Aloha! My name is Remelyn Badua and I am the Mānoa Peer Advisor (MPA) for the Myron B. Thompson School of Social Work (MBTSSW), Dept. of Social Work. I am currently a senior in the Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program and hope to continue my education journey here at UH Mānoa by pursuing a Master of Social Work (MSW) with a specialization in Health. My experience of being a transfer student from Honolulu Community College (HCC) to UH Mānoa was less scary than I expected it to be all thanks to the help and patience of the MPAs at the time and I plan on paying it forward. I personally went through the BSW application process and I know it can be stressful. That is why I am available to assist students to the best of my ability through academic planning, referring them to resources and be able to clarify any questions and concerns. As an MPA and aspiring social worker, I can’t wait to assist you and be a part of your educational journey and success!

Please don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with me and feel free to refer to the contact information above. Hope to see you soon!
