When I became a parent I put a lot of things on the back burner, school included. After going through a divorce and starting my life again I realized that my education needed to be a priority again. Now that Toodie has started Kindergarten it has made my schedule much more flexible than before. I have decided to take advantage of this open door and continue my education by finishing my degree. I’ve worked hard to get where I am and was recently accepted into the business program at a new college. While I am ecstatic for the opportunity and to finish, I do remind myself that I am also a mom and that has obstacles of its own to compete with.
