A Saint Lucian national will be graduating with top honours this July in Taiwan, after excelling in several areas of her studies and having took part in several extracurricular activities.

Dr. Bettie Jn Baptiste has been studying in Taiwan for the past two years on a scholarship from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) in Taiwan through the Taiwanese embassy in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The scholarship is officially named the Taiwan Scholarship and Huayu Enrichment Scholarship.

Jn Baptiste told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that she is currently reading for her master’s degree in Public Health.

“I’m following an epidemiology track. My thesis is looking at the outcome of neonates that have been admitted to the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. I am hoping that with this study, we can make proper evidence based policy decisions to govern the NICU and have better neonatal outcome.”

Jn Baptiste has volunteered her time to many causes at the Taipei Medical University, and also took part in and won an inter-school talent competition by singing a song in Mandarin.

On Friday, she was one of the students awarded at a farewell party for all recipients of that scholarship programme who will be graduating this year, for being an outstanding student during her time of study.

In addition to being awarded a certificate for outstanding performance by the Tapei Medical University, she is also going to be the English-speaking Valedictorian at graduation.

Jn Baptiste is currently the international Students’ Association President at the university.

  1. My people, it's not possible to become a doctor in 2 years, as far as I know, but it is possible to be a doctor and pursue your Masters.


  2. Cowards hide behind fake names and talk lots of stupidity and ignorance. she was a dr before she went to do her masters. If you had any form of education you would know that. And my of my may sit behind your computer and comment on someone forehead that has accomplished what you can never do in this life time. Foolish and ignorant


  3. of all things you can talk about is the girl's forehead.. why dont you get a freaking life... go and educate yourself as welll!!! ignore A??? (and no i don't know her) u dam hater!!!


    • With a pea brain like yours that's why she is there and you're not! Punk!


    • So ignorant of you. If was a white foreigner you would congratulate them. If she did a crime you would say why she dont do something positive.. Smh


    • Hmm, that comment seems kind of personal. It really makes me wonder if you know her and are jealous that she's out there making progress. A word of advice, next time you feel the need to expose your inner hater, ask yourself is it's worth showing. (Hint: it's not.)
