I began graduate school when my daughter was 3 months old. While I struggled with the idea internally, I didn’t think that in this day and age I would be met with external (and unwanted!) words that mirrored discouragement. These words came from men and women alike; the young and the older. These words did not take me off of the path I envisioned. It was the perfect time in my life to continue my education and explore my motherhood journey.
My daughter is now 20 months and I am graduating this spring with a Master of Public Administration (woo hoo!). I look forward to the next chapters of my blooming career and I hope that you will continue this journey with me.
