How to balance studies with work and family demands:
Taking extra classes while working, family demands or during school has been always a challenged for a person. It is very tough to keep between balance between all of these activities as all are important for professional, personal and social growth.

The school had also given me online access to study material without exam questions. Now it was challenging for me to study while home because of my sister’s marriage.
