Emma Shield

We asked women at Warwick to submit an image of themselves for inclusion in the Warwick Women's Montage and a short description of the challenges they've faced/continue to face and how they're dealing with them.

See Emma's submission below:

"Balancing an extremely overwhelming workload with taking my Mum for regular on-going medical appointments, whilst dealing with anxiety/worries around the fragility of my Mum, Auntie, 101 year old Grandma, and my sister who has lost all her work (she is a singer/entertainer) as that industry has ground to a halt, and was forced to relocate back 'home'.

I'm dealing with all this with the kind support of family, friends and colleagues, and mindfulness meditation, and exercise."
