How to balance university, work and doing what you love

Balancing work and your hobbies can be difficult, but Kirsten Noble shows us all how it's done. Second-year Accounting and Finance student at the University of Northampton, Kirsten Noble, has recently won the Women’s Premier League Play-offs with her team the Milton Keynes Falcons. Not only did her team win a stunning 5-1 victory against their rivals, the Chelmsford Cobras, but Noble managed to score a goal during the game and was named Player of the Match. Despite the intensity of the work involved in her course, Noble admirably maintains both her high level of sporting talent and studying – she has even been selected to trial for the Great Britain University Team. She advocates that "If you are dedicated to your sport, you will find a way to make time for it", which is a phrase applicable to any hobby or passion, for example playing in a band or travelling. Noble claims her ability to juggle her heavy workload and demanding sports commitments is due to the fact that training is on a Friday evening and games are at the weekend. According to Noble, she is able to focus on studying during the week, which allows her to dedicate herself to sport at the weekend. Not only a beloved hobby, Noble also sees Ice Hockey as a way of keeping fit and being social amidst the academic pressures of University life.
