I am a 43-year-old student here at Sinclair. I am returning to change my path after 25 years in the same career. I have chosen a difficult program, but my passion for it is strong. I am getting good grades so far, and have been able to balance everything quite well.

I’m sure that I’m not the only one here. It is really tough to go home, get dinner ready, do some work, keep a home and when you finally sit down to quietly study, there’s yet 3 more things that need to be

Sincerely, Balancing act
