Sassi from Teen Mom UK, has written a blog on how her life and career plans have changed since having Zena’ya as well as some tips for other young parents.
Life and career plans before Zena’ya
I feel like I’ve not really put any dreams on hold to be a mum. I didn’t really know what I wanted from life before I had Zena’ya. I just wanted to have a fun life, party and travel and I wanted to do a season abroad as a holiday rep. I also did hair and beauty at college because I wanted to be a nail technician.
Life and career plans with Zena’ya
All my goals and ambitions have changed now. I want bigger and better things for my family and that’s the key word. I want to still have a fun life and travel but as a family.
I still want to go traveling but just with Zena’ya now.
Instead of a party travel I wanna see India and Asia and also Africa but life still has to go on even though you’re a parent! I’m currently doing general construction. I just wanted a hands-on-job that was a bit of a challenge… I wanna be financially stable in life. I’ve never always had money, it comes and goes so I wanna be able to just go and come when I want. In order to do so I need to graft and graft and save and save then do it all again ‘till I reach where I wanna be.
Advice for other young parents
You have to learn to juggle your life around sometimes. It’s crazy but you have to take the rough with the smooth and just keep pushing forward.
The only support I get really is from Darren but when her Nanna asks to have her fom the night, it’s like a heaven send and it’s important to have time for YOU. Being a parent is hard full stop but just being this little person’s everything is the best thing!
