Making the Choice to Go Back to School After Becoming a New Mom

How’s it going Mama’s ? 

I’ve been so busy in life lately that I’m glad I finally have the time to get back to keeping up with you all. I’m currently in the car on my way to NJ for my sisters graduation day, and although she’s not a mom, I was a mom two months ago on my graduation day. 


  1. Have you ever thought about how you can better your future for your child after giving birth to them? 
  2. Have you ever brought a child into this world and made the decision to be better immediately after, but you weren’t sure of which way to turn ? 

I’m here as a living testimony today to let you know that this is POSSIBLE and that you are amazing for even considering making your life choices based off of your child’s future.

Last August I had chosen to become better for my two month old son. Although I was a full time waitress, I knew that this was not enough for us. I had to do something GREATER, not just for him but for myself too.

I chose to go back to school and although I spent my whole life believing that psychology was my outlet, I ended up graduating from a medical assistant program instead.

There were long days, long nights, and many times when I wanted to give up but I always had to remind myself of why it was that I started in the first place.

I’m a very honest person therefore I’ll let you know that this decision was NOT easy. I was a full time employee, full time student, and a new part time mom to a new two month old baby boy.

There was the teething nights where I had an 8 page paper due, baby wouldn’t sleep and I couldn’t sleep because there were assignments to be done and a child to take care of. I became sleep deprived, I fought with myself each day to stay awake, and I didn’t think I would make it through.

It wasn’t until I realized that I only had 2 weeks left of school before graduation day which was when I received a very important email. The email had encouraged me to answer a few questions because I had been CHOSEN out of 200 students to become my class valadictorian and as long as I made out okay after competing with forty other students then I’d be speaking at graduation.

I was chosen. It was me that had not only made the deans list every module, but it was me who became the top of my class and managed to say a speech next to the President of my college.

I did it mama, and you can do it too.

At times life will make you feel as if nothing is possible and it’ll all be too hard but trust me; you are capable of anything once you realize that your child is your number one priority.

Take some time to realize how strong you are and that you’re capable of anything, and then choose to be better today. Your child’s future can be so much brighter if you make the choice to be better for them.

To the mother’s out there young or old that are making it happen for your children, I applaud you and I wish you nothing but the upmost success.

To the mother’s out there that are reading this article and considering to be better, this is a start. I am proud of you for even choosing to open this article because you are already a better mother.

Yes it may not be in your finances right now to go to school, but when you’re a mother, school systems are willing to help you as much as they can because the world overall wants you to be GREAT.

You can do it, and I am rooting for you all the way and so is your baby boy or girl.

“Never be afraid of the what if’s for the only fear that you should have is a fear of your own fear.”

Feel free to contact me to talk more or to work out a plan TOGETHER for your future.

  1. I graduated medical assistant school with an associates last May 2017. I only had my 7 year old at the time. I just gave birth to twins 3 months ago and I’m already thinking about what’s next for us. I really needed this post. Thank you!

  2. I went back to school when my kids were young too. It’s hard, but it’s worth it because the degree means so much more to me because of all the challenges I went through to earn it. Keep up the great work Jazz!

  3. I am always amazed by someone who never stops to learn and trying something new even if that means that times will get harder. cheers to you! you got this! =)

  4. Congratulations!! That is definitely an amazing accomplishment you should be proud of 🙂 Keeping your why in the back of your mind is important in everything you do. That is what keeps you motivated and moving forward when it seems so hard and want to throw in the towel. You kept going!
