It wasn't the easiest academic year, learning how to be a mum with a baby. It was certainly a challenge especially at the beginning when I was recovering from a C-section and my boy had colic for three months followed by bronchitis. Looking back I don't know how I never missed a deadline and coped with the sleepless nights and coursework. But I did and I couldn't be more proud.
All those people who laughed when I told them my plans, who told me that I wouldn't of lasted, that I was making the wrong decision. I proved them wrong. Being a mum has made me more focused than ever and I strongly believe that this contributed to the end result.
In September 2014 I will be moving onto a BA top up degree in Graphic Design. I am more determined than ever to reach my goals, to be financially stable, to be able to provide everything that my son would ever need. But most importantly, inspire him to work hard to achieve all his dreams.
Where there is a will, there is always a way.
