“I always say that I have two full-time jobs. One is running my own law-firm and the other is being a mother of five children. My three youngest children are triplets so that makes it extra hard. I love being a mother and I love my job but my biggest challenge is to combine the two. When I come home after a long day at the office I try to help them by tutoring them with their homework. As a working mum I try to be an example for them but at the same time I try not to pressure them. I always tell my kids; ’‘Grades do not define who you are.” I care for my kids to be happy.“
(Doha, Qatar)
