I tell my kids, nephews and nieces, anyone under the age of 20 really, to follow high school with college. Maybe it is college, perhaps it is the trade school, and maybe it is an internship. My point to them is to follow up with higher training when you have the time because as I know from first-hand knowledge finishing school while working and holding down a house and kids ain’t a walk in the park.

But not everyone has this opportunity

However, not every woman has this opportunity.  As I register for 12 semester hours, in the midst of an acquisition, I am thankful that I have the chance to go back to school. While I no longer qualify for hope scholarship because the statute of limitations has run out, I still live in a country where:

1. As a woman and mom, I can not only go to school, I am encouraged to do so
2. Federal loans are available and accessible for those that can be responsible with them.
3. Because I have a great job in which to pay back said loans.

I am mindful that not everyone can enjoy this type of opportunity
I accept that I chose this path and did not pursue higher education until now, it is my responsibility to manage and handle now training with all the new challenges going back to school carries
I appreciate that as a woman and mom, I am encouraged to go back to school
