Ruth is an award-winning a journalist who has been writing news articles and features since she was in eighth grade. The elementary position was not a paid one, but she believes it came with bylines. Moreover, it was still a thrill to pass out the mimeographed newspaper during homeroom. Since then, Ruth graduated to her high school and university papers. After freelancing, she was worked for a daily for several years.
Today, Ruth works as a grants/communications director, but still enjoys writing features and articles for the state's daily newspaper, The Advocate.
