I love school and most things academic. However, I have realised that trying to balance work, family and school can be very tricky. Despite the obvious challenges, I have successfully managed to juggle marriage, motherhood, a marketing career and postgraduate studies for years now.

In line with the above and my #PhDBefore30 goal, I recently created a Facebook Group, Postgraduate Support South Africa (a group for postgraduate students, researchers and seasoned academics). It hasn’t picked up momentum yet (mostly because I haven’t informed or invited anyone) but I am hopeful. If you are a postgraduate student, researcher and seasoned academic, you’re welcome to join the group. In the meantime, have a look and read through some of the artwork I have created for Postgraduate Support South Africa.
