I think it’s good for people to know this up front, because it can make for somewhat unusual working hours. Over the last four years it’s worked great and I have fantastic clients, both in South Africa and overseas. I love my daughter and my work, and I’m very thankful that I get to fill my days with both.
My time on the communication team taught me far more than just new skills, and perspective and gratitude were probably the most valuable things I took back to South Africa with me in 2010. Since then I’ve been working as a graphic designer and I love that I so often get to play a part in helping to build someone’s dream!
