Becoming a mum is one of the greatest things in life but it involves a lot of self-sacrifice. I always thought further education was one of the things I'd have to sacrifice because of the high fees of education and child care. Receiving the Frank Brake scholarship gave me the opportunity to cover my fees and to go back to university, making it possible for me to be a mum and a student.
