"Studying at TLC part-time over the last five years has been an amazing journey from beginning to end. Discovering my potential and diversity through exploration, invention, researching and transitioning between mediums, my personal drive and the amazing freedom to forge a path forward.
I was really keen to have a better work-life balance as I hit my 50s. It was the best decision I made for myself."
