne School alumnus, Ryan joined the faculty as a part-time student in 2019 in Political Science and later changed to the B.Sc. Psychology with Political Science programme. His interest lies in counselling and during 2022 he volunteered with Drug Education and Counselling Services assisting in counselling persons for substance abuse and anger management. He hopes to continue his studies in this area and eventually work as a counsellor. Ryan is currently working part-time while he continues his studies.
