Wife, mother, sister, daughter; Jo Robinson goes by many titles, recently, she earned herself one more, graduating from the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) with a Bachelor of Commerce.

A mother of two, it took Jo just five years to complete her degree.

“I took six months after my wedding, and then I took more time off when I had my children,” she said.

Based on a rural property in Dalby, Jo did much of her study online, but when it came time for exams, she commuted to Toowoomba.

Determined to help her husband in his agriculture business, nothing could deter the 28 year old from achieving the graduation deadline she’d set for herself, not even a newborn.

Jo sat one of her last exam’s just three weeks after giving birth to her second daughter, Ava.

“My girls will watch me graduate on stage, they’ll see anything is possible, even when you’re a mum!”

Jo is one of many inspirational mothers studying at USQ. To unleash your fearless, please visit the University of Southern Queensland homepage
