BALANCING THE IN-BETWEEN

Vanessa Giraldo is a 30-year-old mother to two girls by her fiancé Derrick Wells. Giraldo is a full time online student at University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Her studies are centered around Psychology. Her fiancé works third shift, so Giraldo almost considers herself a single parent seeing as her fiancé is going into work and/or is asleep when they’re daughters are awake or going to bed. Giraldo feels her daily life may be boring seeing as it revolves mostly around her children, but to others it reveals a hectic lifestyle to be both a mother and a full-time student within the same person.
