How did you balance work/family demands with studying?
When I decided to start studying with iQ Academy I was about 8 months pregnant with my 3rd child, so we had to balance a lot as a household. With the support from my family, especially my husband, I was able to balance work, studies, and motherhood. I believed in myself and my family, in return, believed in me. It wasn’t easy but that encouragement helped me to push through some of the difficult times.
I also made sure I planned my time, with 3 kids it can get very busy! If I created a schedule and stuck to my plans then I would always get what I needed done on time, at work, with the family and in my studies. I really had to plan, and I had to involve my family in those plans too and they were always there to help me!
The support from my programme lecturer also helped me to keep my studies on track, they were always there when I needed help with something.
