Why should you be Momploydent of the Month: I want other moms who are working full time and going to school to see that it is possible to balance it all
What's your motto? Family first!
What is motivating you to pursue your education? I want my children to see that there are no excuses but that hard work and determination can get you anywhere you want to go. By being a positive female role model I am hopeful that they will learn how to treat and respect women in their lives while also realizing that women are capable of everything that men are capable of.
What would you say is the key to your success? Balance and keeping a schedule. I live off of "to do lists" and make sure to have a support system around me to help me achieve my goals
If you could give another Momploydent advice, what would it be? Even when things seem impossible, keep going. Your hard work will pay off in the end.
Congratulations Rachel! You inspire us all! Keep up the great work! We'll be celebrating your graduation in May!!!
