Back to School

Back To School. Hey everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I am sharing my thoughts on going back to school. It feels amazing to be back in school after 5 years. Despite being a single mother, I made a decision to go back to further my education. Honestly, it was not easy. In this post, I am going to share how things went down in my first year being back to Education.  In this post, I am going to share my journey with you.

Back to School

Making The Decision

The last time I was in college was like 10+ years ago and although I tried very hard to succeed, I was unsuccessful. I had lots of doubt about going back. What am I going back for? Why do I want to go back? You have your daughter to look after Sonia, stay home and look after her. She needs a mother. You are just wasting your time going back.  I put myself so down, that I almost believed it. However, with lots of advice and planning, I decided to follow my heart and applied.

Here’s How My First Year Went

2017 – 2018 has been an amazing year! There have been many changes in my life. I saw growth and confidence in myself. There were some minor challenges but nothing major. The system has changed dramatically within 10 years. They now offer work placements to make use of their skills in a working environment. I had no confidence in myself whatsoever but I made new friends, everyone was nice in class and very supportive.

Why Did I Go Back?

For me, it was all about my daughter. I wanted my daughter to be safe! I wanted her to have a good childhood. So she was my first and only priority. If she is not happy or safe, I will not be able to carry on. I remembered how hard it was for me to get a job, it took years!! I got my first job when I was 21 years old after 5 years of job hunting. So you can imagine how desperate I was and still is to make sure I can provide for my daughter.
