Since completing Headstrong, Tiffany has been able to apply what she learned in her day-to-day study. While some of the concepts aren’t entirely new to her, she is now armed with resources and strategies that have changed her perspective and approach to elements of study.
Tiffany identified that the skills developed through the program didn’t just relate to her study, but to other elements of her life too. Whether she is chasing deadlines, chasing job opportunities or chasing her child around the house, Tiffany is now able to slow herself down, take a breath, and remind herself where she is in that very moment.
The road to completing her study is still a long one, but with belief in herself and strategies that will last the entire degree, Tiffany has set herself up for success as a student and believes others should do the same.
